Waterpark Adventures, and a Return to Spain!

Jul 15th (Sunday) As I alluded to in my previous post, we were leaving Lisbon early today, as our plan was to hit a waterpark in Faro before continuing on back into Spain.  We got up before 8:00, packed up our stuff, made up a lunch, and hit the road as soon as we finished... Continue Reading →

Sensational Sintra and Lovely Lisboa (Lisbon)

July 12th (Thursday) With our time in Porto at an end, we left as early as possible because we knew we had a long drive ahead of us.  We were headed to Sintra and wanted to spend some time in the old town there before continuing on to Lisbon, or Lisboa in Portuguese.  Leaving around...

Puttering About in Porto

July 9th (Monday) Having spent the previous day familiarising ourselves with Porto, Kitty and I spent the morning and early afternoon catching up with work and writing.  We then took advantage of the lovely weather and spent some time reading down on the bank of the river.  Around 16:30, we headed back to the hostel...

El Camino and Portus Cale (Portugal)!

July 7th (Saturday) Our last morning in Gijon, so we took advantage of it and enjoyed a wonderful sleep in to late morning.  After packing up, giving a test run of Kitty's new backpack, we grabbed a small breakfast and headed out from the city.  It was just over three hours to Santiago de Compostela,...

Blundering about in Bilbao

June 30th (Saturday) After the craziness that was the Haro Wine Battle, Kitty and I enjoyed a well-deserved sleep, then got up early to get ready and pack up camp.  Since we were only about an hour's drive away, we decided to avoid the motorway and avoid some of the tolls.  One thing we've discovered...

Haro-ing Experiences

[Okay, punny titles aside, Kitty and I had great experiences in Haro, Spain - so here goes!] June 26th (Tuesday) Packing our things, Kitty and I prepared to leave the wonderful San Sebastián apartment that we had been staying in.  The woman who had been our host for the week was so very sweet, and...

Eight Days in San Sebastián

June 18-20 (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) After landing into San Sebastián late Sunday evening, the following few days were relatively peaceful and uneventful.  Monday and Tuesday were work days, so we were mostly cooped up in our Airbnb: Kitty busy with her remote positions, whilst I used the time getting caught up with writing and looking...

Onward to Spain!

June 17 (Sunday) After a somewhat restful sleep the previous night — our Airbnb host decided that midnight was a perfect time to start cleaning the bathroom directly beside our room whilst carrying on a loud conversation on the phone (wtf?!?) — we packed our things and got prepped to leave Bordeaux.  Stopping by the...
