travel photography Cudillero Asturias Spain

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. We had such great luck with the weather this time around, if you´ve been following the blog for a while you may remember that we went camping in the Asturias and Basque Country in the summer of 2013 and it rained almost every day… so we were very happy to finally see this landscape in the sun! The fact that we weren´t staying in a tent was also a relief.

Oviedo | Spain

Our first stop on our Asturian trip last summer was the small city of Oviedo. As usual, we gravitate towards the food markets… it´s like a built-in compass that we have, impossible to avoid. So it didn´t take us long to find Oviedo´s Mercado, which is where we spent most of our time (and our money). The Asturians are very much into super-stinky blue cheese and cured meats… loads of cured meats. This is not a vegetarian friendly destination, but lucky for us we´re not (vegetarians) and a fair amount of our returning luggage was filled with jamon.

Asturias | Spain

Last August we flew out to the north coast of Spain to photograph the wedding of an old school friend of mine (you can see it HERE). We have learnt from experience that when you´re travelling for work you don´t get to see much of the place you´re visiting unless you book a few extra days… and this is how we got to spend a few days exploring the Costa Verde in the Asturias region of Spain. This is the first of several posts as I photographed a lot and had to split it up, otherwise you would all be…
