After hitting up Mercado Central, we went to La Lonja, which you’ll see is a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. Impressive hardly seems like it does the building justice. While it’s not particularly interesting, per say (I think we were there all of 15 minutes), the design and size of the building is really just…impressive. The columns reaching up to the ceiling as you enter the building, as well as the detail in the doorways and gold ceiling in the second room really are worth craning your neck to look at it all.
This last weekend I went on a fairly last minute, definitely not planned trip to Valencia. If you’re not entirely sure where that is, it’s about 2.5 hours from Madrid, on the east coast of Spain, on the western edge of the Mediterranean sea. Also the third biggest city in Spain and pretty much everything anyone could ever want for a mini getaway. Meaning: all us North Americans were pleasantly thrilled by the fact that we were wearing shorts and t-shirts and hanging out at the beach on the first weekend of November. Things we don’t normally get to do back home.
