Julie & Thomas’s Travel Diary

Friday, 11 Jul 2008

Location: Valencia, Spain

MapThe bus ride from Granada to Valencia was our big travel day – 9 hours. However, this was made bearable by the nice scenery and ended up being a relaxing day really. On our trip we crossed the mountains and ended up on the Mediterranean coast which we followed for about 3 hours.

Valencia is a really good looking city – Spain’s 3rd biggest, the home of paella & also the Vatican recognized Holy Grail supposedly used in the Last Supper. All very impressive….

We had an easy day – walked around this nice city and headed out to the beach area on the Med coast for dinner for some authentic paella. Our restaurant was right on the beach and a storm came across that evening – so it was really beautiful watching it. Paella was really good and it was a great atmosphere with the local Saturday night crowd all dining out!

We have just arrived in Barcelona – wow, is it busy and happening. We have only walked around La Rambla this evening, but so many groovy restaurants, bars & shops…it is going to be fun!!

Adios for now……
