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,…

Travelling with toddlers can never be as light as we want. Unfortunately. However, it is a good fortune that nowadays there are lots of useful products on the store which can make the trip run on wheels. I appreciate all the gadgets that make my life easier especially when it…

I would say that Altea is probably one of my favourite towns in Alicante. Only an hour and a half drive south of Valencia it’s a town with a lot of character and relaxed surroundings, quite surprising as it’s only a 15-minute drive away from the vibrant atmosphere of Benidorm.…

This post is long overdue. I have been meaning to write up about our trip to Andorra just after Christmas. This trip didn’t take much planning and it was something that we and our friends have decided at the last minute. The idea came up when I mentioned to my…
