Valencia – It's Not All About Oranges!

Valencia – It's Not All About Oranges!, Valencia, Spain (B)

Why Valencia…to eat oranges? Well, not just to eat oranges but mainly to explore this stunning and dynamic medieval city founded by the Romans in 138 BC! 

Actually, also to meet up again with our good friends Wendy, Gordon, and their pooch Cusco. Any excuse for a merry gathering and sharing of travel stories and woes!

After a wonderful 9 days in Cambrils, decided to head Reg down the highway towards Bétera…the new destination for maybe a week or so – no plan really.

Tip: Although there are a couple of campsites closer to Valencia, Bétera is a cheaper alternative as a base and only a 10-minute walk to the train station.

You can expect to see lovely vistas of the Mediterranean Sea for most of the trip as the highway follows the coastline for most of the way. Stopping for coffee between Exits 44 and 45 provides only a small stop with a machine coffee and not that great; nowhere to sit either. Made a mistake. If you stop for a break between these exits, cross the overpass bridge to the other side of the highway as this is where a restaurant and other shops are so may provide a better alternative. ......
