Last weekend I was in Valencia for a much needed, long overdue weekend away with five of my bestest girlfriends. We have known each other for years, have been there through the highs and lows the laughs and tears but mostly we have just laughed and laughed and laughed.
We are an eclectic bunch, a real mish mash of personalities and although we don't get together as often as we really should due to family/work commitments, when we do get together we slot back into place like bacon into a butty.
We met at Gatwick and after much faffing going through security (someone, ahem) had to much make up, products, not enough plastic bags and then we were through!! Someone (ahem) had to be called for the flight as was getting just a "little" carried away in duty free. A little lesson to be learnt here, we were flying easyjet (so no flatbeds, champagne or molton brown products, tee hee) and at the gate a well dressed business women was having "words" about putting her handbag into her case. As she walked off, she mumbled the word "bitch" under her breathe and was hauled off the flight for abusing the check in staff!
We landed in Valenica and arrived at our gorgeous pied a terre (3 beds, 2 bathrooms, lovely exposed brickwork). We had a wee snoozy then pumped up the tunes, titivated and had a drink (or 3) before going out for Tapas at 10pm. We were all a bit giddy and ended up with these:
Before having a SHITE tapas. We then went to a lovely bar before getting home and chatting until 4am.
The next say was Saturday and feeling rather tender (ahem, sick) headed off to the beach for a paella. But not before we did a bit of shoe shopping (guess who?!). There are SO many restaurants to choose from on the beach that try and get a recommendation if you can. The paella was OK, the service was SHITE and by this stage we were giggling like loons at the appalling food experiences we were having.
We hung out on the beach for a bit, playing the ridiculously childish but highly amusing game of "YOURS". It was just so, so lovely to hang in the sun, gossip and laugh!
That evening the pressure was on to find an amazing restaurant and we struck gold by going to Tacita which was an absolute delight that I can highly recommend! We headed home around 2ish (I think!) for more late night chats and crazy dancing!
Sadly, the weekend went all to quickly and we flew back to normality on Sunday, I had an amazing time and feel so lucky to have such loving, caring wonderful friends!
Until next time amigos!!!!
Love and Peace
