Having arrived in Seville and doing a little exploring our attention turned to the matter of negotiating travel from Seville to Gibraltar. It would seem that the Spanish have no desire to provide easy access to the British territory that occupies the southern tip of Spain.
It would require over 5 hours on a bus each way to get in an out of Gibraltar and that’s only if everything came together perfectly.
We discussed our options and decided to eliminate the one day Gibraltar leg of this journey.
This left us with a need to decide if we wanted to go somewhere else, or just stay an extra day in Seville. Once we decided that we would just stay here we had to see about accommodations. We checked with our current hotel and they were booked. Fortunately we were able to book a room at the hotel down the street so we’re all set.
Tomorrow we’ll see if we can get into the cathedral and perhaps on Wednesday we’ll day trip to Cordoba. It all depends on how we feel. For now we’re just relieved to have all the details re-mapped so we can rest a little easier knowing we won’t have to hunker down for the night in some dark alley or at the train station.
