So we had a 2 week stretch in June with no work on the schedule… something that doesn´t happen very often during the summer, most of the time we complain how we´re too busy working to enjoy it, so we weren´t going to let this opportunity go without taking advantage. The conversation went something like this: “Oh wow, have you seen how we have a bunch of free time in June!?” “Ya! Lets go somewhere!” “Ok, where…?” “Ummm, I dunno… I´ve heard that the north coast of Spain is really pretty?” So it was decided. Then, a week before the trip we were chatting with a Spanish guest at a wedding we were shooting and the first thing he says when we tell him where we´re going: “It rains like, every day there!” And we were like: “But even in summer?” And he´s like: “Yup… every day.” But we went anyway. We really should have listened to him, because it rained. Every. Single. Day. And we were camping. With our dog. Just imagine, if you will, that lovely combination of smells in a small tent at night… wet dog… confined spaces… fun times.
We crossed the border inside of the Geres National Park, which is incredibly beautiful and we will definitely be visiting this part of Portugal again! (As you can see, it wasn´t raining in Portugal…)
And we spent our first night in Portonovo, a little seaside town in Galicia, you can see our campsite right on the beach in the photo above. Little did we know that this night was going to be the end of our tent… but more on that later.
