4 hours in bus is not a joke. It’s tiring, boring, and many others… That’s what it took us yesterday to come from Barcelona to Valencia since 8:30 in the morning.
I had been told that the paella at Valencia so as we parked the bus and after like a half hour of evacuating my bladder, we went for the famous plate. Totally disappointed i must say. Maybe it was the restaurant at a small alley that looked local that didn’t make it like it should, but it wasn’t that good.
Waking up was the hardest part. After the day before yesterday we kind of drank a bit too much, yet had such a fun time! My roommate and I obviously didn’t wake up at 6:30 am to be ready at 8:30 when we all got to the hotel at 4 am… So, as soon as we understood that the group left us, we took out time to have a decent breakfast and look at the itinerary so we could meet up with the group.
Ok. Seriously: i’m in love with this city. Yesterday was so amazing that i’m about to leave it all behind and stay here (I won’t though, yet…). There is a charm behind every activity you do and just makes you want to fell and see more than is in front of you.
Early morning wake-up. That really gets you tired, yet makes you feel like the day lasts what it should. Our walk started in the Coliseum; the new wonder of the world, and a structure that has a history of being so useful it makes you think about how technology works these days… They could literally fill the arena up with water, the underground didn’t get filled up, and could drain it again in the same day. That just really makes me ponder on what we can do now a days.
Sorry. Yesterday i didn’t have the energy to write; i lost all the pictures from Venice. Long story short; i deleted them because i thought they were already saved. Trying to save get them back yesterday got me so exhaused and bummed out, that i just couldn’t write.
The last day in Florence was probably our only “Lay day”. It started walking to the museum to get to see the David sculpture. It was out only “guided event”. Once we finished we were free to walk around the city (below the sun). It was nice though, it was the perfect time to look for family presents and such, so we went to the market and walked around for a while until lunch time.
Yesterday’s Highlight: Jorge Jiménez Deredia. Probably one of the greatest person to listen to because of wisdom on life, spirituality, architecture and history. He’s been working on marble sculptures that represent our transmutation from phisical to spiritual beings, and centering his studies on the Costarrican indian spheres to try and get our history back. Listening to him makes you rethink about who you are and what you want to do in life, always with a purpose.
Yes. The heat. The heat. Wow, you have no idea about the heat. (Probably you do, i don’t know, but i didn’t). Florence is about history, and about most of the known names you’ve heard about, like the Medici, or you’ve studied about the Renascence and all of their artists. This is Florence.

Woke up to an wonderful sun coming up the buildings of Venice. This is the city I was waiting to visit since the start of this journey. The inconvenient we were to experience was the Sun that shown above. Continue reading “Venice! 9415 Wagon 7 15A “
