So we took our first ever day trip to Bilbao. I learned where the bus station is and how to load the cards to get the bus tickets. The bus ride was just over an hour and it was the funniest thing ever. Cameron was sitting behind us and for the first 20 minutes was all excited and was like "wow! Dynamite!" to all the mountains we were passing and then I tried to sleep since we left at like 8 am and we didn't get too much sleep since we were all drinking the night before.

I didn't quite make the most of it, as it was pouring rain most of the time and it took me forever to find the hostel. I carried all my stuff around downtown for probably an hour and a half (cause ...
... a very friendly tourist, who spoke, in her own words, "very little English" offered some assistance. She navigated the menu for us, which was an absolute gold mine!! Our lunch consisted of a mixed green salad, the best pork ribs Toren has ever eaten, dessert and a bottle of wine - for 10 Euro each!
Tomorrow, I intend to relax in the sun while Toren will attempt to take on the Europe's longest "left breaking wave".
With love from Spain,
