Bad memories of Valencia

Valencia

Personal memories ​Give me the film back!

I arrived in Valencia in an afternoon, in my way to Mallorca, after buying my first camcorder in Andorra, and already with the film of two weeks spent in Salou and Altea.

For security reasons, I had booked a hotel with garage, to leave the car while we would be out, and, for the same reasons we went to diner early in the day, parking close to the restaurant.

Five minutes were enough to the restaurant’s manager tell me that my car was assaulted and the camera… gone.​

I never felt so revolted. Not because the camera itself, but for the memories of my kids’s happiness in their first holidays abroad.

​And so, Valencia became a trauma. Please, don’t tell me it really exists!

​(Fortunately, my wife took some photos, and the smiles were not totally lost. Maybe one day I’ll recover from the trauma, and decide to check if Valencia does really exist.)

Unique Suggestions: The trauma is gone. I made friends in Valencia. I will soon put it back in the map.

Valencia

In a professional trip to Istanbul, I met L. a kind young lady from Valencia that offered me a couple of brochures about the city and showed the kindness and welcoming manners that I’m used to meet in Spain.

OK!

I’m recovered, and Valencia is back to my travel plan.

​​See you soon, L. In Valencia.
