The Spain Journal (May 2017) is complete!

I have finally finished posting the journal from the Northern Spain portion of the trip.  This last section talks about Oviedo, Santiago de Compostela and Vigo.  Hope you enjoy it.  If you haven’t read any of the journal, start here. You can read the entire Spanish portion straight through.  (PS  Portugal is coming soon!)

Driving the Northern Coast of Spain

Over two days driving along the north coast, we drove from San Sebastian to Oviedo, stopping overnight in Santillana del Mar.  I know we missed things that we will eventually go back to see, but we did some fun things and learned a lot.  Here are the journals. And I promise, there are lots of pictures! [If you’re new to this trip, you can start here and read from the beginning.]

A Portugal Appetizer

Shortly I will be on my way to Spain and Portugal. I have never been to the part of Spain I am going but I was in Portugal in 2010! To prepare for the coming trip, I went back to 2010 and have posted some pictures and brief comments (my memory is selective at this point!) about Lisbon and Porto. Enjoy this little appetizer of things to come! Click here for Lisbon and here for Porto.
