Valencia, Spain (Caro Hotel, Carrer de l’Almirall)

Wow! A full night’s sleep, and then some. I first woke at about 7:30 a.m., I think, and slept until 9:00. Then got dressed and went down for breakfast. When I returned to my room I slept some more and didn’t wake until 12:45 p.m. Think I’m fully rested now.

Today will be a light tour day. Just want to walk around a little and also make reservation for a Segway ride for tomorrow. The old city here in Valencia is much smaller than Barcelona and everything to see is within a walk of 5 – 15 minutes.

Today, I headed first towards the Segway shop and made reservations for 10:00 tomorrow, then walked over to one of the two surviving (of 12) city gates.

Paddington Bear was her too! 

From there I walked down to the former river bed (river diverted in 1957 due to flooding) where there is a park and walked there and then up to the city again and took various pictures.

 

I found a cafe’ that had a good view and ordered a coffee and a salad.

Took a nap when I returned to my room. Woke up and walked to the Starbucks again and bought a sandwich and a fruit cup for dinner. I wasn’t interested in a big dinner and something quick and easy was fine with me. The salad from earlier filled me up.

Still felt tired. And after I finished with my blog post I watched a little Netflix and went to bed.

Tomorrow is my Segway ride. I’ve scheduled two hours, will probably be the only one on participating on the tour, and the tour will take me down to the City of Arts and Sciences, along the old river bed, and then a tour of the old city.
