It’s tough but somebody’s got to do it!!

June 5, 2011

Please find recent photos from a conference I attended at the Hotel Las Arenas in Valencia recently in May. I can highly reccommend Valencia, the hotel, etc. It was the fist time I’d stayed in the city (only passed through the airport previously en route further south) and you couldn’t fail to be impressed – great architecture; long, tree lined boulevards, excellent restaurants and all beautifully blended into the industrial infrastructure and port area. Pretty clean also as these pictures testify for Spain’s third largest city!

If anyone has been to Barcelona and seen their man made beach, constructed as part of the redevelopment of the seafront area for the 1992 Olympics? Well take a look at the pictures of the beach at Valencia – it’s next to the port and right in the heart of the city. 

They were all taken either from or close to the hotel which is right on the beach front. But as you can see you still have a bit of a walk to the sea. They’re stunningly beautiful – look at the colour of the deep blue, azure sky. The shimmering Mediterranean could be so close you could almost reach out and touch it. 

Hope you all appreciate them and feel inspired to visit. If your employers are looking for ideas of where to run a conference – you heard it here first!
