Spain | Days 1 & 2
We left the Canary Islands and flew to Madrid and met our friends Sarah and Ben Kershner. We rented cars and drove to Rias Biaxas, about a 7 hour drive with stops. We saw everything from farmland to snow covered mountains and castles overlooking hills until we made it to the small peninsula famous for Albarino, rain and seafood. We had the most amazing boat trip to see how mussels are raised and harvested complete with going under the boat to the submarine. They then served us steaming fresh mussels on the boat complete with loud Brazilian music.
The leftover mussels they let the kids feed to the seagulls off the back of the boat.
We woke up, and Pops and I went horse back riding, which was amazing and insane. I am used to riding quarter horses or something similar, and these were gorgeous Spanish Lipizzaner’s. I got on, and had NO idea what to do!!! So I cried, and begged in my best worst Spanish to get off, which John told me I kept saying that I was okay. Without knowing, we had booked a 3 hour trip over the mountain to the beach. I finally was able to get off, shaking, and Pops stayed on her “tranquil” horse and went for a short ride without me.
On our way to the next town we stopped by the oldest lighthouse in the world, 2000 years old built by the Romans.
