    Cultural city with traditional Paella

    September 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    A stroll through the back street's of Valencia lead us to the famous fountain at Plaza de la Virgen, complete with busking jazz saxophonists and some eloquent violin playing to add to the atmosphere.

    Next up was Valencia Cathedral, home to the elusive Holy Grail. Turns out Indiana jones was looking in the wrong place. The cathedral was an architectural masterpiece, complete with relics of the patron saint of valencia and impressive paintings, statues and a gold and jewelled monstrance.

    We now relax in a little Paella restaurant, recommended by our hosts. Paella was invented in Valencia so fingers crossed for an excellent meal.

    June 6, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Heute sind wir mit dem Fahrrad nach Valencia gefahren. In der gesamten Stadt gibt es gute Fahrradwege. Zuerst haben wir die Kathedrale besichtigt. Danach ging es zum "Plaza Redonda". Im Reiseführer wurde beschrieben, dass man hier Stände findet die kachelverkleidet sind und beispielsweise Nähzeug verkaufen, allerdings wurde der Platz renoviert und wir waren eher enttäuscht von der neuen Optik. Dann ging es weiter zum "Mercado Central", dem Hauptmarkt Valencias. Er ist der größte überdachte Markt Europas. Danach sind wir noch zum "Torres de Quart", ein Tor und kleines Stück der alten Stadtmauer. Dann sind wir noch durch das älteste Viertel Valncias "Barrio del Carmen". Wir finden Valncia ist eine schöne Stadt, die Sehenswürdigkeiten sind aber nichts besonderes.Read more

    La Lonja de la Seda

    October 19, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    La Lonja de la Seda is so much nicer a name (especially if you can pronounce it properly) than The Silk Exchange, but either way it was a pretty impressive building. We seem to be following our own little Silk Road here after staying in the silk quarter in Lyon we are practically across from the silk exchange here in Valencia. Certainly silk played an important role in the history of both cities.Read more

    Art is a product of inspiration - it's a quintessence of feelings, emotions, thoughts; it comes from these intangible "fabrics" and is destined to inspire others passing them those #emotions and creating new ones

    "She was a whore...
    With crowds standing in a row
    To get some pleasure in a bed
    Among the pillows...bloody red...
    Kissing plump lips in wild lust
    That know no hatred, nor disgust,
    Giving them all consuming pleasure
    And her young body shining treasure.
    To ultimately being thrown
    With broken... every single bone.
    ...but soul intact...
    Even a #whore does have a #soul
    That's holding life as a charcoal
    Shining alone in the night
    With light so dazzling and so bright!
    ...that can't be as a body fucked..."
