Travel Blogs from Valencia
Today was mostly a driving day. We were feeling pretty tired from all of the traveling and we had a 3 hour drive in front of us. And to top it off, the drive was very boring. It was like a slightly greener version of driving from Tucson to Phoenix. And the whole time we had trouble keeping a radio station for more than a song and a half …
