Our Spanish Vacation

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Today marks two weeks since Balazs and I got back home from Spain. So, last night I went through all the photos from the trip and chose a bunch that you might like to see. This time around we stayed in Oliva - a super small little Spanish town with the most beautiful traditional streets and architecture. It's a place to relax, slow down, get to know the locals and enjoy the perks of the Mediterranean seaside at your doorstep.

Besides Oliva itself, we also explored Valencia and its nearby communities like Cullera, Gandia and Alicante. But besides amazingly fresh fish dinners with mesmerizing views, salty air, huge cacti on every corner, my highlight of the whole trip was seeing orange trees literally everywhere we went...















Have you been to Spain? Where did you stay?

P.S: Remember this epic wine battle, also in Spain?
P.P.S: Where would you go?

Dream of a trip Diana. I have Spain on my bucket list. I ave a quick question for future, did you rent a holiday apartment or stayed in a hotel? Jill

Beautiful photos! It's always nice to see snippets of your own life in the blog. I'm going to Spain on Friday actually to visit Jorge's family in Tenerife. I've been quite a few times now, usually to Tenerife but also to Costa Brava, another of the Canary Islands called La Gomera and Barcelona. All very different, all lovely ��

Hi Diana! Very cool pics! I've never been to Oliva or Alicante, but I've been to Valencia a lot. Did you drink "agua de Valencia" :P? I love it! Better than sangria, ha, ha. What about horchata de chufa? It's not the same horchata made in South America, in Valencia they don't use rice but tiger nuts. If you ever come to Barna, let me know and I'll send you some tips!

I lived in Spain for almost a year! I studied abroad in Alicante and Madrid, but I've been back to visit Valencia. I love the whole country, all of it! Thank you for sharing...my heart aches to go back. I really recommend checking out Galicia, it's totally different from the rest of Spain, with its Celtic history. Literally pulled up flights/ticket prices the moment I clicked on this post! <3 Thanks, Diana!

B, oh yes, the wine is something else! We had a glass each night with our dinner. I heard from a friend that Málaga is a stunning city.

How did I miss this? Looks amazing! I was in Spain 11 years ago for spring break while studying abroad in Rome. Hit places all over the country including Valencia for the start of the Fallas festival, which was pretty amazing. http://www.visitvalencia.com/en/whats-on-offer-valencia/festivities/the-fallas
