We went to seek out some Winter sun in Bilbao. There is nothing better in the month of January (especially when the weather has been so damn bleak) to take a little break from it all and go seek out some sun rays, it’s definitely good for the soul. A big coat and sunglasses make the perfect combination for exploring the beautiful streets, which we did by the bucket load.
Bilbao is a beautiful town which runs alongside the river. Air BnB came up trumps for us as we found ourselves in the most amazing apartment up in the eaves of a building. This came at price though as we soon found out, old apartments aren’t equipped with the luxury of a lift so we spent quite a lot of time walking up and down the 5 storey building to get to the top…well worth it though.
If you’re heading this way at all you’re in for a treat; possibly some of the best food and wine I’ve ever sampled. Be sure to check out the Guggenheim too, such an incredible building…take me back.
