After a few days in Alicante we took a train over to Valencia. Expecting that taking the train would not be to hard to catch we arrived at the station in the morning only to find that we had missed the morning train and the next one was not coming until much later in the afternoon. After a few hours of waiting in the train station and watching a man get arrested for trying to take someone's luggage the train finally arrives and we are off! The hostel we stayed in that night was horrendous. It was like a dungeon room and the only light it had was tinted red, really strange. We walked around the city streets for a while and noticing that Valencia has a very distinct and unpleasant smell. We headed to bed earlier for we had plans of an exciting day the next day. Angela and I woke up decently early and took the bus the Aquarium; Valencia has the largest Aquarium in all of Europe. They claim that Flipper lives at this Aquarium and I did see him! While viewing a bird exhibit within the Aquarium I was also attacked by a bunch of pink flamingo looking birds. It was awful and I have the pics to prove it. I was just taking a picture of them when they attacked. I proceeded to run, bear hug Angela, and be the laughing stock of the bird exhibit while all the Spanish people pointed rolling in laughter. Though I would have laughed at me too if I had not been terrified. We wandered around the Aquarium for a few hours and then headed to the Science Museum that was also part of it. We went back to our hostel and found some delicious dinner at a traditional Spanish restaurant. The next day we did a little more wandering around the city and headed back to Alicante. All in all Valencia is not on my top list of places for me. Maybe it was where we stayed or what we did but I just did not find it very fun. Ohh well.
Love to my friends and family <3
