We have just completed our 9th day driving about Spain’s Northern Coast and it has been AMAZING!!! The food, the drinks, the drive, the views, the beach, the cliffs, the mountains, the ocean, the sunsets, the festivals, the towns…it has been simultaneously refreshing, tiring, and filling. I can’t find enough words to describe it and, of course, have hundreds of photos which will tell a much better story.
Tonight is our last night in Spain and it is bittersweet. We have loved every minute here, but also look forward to being home in our own beds. The only drawback to our trip has been the lack of comfort with our hotel beds…and it has been oddly consistent despite our variety of large chain hotels, mid size hotels, and quaint charming smaller ones. We still have another +/-15 hours left of driving time before we are back in Amsterdam. So far we have logged about 31 hours in the car, 2800+ kms, and no quarrels :).
