    Cycling in Turia Park

    September 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After our paella experience, we stopped past the ancient silk exchange building and headed to Turia Park - this park runs all the way through the city in what used to be the riverbed, which was diverted many years ago.

    We hired a 4 person bike - reminiscent of the crazy crocodile bikes along Oriental Bay in Wellington.
    The park itself wasnt too impressive - not the stretch we were in at least - but it was good fun and we stopped of for icecream on the way.

    Our final evening in Valencia was spent at home relaxing, recuperating and doing washing, with an excellent pizza from the local restaurant to top it off.

    Kultur und Fun im Guliver Park

    October 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Mit David stand am Donnerstag eine Soziokulturelle Aktivität auf dem Plan. Der perfekte Tag, denn es war leicht bewölkt. Das Naturkunde Museum von Valencia liegt nicht weit von der Sprachschule entfernt so dass wir zu Fuss laufen konnten. Für Kinder ist es ideal: klein, gut strukturiert und einige Dinge zum Anfassen.

    Danach sind wir einem Tipp von David gefolgt.
    Im Zentrum von Valencia, ebenfalls im Turia Park, gibt es einen etwas anderen Spielplatz. Eine riesige Figur von Gulliver, der an den Strand gespült und von den Liliputanern am Boden gefesselt wurde. Die Kinder können auf seinem Körper rutschen und klettern.

    Valencia, my favourite building, ever!

    September 13, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    I know these buildings from my time, when I had been working as a car designer.
    It was often used as a background for new showcars as it looks so futuristic. And I am really impressed if I stand in reality in front of them!
    Could be taken for a James Bond movie and everyone would say :"Nice 3D animation!", haha

    Park Gulliver

    October 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Danach sind wir einem Tipp von David gefolgt.
    Im Zentrum von Valencia gibt es einen etwas anderen Spielplatz. Es handelt sich um eine riesige Figur von Gulliver, der an den Strand gespült und von den Liliputanern am Boden gefesselt wurde. Die Kinder können auf seinem Körper rutschen und klettern. Dieser spektakuläre Spielplatz ist so groß, dass es unmöglich ist, ihn vom Boden aus zu überblicken. Deshalb ist sein Hut, der ein paar Meter entfernt liegt, ein maßstabsgetreues Modell des Gulliver-Parks. Der Gulliver-Park liegt auch im langen und verwinkelten Turia Park, der im ausgetrockneten Flussbett des Turia errichtet wurde.Read more

    Cittadella di Arte e Ciencias

    June 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Leggiamo del controverso architetto artefice della cittadella dell’Arte e della Scienza: Calatrava. Nonostante le critiche mosse dai Valenciani (extra costi, difetti di progettazione) l’area creata toglie il fiato per bellezza ed equilibri delle forme, che richiamano al mondo naturale.Read more

    Valencia Spain on Sunday

    September 18, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    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.
