RG is a lot cheaper than Wimbledon, and it's easy to travel between London and Paris. Plus the timing is great - the first Monday of the tournament is a national holiday over here, paid day off work. But if I don't get tickets in the ballot, Barcelona will be my back up as my boss is going to South Africa during the Valencia tournament. Though I am job hunting and maybe I will have a new position by then so Valencia could be put back on the table. *fingers crossed*
Barcelona. Barcelona, Barcelona, Barcelona.
That city is completely wonderful.
I was there for like, two days and I immediately fell in love with it. You HAVE to go there.
Valencia is not that great. I was there for a week and we were like "Uhm... so this is it?" and it's not as pretty as they make it seem... I mean, sure as hell it's a great place to be and really nice, very Spanish you know, but I don't know, maybe I had higher expectations. I found (and still do) Alicante and Barcelona way more beautiful.
