... we arrived where we thought they should be, to discover they were more than 3km away and all of that uphill. The moral is don't trust hotel maps. Well before we reached the first church we were out in the country with the cows and crops. Santa Maria del Naranco is a 9th century former palace, small but quite fascinating. It has no aisles and sunlight enters through elongated arched windows. Unfortunately the guided tour was in Spanish, the guide did ...

The evening before we tried to anchor in a river a few miles west of San Vicente but it ended up being too shallow so we come back to San Vicente and anchored more or less where we were the previous nights.

In the morning we headed for the bus station and took the only daily bus to Fuente Te (the cable car in the Picos del Europa) which is 1 1/2 hours ...

Buenas!

Today was such a bittersweet day! After class, where we watched Nueve Reinas, we grabbed some coffee and headed to the "end of the semester" ceremony. There, a few of our friends played songs (such as Country Roads) and we were given our diplomas.

It is so sad leaving here! I finally got into the groove of waking up ten minutes before breakfast, rushing to get dressed, eating crescent rolls, going to class for 4 hours, eating lunch, napping, ...

I can't believe we just had our last day of classes today. This trip has flashed before my eyes so quickly!

Today in class, our teacher let us all pick a song from our country to share with the class. So I heard music from all over the world! After that, we got to play the Spanish version of "Who wants to be a millionaire?". I'm glad our teacher let us have fun today after four weeks of working hard and having taken exams ...

Fireworks! (Ashley)

Hey everyone!

Today was a great day! After classes, I napped for three hours (because why not?). One thing I have greatly appreciated about Spain is their love for naps. From what I understand from my culture class, when the tyrannical dictator Franco passed away in the 1980's, everyone celebrated their newfound freedom and simply have not had the time to fix their college-student-like ...

    This hotel is right in the middle of town, not that it matters, because nothing is far. But the location is perfect. It's like staying in an old castle, stone walls, high ceilings with wooden beams, old wood floors, great old furniture out of a castle, and a totally modern bathroom. Also a great restaurant, 10% off for guests. What a great place, * will give it 8 stars!
