Unfortunately I still have 6 months between me and my beloved España, but I will absolutely be in touch when I get there!

If you don’t want to get a rental I’d definitely recommend getting around by Bus. The Basque Country is well-connected by buses and they are partially funded by the government so the prices are low. Try searching BizkaiBus in google for the website for Vizcaya. There are some limited trains as well–always a great way to see the countryside. Definitely let me know if you come and we’ll meet up!

I’ll be moving back to Spain soon, and Pais Vasco is first on my list of places to see. I’ll be in grad school, so I’m hoping to head up on one of the puentes or longer breaks and see as much as I can. How would you recommend getting around? I’d love to rent a car, but will have to do some practicing on a manual before I leave I guess haha. Any recommendations of easy ways to see a lot of the region in a limited amount of time? Thanks! x

You’ll love Spain, I’m sure. I was living in Andalucía for 3 years, so if you need any advice on where to go, let me know! Enjoy your upcoming trip!

Your type of exploring is very much on the same line as mine. I am a relative newbie to European Travel (in my 50′s) but have major plans to do it for months on end when I retire which hopefully is in the next 2-4 years. My partner Rick and I have booked our first trip to Spain for May of this year. Unfortunately, we won’t be making it to the North this trip. We plan to spend our time in Andulucia Area, Up the coast line and hills in between up to Barcelona. We are going to follow your blog with great interest. You go girl!!

The caves were closed anyway I think, so I’ll have to go back.

I didn’t realize that people lived in cave houses there, I thought it was only in and around Granada. Definitely on my list of places to see in Spain!

Gran Canaria, for example, boasts Artenara where people still live in cave houses and Tejeda best visited when the almond trees are in bloom. What we may lack in architecture, we make up for in setting.
