Here are some photos from our adventure in Valencia, where we had an absolute blast eating and learning to cook the best paella (it’s true, you’ll need to taste Chef Mateu‘s masterpiece in order to believe it), watched a basketball game, met some of the best people, shopped, danced with sharks at their amazing aquarium, hung out with 2 of Valencia players - Jordi Alba and Vicente – at the car park (how convenient that the press exit is a common one) and were asked by the guys if we were a ‘chica Valenciana’. Well, the truth is we’d love to be one anyway! Jaja.
If you’re considering a visit to Spain, you MUST visit Valencia. I know everybody talks about Madrid and Barcelona, but it’s a huge loss if you don’t get to experience the life (and nightlife) in Valencia. They may have a small population, but they’re probably the closest to being the most ‘Latin American’ of Europe. Their people and culture are just different, and you’ll get to feel it for yourself.
I’d also like to thank Miguel Perez from the Valencian Tourism Board who brought me around Valencia and is a die-hard Los Che and whom I know is secretly (highly) annoyed with me for not writing much about his club (“Barca, Real, Barca, Real… there’s more than that!”) . But I promise to from today… especially since telling all of you about the guapos there. And it’s the truth, ladies!
