Morzine France European Road Trip Winding Down Week 8

We’ve completed our house sit in Morzine France and had an amazing time.  We thought it would be a week of rest and relaxation, but it was far more than that.  We had big plans of spending a week or two to make it back home to Almuñécar, with stops in Montpellier, Girona and more.  But that isn’t how our the final week of our European road trip turned out.

Fantasticable The Most Amazing Zipline Ever France!

The Fantasticable was a kid favorite!  Flying high in the French Alps, above the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse, to Châtel.  The kids soared at almost 100 km/h (60 mph) and 240 meters above ground (790 feet).  Are we nuts for letting our kids do this?

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!

Rollin’ On The River (Sella)

As we’re traveling on our 8-week road trip throughout northern Spain, we figured that it was time to do some river activity.  We’re in the lovely Asturias region of Spain in the town of Arriondas.  And our activity is (drum roll)…canoeing on the Sella river.  We scheduled our trip with a great local company, Frontera Verde.

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!
