Valencia has way too many holidays to keep track of all of them. It feels like you could celebrate something everyday if you wanted to. Despite the chaos of holidays, this weekend is a pretty large Valencian holiday. So, we started this holiday weekend off correctly with tapas, fireworks and friends.
We went to Tanto Monta (Carrer del Poeta Artola, 19, 46021 Valencia) for tapas and it was incredible! Even though there are plenty of places in Valencia that serve tapas, we went here because it was one of local’s favorite places. He has lived in the area for a while, which is why we decided to trust him. Whew, was he right. These tapas were delicious! We did have a fun time trying to guess what was in each of them since we didn’t know ourselves.
After a lot of laughter and a lot of food, we headed over to the Turia to see the amazing firework display. Since the show started at midnight, by the time the fireworks had ended, I was well ready for a wonderful night of sleep.
Adventure Lesson Learned: Fireworks seem (are) louder in Spain.
