Even though I have experienced the Latin culture from traveling to Colombia, transitioning into the Sevillaño culture and a whole new environment is still overwhelming. It helps that I can speak the language, but as far as learning how to get places and discovering short cuts, it takes time. My main concern when embarking on this new journey of mine was how I would be able to get around the city and find my way to my new university.

I found out that my neighborhood called “Triana” is close to my university as well as places many Sevillaños go to have fun. There are so many streets that my friends and I thought they all looked the same when walking around, but within four days, I was familiar with “Triana” and the main streets of Seville.

One of the many things I enjoy about Spain is how easy it is to get around. We've decided the day before that we wanted to have a beach day, so we went to a beautiful city close to Seville called Cadiz. It took an hour and a half to get there by train and we had the whole day to explore.

I didn't realize how many things there are to do and see in Seville until I really walked around. My transition into Seville culture has been so smooth, and I am already falling in love with this beautiful place.
