Hi, How Are You? I’m Going to Live in Valencia Pt. 3

by David Davies on March 28, 2010

Sorry for the delay guys, been partying! Fallas is Valencia’s biggest festival. It’s bigger than Christmas and lasts for four days, day and night. Fallas is all about big cork statues in the street (called Ninots) and fireworks. This video runs from midnight to two in the morning – and that’s just the start of the party!

Hi, How Are You? I’m Going to Live in Valencia Pt. 1

by David Davies on January 26, 2010

Hi everyone,

Profile Picture.jpg

My name is Alex. As of next week, I will have moved from my favourite place in the entire world, London (and that’s no joke) to Valencia for a few months abroad, pursuing my dreams and the sun.

As I go, I’ll be jotting down things I see, people I meet etc. I won’t actually be sticking them to paper – I’d need large sheets and it’s not cost-effective. Having said that, I might stick my oar in on a couple of free-to-enter competitions.

If you’re interested, you should follow my exploits on Twitter too, @bobdollop.

Anyway, as my mate once said to me, ‘Me dog could whistle cold air faster than’oo finish sentences.’

This goes out to Raoul Duke – I’m coming!

Nothing Toulouse: Part 5

by David DaviesDecember 21, 2009 Nothing Tolouse

Me and Gemma had heard there’d be a strike.
‘Over what?’ we asked Will.
‘What… just… agriculture?’
Quite what the strike entailed, nobody seemed to know, though apparently strikes in France are booked further in advance than Christmas holidays, because a full police presence mingled with no small amount of traffic re-routing ensured the day of the Agriculture [...]

Nothing Toulouse: Part 4

by David DaviesNovember 26, 2009 Nothing Tolouse

There is one thing the French are particularly adept at: entitlement. The sound of a Frenchman in a traffic jam is the sound of a Frenchman leaning on his horn. Columns and columns of cars, a symphonic cacophony of irate indignation. The horns say: how dare I be kept waiting on this ring road, which, [...]
