They went on: “Other than participating in ex-pat group events, we have met many great people through our YouTube channel and social media platforms like Instagram.

“We’ve had opportunities to meet many other ex-pats living here, as well as subscribers and other content creators who are living or visiting Valencia.”

Valencia was ranked the number one destination in the world for ex-pats recently in The Expat City Ranking 2020.

Expats represent 13 percent of the population in Valencia, wth over 100,000 non-Spanish natitals living there as of 2019.

They even suggested taking a item of clothing one might not expect to need in the Med.

“Maybe not as cold as the U.K. but, Valencia is colder than most expect,” they went on.

“Waking up mid-January in the morning it’s as low as 1 degree outside.

“So, bring a winter coat, most people here are bundled up in hats, scarves, and maybe even gloves while drinking a beer on a terrace.”
