For 91 Days, we explored sunny Valencia, home of paella and the third-largest city in Spain. We already knew Valencia well… in fact it’s our adopted home, and the place we return to whenever we’re taking a break from traveling. But now, we made an effort to see the city through the eyes of a tourist, visiting the museums and ancient churches, soaking up the sun at the beach, and embarking upon a few excursions outside of the city.

Whether you’re planning your own journey to Valencia, or are just interested in seeing what makes it such a special city, our articles and photographs should help you out.

There’s not a city in the world Jürgen and I know quite so well as Valencia. We lived here for years before starting our travel project, and should there ever come a day we’re ready to settle down, it’s to Valencia that we’ll return. We figured our favorite city on Earth deserved the full attention of our blog, so we spent 91 days seeing the sights as though we were newcomers.
