València | Spain

       So after my trip to Gran Canaria last month, I followed it up with a week spent visiting some other friends in Valencia. I had a full 7 days there (not counting travel days), so I got around a lot of places in that time - even though we slept in and almost never went out before midday! This week will be split into 2 posts, the first focussing on the city of Valencia itself, and the second on the Valencian Community, the region of Spain, with some trips to the surrounding area. One of the things I liked a lot about visiting Valencia, is that it isn't as popular with tourists as many other places in Spain, so even though it's a fairly large city, it still feels quiet and calm compared to other places (of course, bearing in mind that I was there in late October, not exactly peak tourism season, and Covid is affecting travel a lot still - see this post for my note about travelling during a pandemic).

Gran Canaria | Spain

      First things first, if you haven't seen the first part of my time in Gran Canaria, specifically a couple of days spent in Las Palmas, and the explanation behind my trip, then you can check it out here. I was on the island for five days, so the last three were spent exploring the island beyond Las Palmas, by renting a car for the weekend, which was surprisingly cheap! So on the morning of my third day, I took it easy while my friend was at work, then we caught a bus to the airport as soon as she was done, to pick up the car from there.

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria | Spain

     Ok, yes, I know it's been a month since my last post, that return to blogging I talked about in August didn't exactly go to plan. But I'm trying to not be so hard on myself for not being productive, when it's been such a weird year. Anyways, I actually have some decent content that I'm feeling inspired to write about again, because I TRAVELLED!
