It was a really cloudy day for our stop in Bilbao but the day was still enjoyable nonetheless. We didn't have a chance to stop but passed the Guggenheim museum along the way to the Casco Viejo - old town area. I felt like one of those ridiculous tourists who becomes trigger happy pointing and clicking at anything that comes along my way. We wandered through old town and sadly I didnt' really listen to the guide's explanation of the Cathedral and spent most of my time with my nose pressed against the shop windows drooling over Spanish made shoes (Campers, Hispanitas, Pikolinos, the list goes on...).
The second stop on our tour was to Castro Urdiales - a cute fishing village/town complete with a gothic style church (and flying buttresses no less). The waterfront area was lined with bar/taverns offering tapas & beverages.
The port itself was located at the suburb area of Getxo. Most of the boats docked here were for personal use and I was pleasantly surprised there were beautiful mansions with manicured gardens overlooking the waterfront.
I'm intrigued as to what the world has to offer. The bizarre, cheesy, breathtaking and absolutely tourist oriented sights are worth pursuing. I don't think I'll ever stop exploring... or travelling. The blog is a quirky take on what unfolds around me. Some entries are factually accurate and others are simply my impressions at the time. I do appreciate comments, corrections and feedback but please do not post a link to your web blog as a correct example of how I should interpret/understand a particular place along my travels.
