Wonders of Valencia: Spain - Day 3 + 4

I have to admit, these pictures from Valencia are my favourite from the whole trip. This city has charmed me. Maybe because of the mesmerizing balcony and its view, thanks to which I felt like a girl from cliché and very romantic Hollywood films or the market (Mercat Central de Vàlencia) with amazing food...I cannot express how much I miss paella with artichokes and sweet horchata. And imagine this: The beginning of April and you don't even need to wear a jacket! Despite that, the sea was still super cold, so no swimming for us. We didn't mind actually, we were just excited to be near the sea again. We only quickly wetted our feet in that freezing cold water and took some pictures.

The next day we went on a free walking tour. Our tour guide Miguel was one of the best tour guides in the world - I mean it. You have to love the person, who showes you, where to get food for free.

In Valencia you can find a lot of signs in front of the restaurants which say: "Agua de Valencia" Every time we saw it we thought: "What the hell is so special about the water here?" Well, during the tour we found out. It is no surprise that the alcohol is involved. The drink consists of vodka and fresh orange juice, so nothing new. Good old vodka&juice. However, you need to be careful and find a place, where they are using freshly squeezed orange juice and not the one, which you can buy in the supermarkets.
