What is UHave2Go!

Hey! Thanks for checking us out. Uhave2Go! is a photo sharing website for travel and photography lovers, and for everyone else in between who enjoy going places and discovering the new. Uhave2go collects travel photos and information about those places, events or activities you loved, and the goal is to become the go to site for inspiration to travel around the World and make the most out of the places you go to. Basically, inspire you to go... wherever it is that you want to go.

It all started with a few hundred travel photos from my trips through Asia and South America and one idea, UHave2Go!, a site that would be inspiration for others to travel around the World and share their photography and thoughts of the places they loved. The rest has been hard work, learning, lots of adjustments and brainstorming.

I'm always looking for creative ideas that will help the site grow and make UHave2Go! better everyday. Please leave your feedback Here

A day in Sevilla was not enough, it was nothing. At the same time it was a lot of information, lots of stories suggested in every corner, at every turn of our city tour bus. Sevilla is the fourth largest city in Spain and has a long and fascinating history, but before, a little bit of wikipedia won't hurt: "is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. It is the capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia and of the province of Seville. It is situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir, with an average elevation of 7 metres (23 ft) above sea level." Gustavo Adolfo Bequer, Antonio Machado and painter Diego Velazquez were born in this 2,000 year old city. The Ibero-American exhibition in 1929, also took place in Sevilla and several buildings and urban landmarks stil remain from that time. Many actually I think they should let go, but, it's ok to see through these buildings how much our architectural taste and designs have evolved. Other things to mention are the beautiful gothic cathedral, now known as La Giralda, amongst the largest of all medieval and gothic cathedrals, and the General Archive of The Indies, which is the document repository of extremely valuable documents illustrating the history of the Spanish Empire in the Americas and the Philippines. The cathedral has its own history that goes back to the Arab and Moorish times of Andalusia. And then there are things you will not find written in books. How well dressed some people will be in the streets (or I have been living in L.A. for too long), sort of traditional/elegant fashion is very common and how alive and intense the night becomes when thousands of people walk through and around the narrow downtown streets, sitting at little cafes, gathering at small plazas, drinking beer and maybe listening to the occasional trio of flamenco that just happened to be walking by in the middle of dinner (sounds like Spain). Or that bridge railing filled up with locks of couples who have promised eternal love to each other, and that one more modern and open minded couple who just in case, used a combination lock instead. Good for them. In a heartbeat, I would go back to Sevilla for another day, and another night.
