Holidays


#661

Valencia? I have a place in Port Saplaya just outside the city on the coast. You can walk to the Malva Rosa across the beaches from there.


#662

Get you :grinning:

Can’t wait - first time visit so really looking forward to as it looks amazing.


#663

we’re planning to visit Valencia next year for a few days.


#664

Have to say that was a superb few days in Valencia. Great time to visit as it was in the 30’s all week - so nice to get decent heat in the old bones this late in the year.

Excellent food and drink (they do like their morning beers) and we had one the best rib-eye steaks we’ve tasted in the Jamon del Medio Tapas bar along from the hotel in the Avinguda De Navarro Reverter.

Definitely be back as we only really scratched the surface and looks a very good base to travel to other parts of Southern Spain.


#665

Off to Italy at start of November for Kay’s 50th. Long weekend in Rome and then 3 days in Venice.
Said she could go anywhere but she chose Italy again, I’m not complaining though.
Looking forward to venice in winter. Last time I was there was summer '86.

Crappy phone pics but Oceanografic Valencia is a must - the shark tank is tremendous

This bad boy must have been about at least 8 feet long absolutely amazing feeling as it swims over you in the observation tunnel
