When Perfect is the Enemy of Good or Great

I recently wrote an article about the Paradox of Choice, you can see it at the link. In it we talked about there being less choice in the market but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

The Independence of Valencia

One of the things that surprises people on coming to Valencia is the variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and the rest.

Valencia City Area Guide By Whiteboard

I thought I would do a bit of a whiteboard explanation of where in Valencia City it is good to buy property and why. I put it in black and white because it’s a whiteboard right?

So in the video I explain the difference between Ruzafa and Ensanche, talk about the Cabanyal and Malvarrosa and the bit you need to avoid and also the different central areas of Valencia. I also eviscerate the area around Avenida de Francia… a bit.
