Road Trip!

Four years removed from the Great Road Trip of 2009, I rented a car in Madrid with the intention of going surfing in Cantabria. I happened to mention my trip to my friend Laura, who would be spending part of the week in Bordeaux, France. South France is right next door, why not turn it into a road trip along the coasts of France and Spain?

We bought a map, and with the addition of our French friend Julie, we set out on site-seeing adventure that took us from Madrid to Bordeaux, and then back to Madrid by way of the Great Dune of Pyla, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Irun, San Sebastian, Gernika, Bilbao, Castro Urdiales, and Burgos.

Feel free to follow any of the links above for witty commentary, boring summary, beautiful photos, ugly photos and semi-thoughtful observation on the sights we saw. The trip also tickled my gastronomic, historical, and economic interests.

Bonne lecture, buena lectura, ona irakurketa!
