MEET YOUR HOST:
My name is Carla and I'm with David and our two kids Roberto (10) and Greta (8). We are originally from Tenerife in Canary Islands, Spain, where yes, you can have a good life with good temperatures the whole year and be close to beaches and mountains at the same time.
We have had a campervan since 2010 but the island was limiting us, so we make the decision to move to the mainland of Spain. Long story short, in July 2018 this plan went out of control, and we ended up in a journey of seeking how we wanted to live. Three months later, the campervan was also limiting us, so we parked it and flew to Thailand to our first worldschooling summit which defined, since then, the way we travel.
We visit places and live for months in different destinations and always look for worldschooling hubs to mix with our family itinerary. We have been to Thailand, Mexico, Escandinavia, Denmark, Greece, Italy, and many other countries of Eastern Europe. We have still a big list of things and places we want to do and visit, While always working towards being able to continue in movement around the globe traveling through cultures.
Valencia is the place where my mum was born. It's a place where I've spent many summers of my childhood and a place I keep coming back because I have a lot of family and friends there. It’s a big, nice city with many things to do and places to see that I can't wait to share while hanging out with other families!
As a family we would love to see you all, the ones that already know, and the ones that we haven't met yet. This pop up will be amazing!!
LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS:
Valencia is a nice city to walk and ride bikes (as it is really flat), so you just walk from one place to another or use bikes or public transport. Activities will be from the Les Tendetes neighborhood in the west to the Oceanographic in the east. There is plenty of accommodation available throughout the center of Valencia.
Look for accommodation near the old channel of Turia, this way you will have green area to walk any time with playgrounds, sport areas, etc. Google it in google maps and have a look, the old channel is full of all sorts of things! (Old Channel of Turia = "Cauce viejo del río Turia" in Spanish). You could also choose to stay close to the beach at the east side of the old channel of Turia and take transport or bikes to go to the centre.
There is campgrounds for campervans, tents and they also have cabins. They are near the coast but well connected by bus to the centre.
The host family will be staying with extended family in an out-of-the-way neighborhood, they will have to transport into the center for pop-up activities (Tavernes Blanques is the name of the neighborhood). Orriols, Nazaret, and Benicalap are other neighborhoods you can avoid.
