Christmas In Peñiscola

Peñiscola Christmas Trip

Day 1
T’was just before Christmas and the day dawned bright with 45 brave souls, Vall de Pop U3A members, gathered at 10:00am in the car park in Xalo ready for their Christmas trip to Peniscola.
Our first stop was the beautiful city of Valencia, what a wonderful city full of great architecture in the modern style. After a brief lunch it was back on the coach and off to the hotel in Peniscola.
We arrived at the hotel and booked in, then down to the bar for a quick drink before dinner. A buffet meal with copious amounts of wine I seem to recall, and the modus operendi for the holiday had been set!!!
Then back to the bar to join in the entertainment with the rest of the crowd.
