Vagobond in Valencia

Vagobond in Valencia

It was nice of the saints to pose with me for this picture in the Cathedral, don’t you think?

Here I am in Valencia, Spain and while it is a beautiful city, I have to say that it doesn’t have that incredible something I felt in Barcelona. Of course, I leave many friends behind in Barcelona and here I am just another guy staying at a hostel, in this case the Red Nest, which is quite a nice hostel with free wi-fi, reasonable laundry, and lots of couches and common space.  For your visit, here is a complete list of hotels in Valencia with thousands of reviews and multi site price comparison.

At first glance, Valencia feels more manufactured, manicured, and created for tourists than the raw excitement I felt in BCN, but there is more to this city than meets the eye. There is a difference in the graffiti, the architecture, and the people that I can’t quite been able to place my finger on.  It surely has many wonders that I am missing.

Today I managed to get lost several times walking through the center of the city. I also visited the cathedral and climbed the steps to the tower for stunning views.

One thing in the Cathedral was the Holy Grail! I didn’t know it existed…so much for the stupid fucking Davinchi Code…
