Sadly, our time was up in Pego, so after numerous tearful goodbyes we hit the road in search of Valencia. We were lucky enough to arrive right when they were in the middle of a week-long Fiesta. We checked into the hotel and went straight into the town centre and bought up all the bunyols and churros. Yummm
The Fire Fiestival was rather unusual… all over the Valencia region they work on massive papier mache structures for a year (which cost a mint) and then set them all alight on the same night. Rather impressive to say the least.
MTV Winter was also on so we checked out My Chemical Romance and Groove Armada
A beautiful and vibrant city; well that’s if you can pay for anything!! HSBC decided to cancel our cards and reissue new ones (to our UK address) while we were away so we officially had access to zero funds. Not impressed!! We were literally down to our last 20c when we finally had access money again. Lucky!!
We strolled around the streets and checked out the impressive Gaudi creations.
Casa Batllo was unbelievable. It felt like you were in another world walking through the numerous rooms each different and just as remarkable.
Afterwards the heavens decided to open and we got drenched! At least this time we could afford to sit in a café and drink espressos.
This is our last stop in Spain. Can’t wait to come back again
