Having traveled through the slightly off the beaten path of Northern Spain, I thought it might be useful to pen down some practical information on how to travel through this part of the vast and beautiful country of Spain. I often found more information on the bigger and more popular cities of Spain but found it a little difficult to get easy information on this part. Its my humble attempt to list a few things that might be useful to someone planning to travel here someday!
Seated right along the border of France and Spain and flanked by gorgeous beaches, San Sebastian is a walhalla of fine dining and is a perfect getaway from France or Spain for a long weekend. My last stop along the northern coast of Spain, I took a morning bus from Santander to San Sebastian passing through Bilbao. I could have chosen to spend my time in the bigger Bilbao instead but I was ready for a more intimate and chic affair with San Sebastian.
Cantabria is a strip of land sandwiched between the state of Asturias and the autonomous Basque region in Northern Spain. It is a region that abounds in nature’s wealth. I had been traveling in Asturias for a while and decided to move to its neighboring state with some sadness in my heart because Asturias had been delightfully beautiful, the people had been so good, I had made new friends as well, but as I had read in a café, you have to keep moving forward to keep your balance, its just like riding a bicycle! So I proceeded to Santander, the capital of Cantabria from Llanes in Asturias, on a morning bus expecting to see more of this criminally under explored part of Spain.
