Hi everyone, I hope you're well. I'd really be grateful for you help with planning where to take my first holiday in 8yrs!*
I have so many places I'd love to explore and experience but due to the factors that have prohibited me going away for so long, I am very limited and have managed to narrow it down to a few places...kind of!?! Berlin and Amsterdam are in my top 5 because of the incredible history and culture and vibes they offer, but due to a very real need for sun and my physical restrictions I'm feeling that a city like valencia may be better. The huge park/gardens that run through it and all the culture within that, plus the proximity to the beach and cafes etc all really appeal to me.
However, I dont hear many people talking about it and noticed on this forum there's little mention, either. Is anyone familiar and would you recommend it, or would I be better travelling to somewhere else that offers green spaces, water (a river, or coastal or lake) and some culture, plus that is friendly and walkable/relatively uncomplicated and safe to navigate as a lone female. Thank you very much in anticipation. Lu
*Health, huge financial limitations (due to my deteriorating health, much to my shame and sadness, I lost my job), and, of course, covid, have meant travel was not an option. I mention the above because unfortunately they do impact where I can go and what I can do.
