Tuesday, January 18th "What I do"
If you read through much of
the site then you likely have stumbled upon my profession aside from running
this non-revenue generating web site here. I love exploreseville and wish
I could spend all of my time taking photos, adding content and writing
about whatever new things come up in Sevilla. But that doesn’t really
pay the bills. The way I try to pay the bills is by working at Sevilla5.com,
where I run the online hotel reservation portion of the business. Markus,
my partner, takes care of the apartment reservations. All of this is geared
to the tourist or short term visitor, which makes my site a helpful resource
as well. Much of my time is spent answering emails, talking to hotels
and making bi-weekly visits to see that everything is working. I take
a lot of pictures and do a lot of online research for the hotels we select.
I also work with a few language schools and other businesses plus get
to meet with a lot of interesting people from just about every corner
of the globe. And I have a little more freedom than my last job –
a bar or café is often my office. I get invited to a beer or tapa
every now and then, or can enjoy an hour hanging out in a 4 star hotel
patio with a free cup of coffee. When I am not glued to my laptop, I spend
a lot of time in the street running from one place to another.
