Posts about events, places in and around the region of Valencia, Spain.

Believe it or not, Valencia offers a lot more than glorious sunshine and amazing beaches. Similar to its sister cities of Madrid and Barcelona, art and culture are firmly ingrained in Valencia’s history.From the Muslim fortress of Almudín, the Fallas museum, to the impressive Gothic architecture of The Silk Exchange,…

Spains first water park was introduced back in 1985. Since then, it has grown to be a favourite summer hotspot for the family and fun lovers during the weekends and holidays. During the months of June to August, Valencia can get very hot an humid. So it’s not surprising that…

In the past decade, many cat cafés have opened all over the world and as a cat lover myself, I am pleased to tell you that the first cat cafe has finally arrived in Valencia, Spain! Did you know that the cat café concept originally started in Taiwan? Many Taiwanese love cats,…

I really couldn’t stand it anymore. I ran out of some decent Asian ingredients over 6 months ago and some things you just can’t buy in Carrefour! I was really missing some ingredients in my weekly cooking, such as; coconut vinegar, a decent bottle of soy sauce (that didn’t cost…

Just over a week ago we celebrated my husband’s birthday, with family coming over too, it was a great excuse to try something other than paella! Don’t get me wrong, I like the stuff, but it’s also nice to try something different other than Spanish food once in a while!…

The more I visit Valencia the more I fall in love with the place. So it was no brainer when my husband and I decided to take another weekend break just 30 minutes drive from our home. I tend to visit the city often, but not to sightsee. I guess…

Over the weekend, we found ourselves child-free, thanks to my in-laws who came to visit last week from the UK. They kindly offered to take the children off our hands so that my husband and I can spend a little alone time together. 😉 We didn’t waste any time organising…

This 30 second timelapse video of Valencia hows you a little glimpse of this beautiful city, a place with a combination of traditions and modern architecture, from the rice fields of Albufera, beaches, Arts & Sciences,  port and of course the famous Fallas festival. Post by Comunitat Valenciana.

Yesterday was a day full of surprises, the husband and I planned a little day out for the boys to the Oceanografic Valencia. This year, we haven’t really ventured to any theme parks or attractions and have been enjoying a slow paced and fun filled summer without having to spend a…

The stress of work have been taking over our lives lately, for the past few months, it seems like that the husband and I hardly have time to do anything together. I guess one of the best things about living in Spain is that we do have a social life and…

While staying at home and spending time with the family on Christmas is always lovely,  it can be exciting to spend Christmas abroad.  We consider ourselves lucky to be able to celebrate the holidays interpreted by a different culture. Having experienced Christmas in the Philippines it is very much similar…

I’m not the one to pass an invitation to go to Valencia City. On Tuesday morning we took to trip to The Central Market, this was my second time (without the kids) so I was looking forward having my own time. Oh, life’s’ little pleasures! But first, the important things.…

It’s bad enough missing the odd proper sausage sandwich and roast dinners from England, but being brought up in the Philippines until the age of 10 I still had the desire for a wide variety of Oriental foods. Large cities in the UK such as London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds…

If you are traveling to or are considering moving to Valencia, you certainly want to research the area you are moving to. If you have children, particularly, it’s important that the area you move to has a variety of fun activities for the children and the whole family. If you…
