Sevilla and The Road

A drive through viewing

View Europe Camping Trip on suzythey's travel map.

After sleeping in a car in a parking lot, we were not in the best mood (keep in mind we had been living on apples, bread with nutella, and water this whole time). Seville probably never stood much of a chance with us, but we tried anyway. We drove straight toward the sites, since we were already in the city and didn't need to tear down a camp.

After getting to the city, though, things stopped being easy. We found that the whole city had absolutely no parking, and as we had discovered the night before, this made it very hard to find wifi. We had researched what we needed to see, and since there wasn't much that was very easy to find or get to, and since parking was pretty much non-existent anywhere (we had spent 2 hours driving around looking for parking, but there was nothing), we had decided that we would do a quick drive by, taking pictures of things, and then leave.

We did just that. We took pictures of things that looked interesting, and then we got back on the road. Seville was as crowded and hard to get around in as Barcelona, and we couldn't do that again.


We got back on the road and found somewhere to research campsites close to Madrid, since we were sure we could make it there on time. We found a campsite in Aranjuez (we had never heard of it), and we headed that way.


We settled into our extremely noisy campsite, to find out, after nearly an hour of looking for it, that there was a festival going on that entire week. The town was blocked off almost entirely, and there was loud music and screaming going on all through the tiny town and campsite. The town itself would have been a very pretty place, had it not been nearly impossible to get around. The loud crowds and blocked streets made this cute little town a bit unbearable.

Logan slept right through the night, but I had a hard time, considering the fact that the concerts went on until dawn. I did not get a good sleep that night, but I made a promise to myself to do better the next night.

Next stop...Madrid!
