This is the fifth edition of my bi-weekly series, Friday Fix, a quick burst of inspiration to spur you (and me) on through our final day in the office. The idea of these photos is to give you a glimpse of some of the most incredible places I've ever found in a format you can digest in a coffee break...
Arriving in Seville without any of the travelling friends I'd been collecting on that trip, I was truly by myself for the first time in weeks. Far from being lonely, I revelled in the freedom and spent days wandering about, aimlessly trying to soak in the city.
Less than one hundred years old, the Plaza de España is intricately decorated with so many colours it's almost gaudy. This perfectly designed complex is a gigantic half-moon shape of buildings fringed by a moat and numerous bridges which apparently represent the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. The Vicente Traver fountain (below) forms the eye's pupil- an impressive focal point when looking out into the courtyard. To the left is an example of one of the many tiled alcoves which run around the base of the buildings, carefully painted to each show a different province of Spain.
I just couldn't help falling a little in love.
Thank-you for stopping by and have a great weekend!
