Hey, I'm Nadia & Moises!
Sevilla, Andalucía, Spain · Member since September 2012

Hi! Here's a little bit about Moises, me and Milo :)

We have lived together since 2008, and in that time have had people stay with us from many different places from all over the world. We love having visitors, and hearing about their various adventures and stories.

We are both 'creative types', and both studied Graphic Design (although not together). I am from the UK and Moises is from Seville. Moises is a freelance graphic designer, and (in my opinion) an extremely talented artist. I am an English teacher, and instead find my creative outlet through craft classes for kids, and turning my hand to anything I can, from crochet, to ceramics, to furniture restoration etc...

In 2013 our little family of 3 (me, Moises and the guinea pig... more on him later...)
became a little family of 4 with the addition of our son Milo! We are trying to speak our separate mother tongues to him with the hope that he becomes bilingual, and hope that you and the many languages that flow through our home (be it French, German, Japanese or whatever) will help him tune into the beauty of the different ways we all communicate.

As a family we spend as much of our free time as possible out in the wonderful Andalucian sunshine, and love walking around the city, for example to Triana to eat grilled quails at our favourite bar, or along the old Expo '92 riverside, and into the aromatic gardens. We also enjoy travelling in our beautiful campervan. For the cyclists among you, there are rentable bikes just round the corner. The city is PERFECT for exploring by bike as it is so flat, and has loads of bike paths laid out.

Finally we have a little 5 year old guinea pig, who I'm afraid to say is thoroughly spoilt and is basically the fourth member of our family. 'Guini' almost always comes travelling with us, whether it's a weekend at the beach, or a longer trip around Spain. He's very friendly, and eternally patient, especially with the kids at my school, who he visits once a year to be stroked and prodded by.

We LOVE the area we live in, and the Alameda is perfect be you night owl or day bird. It's always got something going on: music festivals, exhibitions, markets etc, and is a great place for tapas... there are a few tapas bars and restaurants we couldn't live without!

I think that more or less sums us up! I have only one more thing to say:
Seville is dangerously addictive. The Sevillanos are friendly, the tapas is tasty, and you can do A LOT with only a little cash. I came here for only 6 months in 2006... and still haven't found a way to leave yet! I think I might have to resign myself to the fact I never will ;)
