Fresh back from our roadtrip I'm sooooo chilled out. We started in my little black Fiesta leaving work in Manchester straight down for a good kip in the Premier Inn before an early ferry over to Calais and then a straight drive down through Paris to Bordeaux. It was an epic drive and we stopped off just outside of Bordeaux at a campsite, setting up in the dark with nothing open, out of season and freezing was not the best start :) Bordeaux was amazing, a very pretty city with a lot going on. We met a friend Mark for St. Patricks night celebrations and then made our way over to the coast and down through to Zarautz between St. Sabastian and Bilboa on the north coast of Spain. If you get a chance you should definately visit the little coastal town of Zarautz. A little surfers haven with a few beachside bars which will see you through the day and night. We stayed in a campsite, Grand Camping on top of the cliff overlooking the sea.
From Zarautz we had an amazing drive down to Madrid for the weekend to meet my friend James. Madrid is most definately the best city I have visited. The whole city is pretty much open 24hrs with people still heading out for the night a 4am. We took a free walking tour.
Heading home we stopped off at Burgos for a night and then Bilboa for a day. Bilboa looks like a cool place to visit for a night too, unfortunately we only got to see the outside of the Guggenheim gallery, if you want to go in the Guggenheim DON'T GO ON A MONDAY, it's closed. We spent our last few days on the continent in ile d'Oleron a little island of the west coast of France. A quick night stop in Calais and the overnight in Salisbury for a wedding and it was then back home to Manchester.
And now a couple of Lomokino movies...
