I always wanted to see fireworks at Calatrava's City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, imagining how spectacular they must look against the futurist architecture. Turns out, my imagination was spot-on; the fireworks which celebrating the opening of this year's Ninot Exhibition looked just as breathtaking as I had hoped.
The most common depiction of Stockholm is of old brick buildings, cobblestone streets, bridges, and water. Quaint, old-world Nordic realness. And that's definitely true!

2010 was a big year for us, as that's the year we started traveling around the world For 91 Days at a time. But before relocating to Oviedo, our first destination, I had been hired to take pictures at a conference in Stockholm, and also get some shots of the city.

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?
Finally visiting Benimantell and Guadalest - It's hard to believe that we had lived for twelve years in the Valencian Community, without ever having explored the mountain range behind Benidorm, in the province of Alicante.
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.
Magical moments with Les llums de Vivers - Christmas in Valencia, Spain is quite different compared to Germany, where I grew up. Ever since moving here, I've found it difficult to get into the "spirit".
Hold your ears for this antique firework called Engraellat. Valencia has never been lacking ideas on different ways to ignite gunpowder. If you're a longtime reader of our blog, you'll know that the city is an epic center of fireworks.
