Deidre's Travel Tips for Seville

What are the best places to eat and drink in Seville?

Almiranta tapas-Restaurante - next to the post office and across from the cathedral - next to La Campana. Their tapas are amazing - highly recommend the patas bravas and the Tinto de Verano. The service was phenomenal and I didn’t have one bad meal there.

What are the best things to do in Seville?

I lived in Sevilla while studying abroad so I always go back my visit my neighborhood when I visit. Calle de Asunción, in the Los Remedios neighborhood, is a favorite as it’s a pedestrian street filled with shops, bars, and off the beaten path of the tourist area. I always love going into the neighborhoods for a bit of quiet when I’m visiting Sevilla.

What is the best tip for solo travel in Seville?

I am a big fan of walking tours when I visit new places. Airbnb is fantastic with offering walking tours within cities and often times I can meet people on those tours to go have a drink with afterwards. I did two walking tours while in the city and discovered sights within the city that I wouldn’t have otherwise visited if it wasn’t for the tour.

Lisa's Travel Tips for St. Croix

What are the best places to eat and drink in St. Croix?

Rhythms at Rainbow Beach had great food, great location, wonderful and friendly staff.

What are the best things to do in St. Croix?

I liked the sundial on the easternmost point in the US. I wish we had a bit more info on how to read the dial. Beautiful landscapes on the way there. Stopped at Chambers Beach. Watch out for the lizards and I got into stickers by the trees so keep your shoes on. I heard Duggans Reef is a great place to eat but they are only doing dinner.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to St. Croix?

We enjoyed the central area that Colony Cove condos is at with a restaurant within walking distance (just for dinner) as well as close to 2 grocery stores. The condos on Sugar Beach has a better oceanfront. Food/groceries are expensive. If I'm traveling with kids, peanut butter and jelly works for them. I do recommend getting somewhere with a kitchen. I brought some snacks in my suitcase as well as mac and cheese and canned tuna.

Lyndsay's Travel Tips for Lisbon

What are the best places to eat and drink in Lisbon?

We loved our breakfast at Dear Breakfast and had an amazing Brazilian dinner at O Boteco.

What are the best things to do in Lisbon?

We love wandering around new cities and getting lost as we explore! So many tourists opt for taxis to get from one place to another, but we think finding our way around is the best way to really immerse ourselves in the culture around us. This was tiring in Lisbon - we were definitely going up hill both ways at times - haha! but it was so worth it.

What is the best tip for celebrating your birthday in Lisbon?

Make reservations at for breakfast and dinner but then keep the rest of the day open, so you can explore at your own pace!
