City of Festivals and Celebrations
Imagine for a moment whizzing scooters down orange tree-lined streets, the sound of chatter, laughs and singing from bars and cafes, the beating sun shining off the sparkling clear waters of the Mediterranean and the relaxing sensation as the pads of your feet sink into soft white sand... does it sound too good to be true? Well think again; this is Valencia.
Where to start? With such a small country packed with so many eccentricities? Tea, biscuits, pickle, the Queen, castles, Mr Bean, glorious countryside, Mini Coopers, cider, traditional pubs, old townhouses, Carnaby Street... this island flung on the northern side of Europe has a lot to answer for in terms of popular culture, habits and customs.
