Mirando: Valencia

Before I get started:  In honor of the End Quote Studio launch, I'm hosting two giveaways this week! Enter here and here.

I spent the weekend in Valencia and it quickly became one of my favorite Spanish cities. Close to the beach, it's got a bit of California vibe. The food and the people are really what tipped the scale. On Saturday night, we went to a little Italian restaurant. The pasta was fresh and our Italian waiter was full of life. For lunch on Sunday, I gorged myself on the best paella I've ever tasted. I wanted to get pictures of the paella in the kitchen and the cooks invited me in, telling me where to stand so I could get the best shots.

I walked up 207 steps for this shot.

Everything fresh at Valencia's market!

Between the architecture and the dolphin show, I'd say this complex is pretty sweet.


Tried a traditional Valencian drink and loved it. Think really sweet nut milk.

Share the love,
