Next spring, I will be traveling to Spain for a semester. I had been intending to live in Santiago de Compostela, in the northwestern part of the country. After the disappointing news that KU has just recently cancelled this program, I did some research and found the cancellation was blessing-in-disguise when I stumbled upon Valencia. Anyway, I’m throwing this post up because I really enjoy looking at pictures of places I haven’t seen before, so I hope you will as well. Also, I’d like to make George a bit jealous that he will be sitting in Lawrence, KS while I’m playing fútbol on the white and sandy Mediterranean beaches of Valencia. (UPDATE: Check out the link at the bottom of the page to my own personal pictures from my time in Valencia)

Due to financial problems, construction was haulted, but luckily it has begun again and I’m hoping the Nou Mestalla will be completed by next spring.
