FAVOURITE PHOTO

VALENCIA WAS MY FAVOURITE CITY IN SPAIN. WE STAYED
ON THE CORSO AT THE BEACH AT HOTEL APARTAMENTOS
BANJONDILLO. IT WAS AN EASY BUS RIDE INTO THE CITY.

IT WAS THE ARCHITECTURE IN VALENCIA THAT BLEW ME AWAY.
THERE WERE SOME UNIQUE BUILDINGS HERE WITH GORGEOUS
ORNATE DESIGNS.
A GOOD WAY TO SEE ALL OF THIS IS TO TAKE THE HOP ON, HOP OFF BUS.

LAKE ALBUFERA

IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO GO TO LAKE ALBUFERA, THEN I WOULD
STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU DO.

WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO MEET UP WITH VIRTUALTOURIST FRIEND
MAHESH WHO KINDLY OFFERED TO DRIVE US THERE :)

MAHESH TOOK US TO HIS LOCAL TAPAS RESTAURANT FOR DINNER.
BEST MEAL WE HAD IN SPAIN!! :) AND THE SPANISH RED WINE THAT
MAHESH CHOSE WAS VERY GOOD TOO.

VALENCIA HAD A WARM HOMELY ATMOSPHERE. THE PEOPLE WERE
VERY FRIENDLY AND GREETED OR SMILED AT YOU IN THE STREET.
SOMETHING MOST CITIES SADLY LACK THESE DAYS.

IT EVEN FELT SAFE WANDERING AROUND AT NIGHT.

OCEANOGRAPHIC

I'M NOT A REAL ANIMAL PERSON. I PREFER PLANTS AND FLOWERS.
WE SAW ANOTHER UNUSUAL BUILDING AND WANDERED OVER FOR
A LOOK.

WELL IT WAS AN UNDERWATER WORLD. HUBBY COULDN'T RESIST....
SO I TAGGED ALONG :)

WE HAD A LOVELY AFTERNOON WANDERING AROUND IN HERE AND
THE DOLPHIN SHOW WAS PRETTY GOOD TOO.

WE TRIED OUT A COUPLE OF RESTAURANTS ALONG THE BEACH CORSO.
