Free Lodging in Sevilla via Home Exchange Hospitality

We’ve arrived in Sevilla, yet another super cute and friendly Spanish city, with delicious food, gorgeous architecture, and an abundance of beautiful churches. And in this city we have the added benefit of the hospitality of some friends we met through home exchange.
