The very first week I was here, I made it a point to walk to school and back to my flat everyday, even though I was not actually going to school. I was really trying to avoid that sickening feeling of being lost on your first day. Also, there are so many different routes and streets to take, and I just wanted to find the quickest! Shorter walk = more time to sleep! Below are some of my favorite sites along my daily 10 minute walk to and from school.

Bicycles can be rented in Valencia for up to one hour of use. Once the hour is up, simply return the bicycle to the nearest stand, which can be found all over the city. A very convenient system for those with long commutes.
