Day 6 - Bilbao to Santillana del Mar

A travel blog entry by crazy.travelers

We started up by oversleeping. After talking with Mike and Susan about bus tours we've taken where there is always one couple who is always late and makes everyone wait, we slept until 9:30!! (We were supposed to meet at 9:00!). Left after breakfast, and a 2 hour drive to Santillana del Mar. We drove very close to the Atlantic, here the mountains …

The best campsite in the universe

Ah Asturias, why are your waters warmer than southern Portugal? Anyways, this is the most expensive campground we've been too so far, but also the best view by far. You get both the ocean and the mountains from Picos de Europa. The camping is called La Paz, maybe because it's on a cliff above the ...

My first exchange with native speakers (Emily)

... hang out with native Spanish speakers instead of with the Americans (who only want to speak English most of the time). My goal is to be able to speak Spanish dramatically better by the time I leave, and I believe this is the way to achieve that goal. Speaking Spanish inside the classroom but English in my free time will get me no where. This is exactly what our teacher, Lourdes, has told us since day 1 and I am so glad I finally took her advice.

Anyways, Ciao!

First excursion with UIMP (Emily)

... very excited that we were able to see a work of his! The building of his that we saw was the Capricho - decorated with tiles that have sunflower designs and music notes on them. It's a unique place, for sure! Gaudí was highly influenced by nature, so his architecture is one of a kind.

We had a great time on our first excursion! We will be going on these trips every weekend to see what is around our school.

Until next time,

Excursion #1! (Ashley)

... a hamburger! Unfortunately, I was fooled again, as it was LITERALLY a HAM-burger. It was grilled pork on what would seem to be a ham burger. I am very tired of ham, and that made me sad to be cheated into eating it one last time.

Once our tummies were full, we headed to a small town, called Comillas. There, we saw a wonderful palace and cathedral. As we were waking, I was getting tired. Part of ...

    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!
