Valencia is a short flight from Eindhoven (the nearest airport from my hometown Tilburg). I thought Valencia should be the perfect destination for a week off in the summer. I stayed at a hostel in the Russafa area, which is full of restaurants and shops and is a perfect base to explore the city by foot.
I strolled the old city centre with its cathedral and churches and followed the emptied Turia riverbed that nowadays is a park. In the city of modern arts and sciences with its modern architecture I felt like I was in a futuristic city. With temperatures around 37 degrees celcius, I was boiling after two days. Last three days I took the bus to El Saler to spend my time on the beach and in the Mediterranean sea.
