          Great Hotel for touring Bilbao

          Fantastic hotel (nespresso coffee maker in the room, comforable bed, great restaurant) and a great location within walking distance to the Guggenheim Museum and a rapid transit stop nearbye to take you into "old" Bilbao. I had a rental car and parking at the hotel was simple.

          The impressive Melia, Bilbao

          The 5* Melia Hotel is well-located just a few streets away from the centre of Bilbao. The reddish pink, perfectly square exterior is hard to miss and the inside is even more impressive, with an open atrium and glass lift shaft that allows you to view the hotel on the way up to all ten floors. Rooms were basic for a five star, but clean and the novelty factor of the remote control blackout blinds didn't wear thin. Nice toiletries in the modern, marble bathroom and the heated floor added a nice touch to the room. I'd definitely recommend this hotel as somewhere to stay when visiting Bilbao.

          We woke up late. Crossed the road from the hotel to the river area. This part of Bilbao has undergone a major urban renewal with the addition of linear parks and gardens. This was formally a port area. The Guggenheim Museum is the most well known of the buildings in this area, however there are several other significant landmark buildings and …

So we were both then taken in to see the boss lady to get her opinion - yes three months (90 days) max without a visa - UK different so who knows. It may mean that we'll need to have a day or so out of the EU continental countries before we end up accused of overstaying our visa - I wonder if we'd end up at the European equivalent of the Curtin detention centre?? ...

There were probably 25 Vineyards with booths. For 7 euros you received a fancy wine goblet with tickets for 7 glasses of wine. You just walked up to the booths of your choice, plopped down your glass, and they filled it up, seven times. And the very best ...

I was standing on the other side of the street, as I thought my chances of getting a good picture were better from there. I saw the whole team unload, and while, I did not get a good enough look at most of them to recognize them, Puyol and Messi were easy to spot. Didn't get a good shot of Messi, but I got a decent one of Puyol. ...

It was like the world’s largest Chia Pet—only made worse by the patchwork of colors in it. However, the Guggenheim itself was amazing. This beautiful building along the water front and tucked just under the corner of a bridge, is truly striking. It’s a building you must walk all the way around since it changes dramatically from every angle. ...
