 To say that one city is better than another is definitely debatable. I’ve lived most of my life in San Diego, California, but I would not say that it is better than another. So what happens to my opinion when I cross international waters?

                Barcelona is indeed beautiful. The city has so much to offer in regards to shopping, fantastic panoramic views and amazing food. So naturally, I fell in love with Barcelona.

                However, I never thought about how I would feel if I traveled outside of Barcelona for more than a day. I mean, do people automatically fall in love with whatever city they visit? Is it a given? Maybe it’s under the rules section in all travel books. Rule number 8: THOU SHALL FALL IN LOVE WITH THE CITY HE/SHE TRAVELS TO.

Well, this past weekend, I got an opportunity to visit Valencia with BIC. I was definitely excited for the trip, but did not realize how much fun I would have. First off, we rode a double decker bus from Barcelona to Valencia. Luckily for me, I love road trips. So the hours stuck in a stiff bus seat were like heaven. Then, I stayed with my friend, Lena, in an air conditioned hotel room with a balcony. We were one of the fortunate ones because not all the rooms included a terrace or even a window to look out of for a view. But we woke up to a beautiful sight and I suppose that’s all that matters, right?

In a few days, I had my answer to whether a person falls in love with every city they visit. For now, take a moment and ask yourself that same question. When it comes down to it, do you find yourself tattooed with the words I heart ?
