Valencia en route to Rome

Happy Christmas, Gentle Reader! Amy and I are having another dream vacation in Rome this Christmas, but before we publish our cartload of Roman holiday photos, I thought you’d enjoy seeing the photos Amy took in Valencia the day we left Spain (first time in three months *sniff) and flew to Rome.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love Valencia, but I also utterly loathe it. In fact, I spend most of my free time searching for ways Amy and I can travel around Europe while avoiding flights through Valencia. It’s crowded. It’s enormous. It’s noisy. It’s stressful. AND, they speak Valenciano first, Castiliano second. That’s a totally different language, people! So, I usually end up clinging to Amy’s small person like a human barnacle.

Luckily for Valencia, it’s an absolutely beautiful city with a culture all its own. Take a look.

Stay tuned! Rome is on the way.

Best,

Kate and Amy, SL
