Oh how we enjoyed Sevilla. The royal palace had such a small line (unlike the Alhambra) and was even free for students. It is highly recommended.
Our hostel was awesome too - Samay. Just the right size and just the right amenities. They also had a lot of evening activities which allowed us to meet some amazing new friends (oh how cheesey but true).
It managed to rain for two days when we were there but we cared not since we were happily tapa-ing and drinking wine through the drizzle. We were there right after Easter so we saw some strange stuff like these candies:
What a strange and wonderful Spanish experience.
