Valencia is an amazing city that I knew I’d have to visit during my time living in Spain. When I was browsing at my work schedule and realized I had a long weekend in November, I decided to book a trip to Valencia. Valencia is a great cheap vacation spot for those looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, especially from busier cities like Barcelona or Madrid. If you’d like to know what you should do, see and eat in Valencia, keep reading.
I recently wrote a post discussing my next big step in life: living in a foreign country. At the time of starting this post, I am in Barcelona, Spain. Saying that I’ll be living here still feels surreal. I’ve wanted to go to (and live in) Spain for so long. I joke that the Cheetah Girls 2 movie is what introduced Spain to me, but honestly that may not be far off. Of course I’ve heard of the country before then, but I was introduced to Barcelona and Spain due to that movie.
Thirteen years later, here I am in Barcelona. Crazy, right? Here are my first impressions of the city as well as venting about a stressful day of travel.
Have you ever felt so drawn or connected to something, but you don’t know why? That’s me with Spain. As of writing this post, I have not yet been to Spain, or Europe. But anyone who knows me knows that I have had a love affair with Spain from afar for years. I don’t know what it is about the country. I’ve always loved the Spanish language and Europe has always been a continent I wanted to visit. So I guess Spain has the best of both worlds for me. I have joked that if reincarnation exists, I was Spaniard in a past life.
Until I get over to that side of the world (which will hopefully be soon, fingers crossed and positive vibes sent out into the universe) I spend my time scrolling through Pinterest at the beautiful places I want to visit. Do you love Spain too and need recommendations on where to go? Keep reading. Also, please keep in mind since I have not been to Spain yet these photos are not mine and were all found via Google Images! Included in this post are videos highlighting each city mentioned.
