The coast of Galicia was made for walking. In the last blog we said that this part of Galicia was not as pretty or dramatic as further south. Well, it isn´t pretty but it is very dramatic. The coastal scenery is wild, with ragged rocky outcrops and huge sandy bays backed by pine forest and gorse uplands. It is very beautiful. When we drove here in the drizzle we couldn´t appreciate it much. To see the beauty of the coast one needs to get out of the car and walk the coastal paths. Then it is possible to appreciate the scenery.
We have enjoyed two days here and tomorrow we are leaving Galicia and heading east into Asturias. Galicia really is a shining jewel in Spain´s crown. A place worth coming back to and we shall.
We are calling ourselves "Iberian Pikeys" for this blog because it is about travel in Spain with a caravan. We haven´t written a blog since the Pensiongapper blog written in 2008/2009 on our round the world trip, despite having visited many interesting places in the last four years. We have now decided to resume the habit of blog writing. It is so good to look back at blogs when memory fails!... full info
