We made it

Hola family and friends!

We are here and loving our apartment and the city! All the baggage came through and the flights were just fine. Didn't sleep a whole lot on the planes but we were able to rest when we got to our place. The staff took us out to dinner (at 9pm!) the day we got in to a little restaurant by the river that runs through the city. We ate on the roof with some spectacular views! No pictures yet but soon. We slept well that night because we were so tired from all the traveling!

Woke up to the sounds of a street sweeper and men being incredibly noisy as they set up scaffolding just a couple apartments down at 7:30am. That will take some getting used to.... we slept in as best as we could and got up to make an IKEA run. The IKEA is just outside the city.. a 10 minute walk to the bus station and a 10 minute ride and we were there. Bought a few fun things for our place and walked back to the bus station in the lovely 100 degree weather and went home! After a nice little siesta we went to do some more exploring in the city and have found a cafe down the street from our apartment with free WiFi, so here we are writing you a quick note.

We also thought we should share the actual address of our apartment, as we were misinformed about the number. If you want to look it up on
Google maps, you can search for: Calle Galera 12, Seville, Spain. You can look up when you are in the "street view" and see the windows to our place on the 2nd floor. The are a little to the right of when you first go to the street view... you should see flower pots in the window :)

Well, we are off to do some more exploring! Enjoy the photos below of our place and we will post more soon.

Love, Jordan and Sarah

Our door!

Our TV, to the right of the door as you walk in

Jordan is a giant in our kitchen.

The windows in our living room.

The loft is to the left of the door just as you walk in. Can't even open the door all the way because of the stairs! Love tiny European apartments!

A view of the living room from the loft.

The loft, where many of you will be staying! No worries, the futon is comfy.

The bathroom

Bathroom still, including washer.

Bedroom. Jordan's feet stick out quite far on this bed.. a small adjustment from our CA king back home!

Window in our bedroom. The only fan. No air conditioner... for now...

Wow! You're there! Love the pics of the apt. Nice kitchen rafters, Jordan! You may be walking like Cory's grandpa after living there a while! I am so excited for your new adventure! Have fun and God Bless!

Glad you both got there safe, mother was worried all day until she heard from you! The apartment looks cute and I'm sure you will give it a nice touch, Sarah. Enjoy!

I love following your adventures!! I know you will make the apt your own and create wonderful memories there! Some of which I hope to be a part of in the future! :-) It sounds so enchanting, with the cafe around the corner and the view to the courtyard below...I love it! Poor Jordan, the gentle giant, I hope you manage to get some sleep and do some mean cookin in that tiny kitchen!
Love you guys so much and look forward to every story and every photo!

This is ashley setting up grandma's account so she can talk to you!! Grandma says "hi! and wish she was there."

This is Grandma testing. The soup was great. I will not sleep on the futon. Is there a hotel nearby?
