A Day Of Fun Traveling From Santander to La Rioja Spain

Continuing on with our 8 week summer road trip, Alan requested the Guggenheim-Bilbao be included in our travels.  See, I do let the family contribute!  While we didn’t have plans to stay directly in Bilbao, I knew we would be passing on our travel day from Santander to La Rioja.  It was going to be a short 2 hour drive and Bilbao would be just about half way.  So let the travel day begin!

It’s Time To Visit Asturias, Get A Taste Of Northern Spain

When anyone mentions Northern Spain, Asturias immediately comes to my mind.  If nature is what you are looking for, the mountains are blanketed with green trees, sprinkled with rambling rivers.  All of which kiss the coast and create gorgeous beaches and postcard photos.  You can experience extreme adrenaline sports or just a float along the river.  Of course you will want to eat and drink your way around the area as well.  Don’t let its size fool you, Asturias is a small, but power packed autonomous community in Spain.  Come along with us and Visit Asturias!
