Valencia, Spain - Day 3

Day three we were determined to make the most of our last full day and woke to a scorcher of a day, we hopped on the bus this time taking a different route and hopped off at the Bio Parc, a large expanse of natural flora and fauna and animal park with natural breeding programs and no cages, more purpose built grasslands and habitats.

We spent nearly all day here the gorillas making a big impression - it was lovely to just take time out in the hot sunshine.

Later that day we started to walk back and I got us a little lost so we hopped on the metro to take us back to the old city. We found ourselves sat outside a little Spanish bar and ordered a little jug of sangria. Also a must!

Later that night we decided the last thing to eat on our Spanish break was of course Tapas, most of which was devoured before getting any pictures, roasted ham with paprika, grilled baby squids, spicy red sausages set on fire in alcohol and huge grilled garlic langoustine and a bottle of Spanish Rioja. Such an simple and delicious meal.

After that we came across a little pop up bar and tried a local drink - Agua de la Valencia. Sounds refreshing and very likely to trick you into thinking your drink juice! sparkling wine, fresh Valencian squeezed oranges topped with free poured vodka. Two jugs of this and we were ready for bed and a sore head the next morning.

Nothing to do the following day except a leisurely check out a walk to the metro and soaking up the final rays of sun.

I hope you enjoyed the Valencian photos and blogs!
