Hello again from Valencia! This post is basically a gallery of modern part of the city- the outstanding City of Arts and Science...
Our Erasmus trio (me, Natalinka and Sisi) decided to push our Erasmus to the top time in our lives, so we started our trip in coastal city- Valencia. Let’s get started 🙂
The very important thing- We decided to spend all the time on Couchsurfing. It was my first time looking for a local who could host me for free, and showing me his city. And once you are out of applications, it kind of complication and you are dependent on beautiful girls who can find a host for you (much easily 😛 ). That’s how I got to Jesús. I can hardly describe how much I appreciate to stay with him for the first time doing couchsurfing. Jesús guided me and my friends around his home city, chufísima Valencia, and showed me the hidden treasures of Valencia.
Surprisingly, I had also the second host- my Italian friend Gabriel, a guy with a huge heart. At the next day we could talk openly about all kind of topic, including relationships, travelling passion, our studies, etc. Gabriel is the right person if you are doing couchsurfing for the first time as me. He made me passionate about the upcoming travel.
My love, I will take you for a morning walk…
…oh my God, this is a sin! Jamón, jamón ❤
…and Valencian cakes.
Go on, baby. We didn’t came here to eat all the things. Seriously? 💔
