Sometimes I get so bogged down in the itinerary that I can’t make simple decisions: Should we take the fastest route (autopista) from Llanes to our next destination of Arrigorriaga (try saying that three time quickly – or even once!) just south of Bilbão, or the more scenic route along the coast? “The scenic route,” piped in Marcus. “We have lots of time before we need to check in in Arri-whatever.”
The scenic route it was, and I am so glad we did. What gorgeous little towns we saw along the Atlantic coast! San Vicente de la Barquera (probably the prettiest), Comillas, Santillana del Mar, and Santoña. I wanted to wrap up each one and put it in my pocket!
