A Travellerspoint blog

Santander, Castro Urdiales and Bilbao

Some more photos for you all! We have been so busy having a good time that we havnt been able to post very often, so here is a multiple post for the three places mentioned above.

We were lucky enough to snare some sunshine in Santander and visit some of the beautiful beaches there. Since we ventured north we have struck a few days of rain, but I guess you cant have a whole month of perfect weather! Even when it did rain we managed to have a great time as the bars here are so fantastic. We DID find one bar though that has to have a photo posted. Ben was so thrilled to find this place in the middle of Santander old town..... he conjured up the Steve Irwin accent just for this pic
and no....... we did not go and have a fosters!! Instead we walked a few streets over and found this great wine bar. It actually called itself a wine museum. All the walls and the ceiling were covered in really old wine bottles (full of wine!). We managed to have a few glasses aswell :-)

From Santander we travelled along the north coast eastwards to Castro Urdiales. It was a super cute small fishing village. It had some great pincho bars aswell, and we caught a few rays before the rain set in for the night.

We had a great time in Bilbao. Not only did we get to visit the Guggenheim (el goog!) which is an amazing building in a great location, but the city itself was a real surprise. Most people only stay the night and say it is an Industrial town with little to offer, but it is great for walking around and there are some really nice streets and parklands. We took a funicular to the top of a nearby hill and got a great view. Oh yes..... and we also had a fantastic night out in the local plaza which was PACKED with pinchos bars. It was a saturday night and the place was crowded. Lots of Spanish bucks and hens nights seemed to be going on. So here are the pics!
