Five members of the Spanish Group recently returned from the Valencia region of Spain where we stayed with Jo and Bob Swanton in their new home. We were picked up by Bob from the airport, and, met very enthusiastically by Jo on arrival. Jo had worked out a full and comprehensive itinerary, with visits to Gandia, Valencia, The Jalon Valley and their local area. There was plenty of time to relax, talk, laze in the hot tub and dine out.
Wherever we went in the area, we were greeted warmly by everyone, and were made to feel very welcome. Bob especially, as he had many envious looks, wanting to know how he managed to have 6 females in tow! Jo and Bob have joined the nearest U3A and their Spanish Group (they speak Valenciana, but also Standard Spanish). All too soon we had to return home but with a promise to do it all again next year.
Aqui para el proximo año.
