    Traveling While Black

    I just got back from Valencia yesterday with a group of friends from my school and had an amazing time! It is definitely an underrated city. It reminded me a lot of Barcelona but more chill (since it is pretty underrated). As a black female traveler, I had absolutely no issues, surprisingly. I would say that this palace is the most comfortable I have felt.. like I did not get any stares or anything! I think this is because there is a large population of people from other African countries in Valencia. For example, I met people from Nigeria and Senegal in my short time there. I would see black people everywhere I went.
    I went to a club called, Mya Club, and I had a blast! I was surprised to hear up to date R&B and hip-hop music. There were also a lot of other black people there as well. The club had three different levels and there was the perfect mix of music, in my opinion. Each level seemed to be dedicated to a particular genre but still mixed the genres.

    To touch on some of the categories however:
    I stayed at a beautiful pink airbnb. it was the cutest with a wonderful terrace and close to the beach. The link is here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/38117871?adults=10&source_impression_id=p3_1572870170_yndqLVgZc2sGHnrC

    I found the city to be very affordable. The taxis seemed very cheap to me, cheaper than in other cities like Madrid for sure. The metro was also nice and clean and an easy way to get around as well. Because I was coming from Madrid, I took a train, Renfe Ave, which was very fast and easy although it was a bit more pricey.

    For local food, make sure you try the paella! It is truly amazing and there are many good places to get some but one of the most popular places is La Ruia. Also, Casa de Montaña is also a great place to go for some local tapas. It is also very close to the airbnb I mentioned (2 minute walk).

    Amazing city with a lot of history and that also includes food. I had the opportunity to go to great restaurants on the beach front as well as a tapas tour. The tapas tour was phenomenal as you get the history of the city along with the cuisine. Several different types of tapas along with their wine pairing and we ended with dessert wine in a ‘porron’.
    You can’t go to Valencia and not have paella. With this being a coastal city, the seafood paella was fresh and exquisite. A fun exciting city that has history and cuisine to back it up.

    Valencia is gorgeous and I think currently not hyped about enough! I visited 2 summers ago and fell in love with the place.

    For culture, a must visit is the City of Arts and Sciences featuring the Science museum which you can wonder around some parts for free and other art displays and structures around the complex. Also Llotja de la seda which is the silk exchange. Lots of history in the buildings and a chapel. Valencia market is mostly indoors and is perfect for groceries and souvenir shopping. The churches and cathedral are gorgeous too.
    We also enjoyed the archeological museum where you walk through the old ruins and the main Aquarium if that’s your thing. Finally the Tower (Torres de Serrano) has a great view of the city from the top.

    The beach Playa de la Malvarrosa is gorgeous to visit day or evening with lots of activities going on, beach restaurants and bars too.

    For food, anywhere with paella, sangria and churros is a winner!
    We went to High Cube for our nights out which is a floating cube…not sure if it’s open in winter time but worth a visit if so!

    For accomodation, we stayed in airbnb owned by Carlos y Nerea. Nerea is the one who organises your stay and she is so lovely. This was the cleanest and most accommodating Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in!

    Traveling While Black

    Valencia. Spains third largest city and home/origins to the famous Spanish rice dish, PAELLA!
    I stayed here for one week in May 2017. The weather was lovely, not scalding hot but warm enough to show some skin and get a tan!
    The city of Valencia is relatively small compare to its counterparts Madrid and Barcelona. There isn’t as much to do here but that doesn’t take away from it’s rich history and little gems that Valencia has to offer.
    While I was here I managed to watch a football match (that’s soccer, to you Americans lol) even if you aren’t a football match it is still an interesting experience, the tickets aren’t that expensive (Valencia’s football club is not great) but the atmosphere and vibe of the fans and supporters are unforgettable! It is pretty easy to get around Valencia with many buses and metro being the easiest way to get around the city. There are many points of interest in Valencia, the main one being the Ciutat de artes y les ciences. City of arts and sciences, it’s an amazing building with their own science museum, it is a beautiful, modern and very popular tourist attraction and also connects to the beautiful park that runs along a vast amount of the city. Excellent kodak moments!
    There are loads of art galleries both modern and fine art to visit while you’re there and be SURE to try the PAELLA. Personally, I’m not a fan of the meat paella bu tLOVE the seafood one. You can get them pretty cheap if you go a bit further away from the centre of town and they serve them with refreshing Sangrias.

    The night life in Valencia is not one to be missed. The nights out usually start late so it’s always worth hitting up the bars in the centre and doing afew bar hops for pre-drinks before hitting the main clubs. The club I went To MYA was in the ciutat de arts y ciences and it was a huge venue with 3 different rooms. Amazing night out not one to forget! But make sure you know how you’re getting home as public transport stops by 10pm.

    The BEACHES in Valencia are not one to be missed. The whole of Valencia is filled with some of the beast beaches in Europe and are always relaxing, full of sand and plenty restaurants on the promenade to have a lovely lunch or dinner by the sea!!
