December 2005 I made a day trip from Barcelona to Valencia to visit the City of Arts and Sciences. I spent the remainder of the afternoon walking around the old centre of Valencia, which was quite nice and gritty and I regretted that I had to take the high speed train back to Barcelona early in the evening. I'm well aware that these photos don't do justice to the city. Maybe one day I'll go back to spend some more time around town.

I regret not buying one of those brooms. They are so cute. I haven't seen them anywhere else.

I travelled to Valencia to see the City of Arts and Sciences by Santiago Calatrava, which is pretty but also pretty over the top.
