Valencia, in pictures…. .

Argh!  I’ve been suffering from Blog stress this last week.  I’ve been trying to upload this blog post for the past six days when we have managed to pick up some free wifi but the photos just wouldn’t load up.  I’ve faffed and fiddled and faffed some more to no avail so thought I’d leave it for a few days and hope the glitch sorted itself out.  Today I have had some success and have managed to get some of the pictures uploaded.  Yay!  I haven’t been able to load up the ones taken in portrait so lot’s are missing but hey ho.

On Saturday 24th September 2016 we took the cheap as chips bus into the centre of Valencia direct from just over the road from the aire.  At €3.00 each return it was a bargain.  We found the Tourist Information office just around the corner from the bus stop to pick up a map of the city.  The very helpful chap behind the desk suggested a walking tour of the city which takes in most of the ‘must see’ monuments.

The gentle stroll, including a picnic in one of the parks, took us nearly four hours and was a good way to get our bearings around the old town.  We’ve hugely enjoyed our little sojourn in Valencia but two days of city life is enough for us so, after waking up to a beautiful sunrise through the bedroom window on Sunday, we set off a further fifty or so kilometres south to Dènia, a seaside resort on the coast.

My battery is now flat so I’ll upload this whilst i can!

Adios!
