Barcelona – October 2nd & 3rd 2017 Time to hit the road to Barcelona. We had been in the city twice technically but had yet to see any of it, really. We were ready for our stay and couldn’t wait to explore. I had always heard great things about Barcelona. We stayed just out the...

Valencia – September 29th – October 1st 2017 Our days spent outside of Valencia were relaxing and lazy for the most part. A quick walk to the beach was perfect. Only a block away and we arrived at a beautiful beach (apart from that there was no sand almost it was all rocks). The sea...
