Hondarribia to Limpias

We take lots of photos when we travel. I create an Apple shared album of all the photos and also a Google Album. If you would like to see all the pictures let me know and I will add you to the album.

I also create videos of our travels and add them to my YouTube channel. If you would like to see the videos my YouTube channel link is here. Please subscribe! Also please remember that when it comes to videos I am still learning! Videos are always a bit behind where we are on the trip. I just added the video for Barcelona here.

Today we drove along the north coast of Spain about 110 miles from Hondarribia to the town of Limpias where we are staying at another Parador. It rained most of the day but we were lucky to have dry beaks when we got out of the car a few times. At our first two stops we saw several hikers who were hiking the Camino Santiago.

Near Bilbao we stopped at Gaztelugatxe. It is a hermitage on a little island of the coast. Everything I read said you climb down a very steep trail, cross a stone bridge and then climb up to the hermitage. It was only after we took the VERY steep trail down that we found out that the path was closed because of a landslide and the island was inaccessible. It a very pretty setting but I’m not sure I would have climbed down if if known we couldn’t go out to the island! We also learned that part of Game of Thrones was filmed here.

Tonight we are staying in the Parador de Limpias. It is a former palace set in beautiful grounds.

The Spanish eat late by American standards. we started dinner at 8:30 last night and didn’t finish until almost 11.

  1. I would love to be added to your shared photos album. I really enjoy experiencing travel through your eyes. However, I’ve never used a shared photo album. I hope it is easy.
