Daily Wanderlust: a view of the Land of Valencia

Written by on August 26, 2012 in Destinations - 8 Comments

I’ve gotten to do some pretty sweet things in my travels, including off-roading in Spain.

I’m not the biggest fan of (the very British) Benidorm, but put me in a bright yellow Jeep, throw in some awesome people and tell me we are going off-roading and I am sold.

We cruised up, up, up and were gifted with this spectacular view of Benidorm, far below, and the vast Mediterranean Sea.
