I always felt like a foreigner from the beginning of life so when I actually became one, I felt more at home. ~ Tim Burton

Born in Canada by mistake, I’ve been living in Seville, Spain since September 1993. Previously I have lived in Winnipeg, Toronto, Bristol and Salamanca (in that order).

In May 2006 I started casa az – it was my first ever blog and was created as a general interest, as well as personal interest, “blogazine” type of place.

Then came Sevilla Tapas, my personal collection of the best tapas bars & restaurants in Seville, which started quite by chance in April 2007 when I was out for lunch with a friend. It was such a beautiful spring day that I took a few photos of the square where we were sitting. For a laugh I also took photos of our lunch to show friends on my casa az blog. The response was so positive that I started publishing regular “lunch posts”, which eventually led to starting this separate website for Sevilla Tapas and the Azahar Sevilla blog.

Posts here will include topics such as culture, travel, accomodation, “alternatours”, cooking classes, tapas, restaurants, wines, flamenco, books & films, and places of interest.
