By this point in my travels I am quite bored with the generic questions of “Where are you from?” and “What you are doing in Europe?” and am much more interested in the information that can be classified as an outlier. I want something that is actually interesting, something that is different from the thousands of people that I have met before you.
After the day, I am glowing with happiness. I could not think of a better way to spend a day and, by this point, I am a bit exhausted and just ready for bed. But, as I walk towards my room, two beautiful girls ask me out for drinks. Damn. So, I can go to bed or I can hang out with two seemingly fun girls and drink – hmmmm.
Bruges, Belgium is a pretty cool city that seems like it was frozen in time, because it kind of was. The city has remained so similar to what it was hundreds of years ago largely because of the fact that its main economic driver, its river, started to fill-in. As such, people left and people didn’t have as much money to change the city with the times.
This is what I find to be the most interesting thing about the city…
After a good sleep, it’s time for a free-walking-tour of the city. I just love these tours because you get to see enough of the city to get a feel for it and its history as well as getting a bearing on your surroundings.
The tour is great and the city of Valencia is just wonderful. The whole city seems to be straight out of a Spanish fairy-tale.
This is the first part of a 7 part post describing a day in Valencia, Spain. I hope you enjoy!
I’m not sure if I am running from something or simply entertaining my desire to find out what this city is really like.
I always find the train ride that takes me away from one place and toward another to be an almost cathartic experience.
Learn the 4 steps you can take to save thousands of dollars on your European vacation! These are 4 tips that I follow and I think some of them might surprise you.
Every major European city will have free tours of the city that are fun and informative. The problem is that you probably don’t know about them. I didn’t even know about these tours until the first time that I stayed in a hostel.
Here, I’ll tell you how these tours work, why I like them, and how to find out about them.
My worst hostel experience. This was also the first time I ever stayed in a hostel and I can’t believe I stayed in another one after this experience.
