In all the years travelling Europe extensively I just got to Spain briefly in the early 2000s and then last year which was a bit of an eye opener because we really had a good time up Northwest.
Well, who would´ve thought I would do Spain on and off frequently, so here´s a long overdue Spain post... I must admit, I never really got into seeing the value of spanish surf, food, people, culture and landscape until this year and as funny as it sounds it took a spanish chica to change that J
So on this trip I got to see a few amazing sides of that country and must say I´m stoked and I´m even trying to learn some Spanish which is f...n hard work of you haven´t studied anything for the last 20something years...
So far I´ve seen a fair bit of Madrid, the Picos in Asturias, coasts of Cantabria and some really pretty places in the basque country. I´ve tried cidre, chuleton, horseriding, am addicted to Gazpacho and Jamon Iberico. Long story short, I really love the place and look forward to the swell for next week and some solid waves across the border.
More than this I just feel blessed to be able to do what I´m doing right now, to be falling in love with a girl here in Spain, to surf every day and continue chasing waves and to get new inspiration and ideas every day from the ever changing landscape and culture along that trip. Yewwwwww
