After our classes in AIP and a few rounds of Kahoot, we had the entire evening free. We all headed to ‘The Good Burger’ for our lunch and had a chat and a laugh, we all enjoyed a burger and a refreshing Ice-cream. After that, Leena decided to head into the city centre to do some shopping and get some food.
Iseult and Ione were tired after the classes and really wanted to chillax on the beach, they headed out to the beach on the tranvia and spent the afternoon catching the sun’s rays and the sea’s waves! I headed out the Bonaire shopping centre with some other students from AIP. A lot of them wanted to go to Primark (Penneys) but there is no Primark in the city centre of Valencia. The nearest one is out beside the Airport in the Bonaire Shopping Centre. My teacher told me that Bonaire’ gets its name from the ‘Good Air’ or fresh breeze which blows through the area. We got the metro to the city centre where we then caught the metrobus out to the shopping centre, the journey only took about 15 minutes. We arrived and quickly found the Primark and went our separate ways to get some shopping done. I bought a pair of shorts and met back up with the others afterwards.
We felt peckish and so went and got ‘Horchata’ and ‘tapas’ upstairs in the food hall area. Valencia is famous for ‘Horchata’ which is a nutty drink, something similar to almond milk. I don’t like the store bought horchata because it is very sweet but the horchata here in Valencia is delicious! It is traditionally drank with ‘fartones’ which are long pastries, also delicious! Afterwards, we explored the rest of the shopping centre and picked up some more items. We headed back to the bus stop and after a short hop on the bus, made our way back to the nearest metro station where we caught the train back to Benimaclet. The girls also had a nice evening and enjoyed having time to fit in some shopping and relaxing.
