Strolling Through The Streets of Valencia

10 February 2013By 1 Comment

Our recent roadtrip destination was Valencia, Spain. The plan was to celebrate the New Year in a city where winter is not as cold as in Scandinavia. From Nimes in France, we reached Valencia by the afternoon of 31 December. We had time to rest and sit in the hotel bar before the celebration.

There are a lot of beautiful architectures in Valencia but when I see orange trees in the streets I’d get delighted.

We strolled through the streets a little early and when we got tired we went back to the hotel. Unfortunately, the distance from the hotel to the venue of the celebration was not what we expected. It was a long distance walk.

When we heard fireworks we went out and started walking again but we didn’t bother to go to the venue. We just enjoyed the stroll and admired what we saw.

Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and the Port of Valencia is the largest seaport on the Mediterranean Sea. Hubby and I loved the mild winter there and it was good to be strolling on the clean and quiet streets at night.
