We took the metro into Valencia this morning. It’s always a bit of an adventure using a metro for the first time as they all have their quirks. Our station is the penultimate one, and there are only a couple of trains per hour. We arrived about five minutes early… Read more »

It was grey and overcast first thing this morning, and rather cold with a slight frost. We’d decided that today we would follow the route of El Cid in the direction of Zaragoza, which was recommended to us by the lady in the tourist office yesterday. It was a good… Read more »
