    Had a relaxing day we went into the town and saw a UNESCO activity where people come sit outside the church to discuss the water irrigation however there's nothing to talk about now so they sit for 5 mins then leave. Then had a yummy gelato. Then nearly missed the bus AGAIN to Barcelona due to laziness and bad time management. Then when we got to Barcelona we met the boys friends from their Croatia trip who stayed with us.Read more

    Liz loving the Lizarran

    June 4, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Having had a lazy day, a little exploration was in order. To that end, somewhere new but also relatively accessible so as not to stress Liz's dodgy ankle. Opted for a walk along the river bed park to the old town. Ankle dependent, posdibly head up the cathedral tower. The great thing about Valencia is the vast amounts of shade & quiet walking routes there. From the hotel - straight down to the Science musuem & the Hemispheric - which offered a cool route to the river park. Lots of cyclists, a bubble guy & a noisy playground moddled on a giant gulliver. From there took in the bull ring, the palatial town hall & finally the cathedral. 8 euros to go in was a bit steep, thankfully noticed the much smaller queue was for the tower. 2 euros & the most bored cashier in the world. In theory there was a traffic light system for going up & coming down. He couldn't be arsed monitoring it & had opted for green lights both ways & chaos half way up. Bit tight @ the top & hard work for Liz's ankle but some great views of the city. Nice ice cream as a reward at the bottom. Headed back for a relax & swim depending on your viewpoint. Pre-dinner explore of Oceanographique area turned into a park walk - cost & was closing. Opted for a tapas bar called Lizarran - waiter was very helpful. Help yourself & the bill was based on the number of Pincho skewers on your plate. Back to base for a replay of the Final - just to make sure it really happened. It did!Read more

    Wir hatten Glück und haben einen Parkplatz nur 3 km von der Altstadt entfernt gefunden. Die Altstadt hat uns sehr gut gefallen, besonders die schöne Bar mit den tollen Tapas vor der wir wunderbar gesessen und den Straßenmusikern zugehört haben. Zu Alex Freude sang in der Kathedrale gerade bei unsere Ankunft ein Chor einen Choral.Read more

    La Cathedral

    October 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    .... und schließlich über den Plaza de la Reina zur Kathedrale, die mit ihren drei Teil Gebäuden auch drei architektonische Epochen beinhaltet - mit romantischen gotischen und barocken Elementen.
    Das Ende unserer kleinen Stadtführung war auf dem Plaza de la Virgen, wo Jesus noch einiges über die Wasserwirtschaft in Valencia erzählt hat. Insgesamt sehr interessant; auch wenn ich einige Dinge noch in meinem Reiseführer nachlesen musste um die Zusammenhänge zu verstehen.

    Plaza de Reina

    October 13, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Bei dem Wetter Hat sich Monika gleich ein neues Outfit gekauft. Hier am Plaza de Reina gibt es auch den Schmuck dazu.

    Und ein Plätzchen zum Sitzen, und mehr.

    Hier holt uns dann auch die Sonne ein, die uns dann den Rest des Tages meistens begleitet. Au jeden Fall verzichten wir gerne auf die Sonnenschirme.Read more
