Valencia, Spain

Laziest. Travelers. Ever.

Being lazy in Valencia, Spain.

Our next two days in Valencia pretty much revolved around shopping and food. We headed to a couple of markets and went all around town trying to find clothes and gear that might withstand getting pummeled by tomatoes (really, our biggest/only reason for meeting up in Valencia was to go to La Tomatina, the world’s biggest tomato fight).

And we ate a lot of food. Totally un-Spanish food…

Pretty much, we are the laziest travelers ever.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    We weren’t lazy, we were traveling slow & soaking up the culture…or something like that…

    Great pictures Val. Like Ali said, soaking of culture; not laziness. Siesta is totally Spanish, even if it lasts for 3 days.
