First trip without parents, Julia, Kay & I. Can honestly say that it has ignited my passion to travel, with friends and independently. I truly just want to gather as many experiences as possible and see what the world has to offer.
Experinced many firsts on our get away. Learnt about the differences in spanish language as I struggled to understand Valencian. Ate new food which I would never contemplate to try at home and saw such breathtaking arhcitecture. Became more aware of personal safety, money, and the necessity of sunblock. None of us came home unscathed, we all peeled.
Valencia was beautiful. The catherdrals were breathtaking. So much so it made me yearn to be religious. They were so grand and ornate that I left them feeling so humbled.
On the other hand, Kay may not have felt humbled after climbing and descending the bell tower. The steep, narrow, spiralling climb was well worth it, as it revealed the full beauty of Valencia sprawled out below us. However Kay paid the price by rapidly developing a fear of heights on the perilous descent.
I couldn't have asked for better companions. We managed a week without the slightest bit of friction and that is quite a good achievement. No friction, just laughter and sun. Our laid-back attitude made the holiday go so smoothly. Leading us to begin planning more trips in the future because this one has proved we are more then capable
