    Valencia Spain on Sunday

    September 18, 2017 in Spain

    Can't seem to beat the rain these days. But it held off and we took the port shuttle to the edge of town then got on the hop on off bus to see the sights. Unfortunately the roads down town were closed for a family bike event so we got off the bus and walked in. Den found a church service being held by the arch bishop! The rest of us waited at McDonald's lol. Headed back to the ship by cab early as the roads were busy and had to be aboard by 4. Did some packing and enjoyed a last dinner with prime rib.
    I think it has been a fantastic trip but we are likely all ready to go home. I'll fill in more details when I get home.

    Valencia, Spain

    April 19, 2016 in Spain

    Had a great trip from Barcelona on the Remfe train. Heaps of space to move around. Better than the Montpellier to Barcelona trip and no rude French conductors tyring to fine you.
    The weather is amazing again for us.
    We are staying at the Dimar hotel, it is amazing. Love this hotel and it is a far cry from the crap we stayed in in Barcelona. Little bit of road noise but nothing compaired to Barcelona hotel.
    Walked around the old city on the first afternoon and got lost. Walked for hours. Lovely old city and has a great vibe to it. More relaxed though addmitadly it is Sunday and nothing much open. Ate too much again of course. Paela and potos bravos.
    Next day in Valencia we did a bike tour. What a fantastic way to see the city. The guide was fantastic. This was booked through Viator (Valencia bike tour). It went for 3 hours at a good pace and mostly used the park land which is so peaceful and beutiful. Visited a few places of interest as well and out guide even minded the bikes while we went into the barcilica. It was not much to look at from the front but the inside was spectacular. The wind was up today so it was quite cool and needed a jacket otherwise we would not have needed one. The weather is sunny though they were predicting rain. Doesn't even look like rain. Nice to see the weather people can't get it right here either. They are consistant all over the world. Paela agian for lunch with salad and the nicest olives I have ever tasted.

    Estadía (2/2): Valencia

    June 1, 2017 in Spain

    Nach unserem herausragenden Mittagsmenü, bestehend unter anderem aus Calamaressalat und Lammkeule, sind wir per Bus zu der Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències. Das ist ein kultureller und architektonisch sehr modern wirkender Gebäude- und Parkkomplex, wir fanden es sah fast aus wie auf einem anderen Planet.
    Im Wissenschaftsmuseum haben wir mit dem Space Simulator die ISS besucht und den Rest der interaktiven Ausstellung genossen. 🚀
    Die Architektur des Komplexes hat uns sehr fasziniert, wie aus der Zukunft, dabei wurde schon in den 90ern mit dem Bau begonnen.
    Anschließend haben wir einen Abstecher ins Russafa Viertel gemacht, dort war es auch neben der Altstadt sehr belebt und wir haben super Churros und Buñuelos gefunden. ☕
    Danach haben wir die pulsierende Innenstadt genossen, dabei hat uns sogar eine Big Band die auf einem Sightseeing-Bus durch die Stadt gefahren ist immer mal begleitet. 🚌
    Fazit: Valencia hat unser Herz erobert und liegt für uns noch vor Barcelona. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder und sind bereits jetzt traurig dass es morgen weiter geht. Und auch langsam wieder nach Hause... 🚖

    València - Encounters

    May 25, 2016 in Spain

    It's all about the people you meet - that is what enriches you most on your travels!

    Sports-Story
    I went to the park to do some sports. After an hour of running and some exercices I was finished. When I just started stretching a guy came along. He told me he was a personal trainer and done with his first group of the day and asked if I want him so show me some exercises.
    To be honest, first I was sceptic but then just gave it a try.
    AND: it was really cool. We just met, did some sports together, I learned some nice Tricks and that's it!
    Lessons learned again: People are nice! Don't always expect something strange! Just take your opportunities!

    That's it 😊
    Song of the day:
