We had booked a vacation rental in the village of Polop, located in the mountains of Alicante... so how did we end up spending the weekend in nearby Finestrat?
The pandemic’s restrictions on travel obviously haven’t been a lot of fun, but there have been some good aspects. Mike and I spend a huge amount of time on the road, so usually, when we’re back home in Valencia, all we want to do is stay in one place.
On the last few days of Fallas, once all the figures have been erected, you got roughly 4 days to see as many figures as possible. As mentioned before there are roughly 800 of them (split up half in a kids figures and the main figures) and it's impossible to see them all. Of course we had to wonder if someone attempted to see them all.
I was only in Barcelona for ten hours, during a recent trip to take care of some paperwork, but couldn't resist the opportunity to check out the Sagrada Familia. This was my first visit to one of the world's most remarkable buildings, which is faintly embarrassing, having lived in nearby Valencia for so long
I few days ago, I spent ten hours in Barcelona. The main reason was to take care of some paperwork, but I decided to combine this administrative task with some fun as well. So if you find yourself with time to kill in Barcelona, this post is for you.
