    113. Etappe: Bilbao

    October 31, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Ein Regentag erwartete uns Pilger heute. Nach einem guten Frühstück mit selbstgebackenem Kuchen in der privaten Herberge starteten alle so nach und nach und auf dem Weg sah ich dann fast alle wieder.
    Der Weg nach Bilbao führte erst schön über kleine Orte, aber die letzten Kilometer leider fast ausschließlich entlang vielbefahrener Straßen oder über kleinere Asphaltstraßen - aber so ist das halt, wenn man eine große Stadt durchwandert. Die Jugendherberge ist heute direkt gegenüber des Guggenheims, das ich schon letztes Jahr bei meinem Kurztripp besucht habe. Für einen Stadtrundgang wäre Zeit, aber aufgrund des Dauerregens ist es leider nicht sehr gemütlich draußen. Für morgen hoffe ich auf ein wenig Sonne, auch wenn mich dann nur eine Mini-Etappe erwartet.Read more

    More on Bilbao

    July 27, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    Bilbao is my favorite city so far! It has wonderful buildings and is really easy to get around. The city is full of art, architecture, and trendy people. We had a lot of fun wandering through the streets and discovering the city. I hope to come back to study abroad or internship here!

    Bilbao

    May 16, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    I'm on the move again, on a bus to San Sebastián. Today is a 'buffer day' between my week on the Camino del Norte and the Camino del Baztan. It was good to have a later wake-up time this morning and I made the most of the very nice hotel breakfast.

    I need to resist the urge to walk today. Yesterday was to be a rest day, but my Fitbit says that I walked 33,662 steps. No surprise that my blisters were screaming at me last night 😊Read more

    Bilbao is wonderful!

    July 26, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    The Guggenheim is such a beautiful building! It is designed by Frank Gehry and is built by the river. The sun and the water play off the building in beautiful reflections which change throughout the day.

    Inside the Guggenheim

    July 27, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    On the first floor of the museum there is a large group of sculptures created by Richard Serra. Walking through these pieces was amazing. At times it reminded me of the small Spanish villages we walked through on the Camino with their red clay buildings and sometimes narrow, winding streets. They were very beautiful; an experience that was both personal and interactive at the same time, much like the Chicago "Bean" sculpture is. It is an artwork that is an experience. The top floor has a show by Jean-Michel Basquiat show which was also very powerful in a raw, intuitive, and intellectual manner. I can't say much for the Jeff Koons show. The museum itself was a wonderful experience to wander through.Read more

    Bilbao - just passing through again

    May 23, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Today's travel involves a walk around Pamplona, a bus to Bilbao, a little walk around Bilbao, a bus to the airport for my flight to Dublin and another bus from Dublin to Belfast. That probably sounds very long-drawn-out, but it's actually quite relaxing and a good way of starting the transition between the Camino and home.

    Next time I'm in Bilbao I'll make sure there's time to go inside the Guggenheim! OK, that probably won't happen as I'll be passing through again in September. Maybe this city merits a weekend trip as a tourist!

    Stopover in Bilbao

    May 16, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    After San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, I walked to Bakio and took a bus to Bilbao. Baikio was a pretty soulless place - a surf beach and lots of empty holiday apartments. I felt very out of place as a sweaty backpacker.

    I'm also feeling a bit out of place in my very fancy hotel in Bilbao. It's a really nice hotel, with great views of the park and in a good location for tomorrow's travels - but it feels like an interruption to my walk through areas of peace and natural beauty.Read more

    Guggenhiem

    October 5, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    O cansaço era muito, acordamos todos ao meio dia, à uma estávamos a sair de casa para almoçar no Agape, mesmo ao lado de casa. Os restaurantes aqui abrem a 13h30 para almoçar por isso tivemos que fazer tempo, beber uma cerveja, ver a loja mais louca de cactos e suculentas. Queria levar tudo para casa, se fosse em Lisboa não teria poupado o meu cartão de crédito...
    Almoçamos e seguimos para o Guggenhiem a pé junto ao rio. É um edifício impressionante onde passámos a tarde a viver sensações audiovisual ou a fazer parte das próprias obras de arte.
    No entanto, a minha ignorância não me permite entender alguns quadros, como uma tela preta, ou outra de 3mx2m com 3 riscas de tons laranja diferente para os quais realçam no guia o trabalho de sombras que não sou capaz de ver.

    Seguimos para os pintxos e o jantar na casa rufo onde eles comeram o melhor txuleton da vida deles, eu fiquei pela básica salada de atum.
    Ainda paramos no mcdonald's para o Ricky comer o seu gelado para depois fazer uma battle de hip hop em casa (Faban vs Ricky) . Foi tão bom que um dos membros do júri, Tiago Bastos Valentim adormeceu.
