Cudillero | Spain

On our last day in the Asturias region of Spain we left our lovely Airbnb and slowly meandered our way along the coast in the direction of the airport for our afternoon flight back home to Lisbon.  The sunny weather abandoned us as we drove and by the time we arrived in Cudillero it was gently raining… but we couldn´t really be upset as we´d has so many days of sunshine which is really rare here. We had “Fabada” for lunch, a bean and cured pork type of stew which is very salty, smokey and incredibly filling. We have since…

Another town we visited during our Spanish mini-roadtrip was Luarca… a very picturesque fishing village on the north coast of Spain, in the Asturias region.

The fact that we weren´t staying in a tent was also a relief.

(Click here for Day 1: Geres to Porto Novo) Our first morning in Galicia dawned grey, damp and misty… and we discovered that our tent had given up on life during the night and had broken in several places… so it went straight into the bin and we headed off in search of a new one. These things happen when you buy a 20Euro tent, but even so, it lasted us 6 years and several thousand kilometers, so we couldn´t really complain. We followed the coastline for most of the morning but then decided to push on to A Corunã…
