My beautiful sunshine weekend in Valencia……..Paella & Mimosa’s

Last weekend I was lucky enough to enjoy a beautiful weekend in Valencia with The King of Peru. The sun shone we ate a lot, drank the same and I even managed a personal shop for a friend with a little extra for me (oops)

We flew with Ryanair and whilst I was a little apprehensive it was a great flight with good service. What more do you need on a flight that is a little over two hours than pringles and a gin & tonic.

We stayed at Hotel Ingles which is situated right in the centre and is within easy walking distance of everything we needed.

Hola from Peru 6th Instalment | Travel to South America | Lima, Peru|

The last few days have been fairly chilled after the bites and the bad stomach I caught a cold!! A couple of flu tablets and an early night and it appears to be on the mend. The view from the balcony first thing yesterday is enough to make anyone feel better about anything, it is gorgeous.

The sun has been shining for the last two days after a couple of grey ones so I have managed a couple of beach sessions. Someone who shall remain nameless (King of Peru) used the zoom on the camera to sneak a photo of me on the beach yesterday!! Dangerous things zoom lenses!!

We started today with a Mimosa in our favourite place La Tiendecita Blanca, not a bad way to start a day in the sunshine. It is also the place to eat Lomo Saltado which is my all time favourite Peruvian dish.

Then it was off to the beach, no sneaky photos today, but I did love the pink and yellow bikini from Victoria Secrets that I wore. I am definitely beginning to catch a good colour now, the factor 15 may be replaced soon.

I am always delighted when I come to Lima and find a hidden treasure and today it is Velvet maxi dress which goes great with these turquoise Sam Edelman Gigi sandals. I have just noticed that sandals go nicely with the cushion!!!


Views from the balcony, hello sunshine

The colours of the cushion are reflected in the flowers outside, gorgeous.
