Spain is a popular destination: Mediterranean Sea, long beaches, wine and tapas.
On the other side is the Basque Country, and especially Bizkaia, in the northern part of Spain. This area persuades with nature, a rough ocean, mountains and well yes, wine and tapas too. Which is actually a national staple you shouldn’t miss.
I’m constantly drawn to viewing points. When I’m on the road I have to pause three, four, five times to enjoy mountains, meadows or forests. The Basque Country has its own charme. Endless valleys, multilayered mountain chains and cute villages. So naturally, I wanted to see the sun rise behind the mountain waking up nature with soft lights and warm rays. I woke up at five and went to the village’s centre and watched the busy sun do her job, while the people were still sleeping.
