My host family’s apartment is right by the Guadalquivir river. Everyday I walk across the bridge on my commute to class and looking over the water there are almost always people kayaking or paddle boarding. Every once in a while you can see larger ships docked on the side of the river. Only once was I able to spot a fish when looking over the bridge railing, but it was a pretty large size fish. The side across from our apartment has a long boardwalk with many restaurants and bars. There is even a pop up gym right by the water. The gym is in the form of a cube shaped storage unit that opens us, containing an assortment of bars, weights, and other equipment.
The boardwalk is perfect for a place to run, a perfect two mile distance back and forth on the main boardwalk area. The majority of the boardwalk is paved or sandy, but unfortunately there are patches of cobblestone that make you feel as if one misplaced step would result in a broken ankle.
