Fiona’s blog, Scribbler in Seville, looks at life as an expat working mother living in Spain.
In it, she writes about her favourite places in Seville, things to do with your family, what it’s like to live here, a bit about eating and drinking, and the inside track on world-renowned local events such as Feria and Semana Santa, as well as smaller traditional fiestas and the Carnaval de Cadiz.
These are some of her blog’s most popular posts.
