#5. Playa Malvarossa Beach, Valencia(Our original blog: http://www.chuckandlori.com/2014/07/playa-malvarrosa-beach-valencia-spain.html)
We spent the entire month of July in Valencia, and at least a couple of times a week we hopped on the tram and headed out to Playa Malvarossa, the ultra-wide, miles-long beach that stretches north from Valencia's port. We'd rent two chairs and an umbrella for €12 and we'd spend the whole day sunning, people-watching, cooling off in the Mediterranean, sipping cerveza, reading, watching the cruise ships come and go, doing a little work or writing, and generally enjoying the sea, sun, and sand. After a day at the beach, we'd stop in for tapas and sangria at one of the many bars or restaurants along the beach. It was that time on Valencia's beach that made us wonder why we've spent so much of our lives apart, chasing careers, and it was on that beach that we decided we weren't going to do that anymore.
