Where I stayed
The one thing to do in Valencia I guess is to go to the Arts and Science Museum Man that place was a lot of fun, unfortunately we only got 2 hours in there so we had to rush through a lot
Food in Valencia was very nice...home of paella! We only had one though since they were a little expensive but it was good! Was a little salty but the lemon made all the difference =D. Had a mojito too in Valencia...mmm so refreshing! and minty =P. Unfortunately, there were no oranges in Valencia, well, at least they didn't advertise it as much as thought they might. The only thing there was Agua de Valencia (water of Valencia) which was a drink with vodka and orange or something...a chick's drink aparently. We did a tapas tour on our second day and it was kinda cool, the tapas weren't the most original but they were cheap and you get free drinks so we went. The company was quite cool, we had a group of like 12 Australians, 1 Greek and our guide who was French-Canadian haha...so yeah very Australian but it was fun comparing stories and hearing about all these other places.
So yeah, that's Valencia, we only had 2 nights there so we didn't get up to too much, the city is very nice though as are the people. The refreshing seabreeze is also a welcome relief after the heat in Madrid =P. But yeah, I'd definitely recommend Valencia and I wouldn't mind coming back haha, just to see the science museum again =P and check out the beach =D
