Winners Trip 2014 - Valencia



Valencia Diary by David Farmer, Partner

Harnham's top billers in 2013 were rewarded with a luxury trip to Valencia in Spain. A perfect way to celebrate their success...

One of the highlights of my job is to accompany our top billers on international trips to celebrate their success; in 2013, the chosen destination was Valencia in Spain.....

If you’ve never visited Valencia, it’s a great Spanish city – delicious food, sunny weather, a fantastic beach and lively bars.

Our first excursion, and a chance to enjoy the sunshine, was a guided bike tour of the city. It was a wonderful opportunity to take in some of the cultural delights, and reward ourselves at regular intervals with an ice cold beer.

There’s only so much exercise that is acceptable on a trip like this, so it wasn’t too long before we decided to check out some of the bars and clubs of Valencia to see what the nightlife had to offer……and it didn’t disappoint us – from chilled-out bars to vibrant clubs, it gave us everything we needed, including copious opportunities to embarrass ourselves on the dance floor……!

The next morning seemed a fitting time to sample some of Valencia’s legendary tapas; this was followed up later in the evening with a fantastic dining experience at one of Valencia’s 2 Michelin Star restaurants, before once again partying into the night.

Our last day included a stop-off at a seaside restaurant for fresh seafood paella, and a final chance to take in the stunning city sights. A wonderful trip all round!
