love little life hacks, this includes making lists. I write all my ideas and well… basically everything I have to remember, down. In that way I don’t have to think about a hundred things at the same time. Monkey mind? No thanks. 

Since we’ve been living here for quite a while, we’ve had some friends and family coming over to visit us (great excuse to enjoy this beautiful city, peeps). We obviously get a lot of questions about what to do, where to eat, which parts of the city they definitely should see etc. We both really enjoy going with the flow and see what happens, but when people come to visit, you do want to show them around.
I usually black out, there are so many things to share but my mind always decides to go blank in that moment. Wonderful. Luckily, we don’t have to rely on the abilities of our brains only. One of the reasons why we started this website is because we’ve explored so many great things in Valencia, that we wanted to share that with other people. 

Lists, lists, lists

Now, you can probably feel it coming… here’s the big news: I made a few lists. Categorized, public lists on Google Maps. This fills me with pleasure. 
You can find lists with restaurants/bars/cafes, beautiful places in and around Valencia, activities, take-aways, shops/boutiques, and indoor markets. The restaurants/bars/cafes and take-away lists are categorized by areas.

For example, if you’re looking for a cozy, Italian restaurant with great pasta in Ruzafa, just check the list: bars/cafes/restaurants in Ruzafa. I’ve written a short description under every place so you have a quick overview and you know what to expect.

These are all places we’ve been to, so we’ve done the testing (and boy, do I love these kinds of tests). 

I want to make your life even easier today by listing some of the links down below. If you’re lazy, you’re probably doing a happy dance now.
To check all the lists, click on this link, it will direct you to my profile. Scroll down and you’ll find them: https://goo.gl/maps/F6rLefjymkJJ7SvZ6
We’ll keep updating the lists!

Friend’s opinions

If you want more detailed information, like to hear about our opinions and fun experiences, then, of course, read our articles. We will include all contact details and google links there as well. 

I hope this quick overview has made your life easy again.  It certainly helps me when my mind decides to stop working again. 

Hurray for the internet, hurray for Google. Hurray for… having friends in Valencia ;-)

Un abrazo,
