"Where Unique Character and History Blend"
A visit to the Guggenheim Museum was my number one reason for making the journey to Bilbao, Spain. A five hour train ride from Madrid, Bilbao is located in northern Spain, near the French border, in what is known as Basque country. I enjoyed the train ride since our second class coach was clean and comfortable. I saw some spectacular rock formations along the way and as I got closer to Bilbao the scenery opened up to green hillsides and rocky stream. It was Saturday in Bilbao so after hours exploring the Guggenheim, I did a "pintxos" crawl, going from bar to bar for appetizers and a drink. The food and the people were very unique to Basque country and something that every person should experience in their lifetime.
