We're now in Santander and what a lovely drive following the coast from San Sebastian.
29° and Stunning scenery that's so green reminded me of Switzerland.
So much nicer in Basque Country than the Costa's in my opinion.59776

Absolutely, love the Basque Country and the pyranees.
It's not far to drive too from the sister in laws in Bordeaux when we stay, the coast, or skiing in winter.

Fell in love with Bordeaux Mike and not too far from us.
My partner Ms French is half Spanish from the Basque hence our road trip and she is showing me all the best bits.

Well today has been a superb driving day with a lot if it in 3rd gear roof down and 26°.
The N634 and N640 from Oviedo to Lugo is a memorable drive for sure.
We still have to get to Vigo :)

Spent today in Cangas opposite side of the bay to Vigo and what an absolute jewel in the crown totally unspoilt by tourism with great food too and a Trident.59931

Loving this trip which was for my partner to follow her heritage and visit places from her childhood and teenage years.
After yesterday we are both thinking we could live in Cangas it really is unspoilt.
Watch this space I might be moving again.

Glad to hear it, Phil. It really does look good and quite similar to our one-day Spain / Pyrenees / Atlantic Coast trip.
