Porto to Baiona

I have been in Spain – Galicia to be more precise!  Easyjet took us from Gatwick to Porto  and in the early afternoon we drove to up the Portuguese coast and along an empty motorway to Spain.

Route-finding was tricky as the driver was not paying attention and so no more photographs until we crested a hill and sighted our destination, Baionaits bay, and the surrounding hills. It was very bright and hazy but as the driver was somewhat tense this was not the occasion to play with the Canon 600D SLR – it was point and press with the Canon Powershot SX240 instead

And finally at the hotel, the Parador Conde de Gondomar.

  1. It looks lovely, I have never been further west than Oviedo although think about a trip every time time the Vuelta a España (the Spanish equivalent of the Tour de France) heads that way – it went to Santiago this year.
