What a luxury not to have get up early and walk up and over steep hills. Our bodies are thanking us although we have both felt quite good every day with minimal stiffness or soreness. We are trying to stretch a little more as we rarely stretch at all. Since we arrived in Bilbao around noon, we had lunch, showered and took all of our clothes to a laundromat before an early dinner and sleep.
We were in Bilbao in July of 2017 with grandson Jackson and Dick and Andrew. We spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. On our return visit we do not feel compelled to tour the city extensively. We loved Guggenheim Museum Bilbao on our last visit so a return viewing is our number one priority.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art designed by Frank Gehry. It was opened on October 18 1997 by King Juan Carlos I of Spain. The Guggenheim foundation is dedicated to the preservation, interpretation and collection of just modern and contemporary art. The only Guggenheim that we have not yet visited is in Abu Dhabi.
The rest of the pictures and dialogue are ours.
Our day and one half here was very pleasant and well spent. Tomorrow, Friday 24 September we start our second week of our five week walk to Santiago de Compostela.
We are septuagenarians doing our best to set an example as to what a good retirement looks and feels like. Feel free to travel along on a very personal journey with us. Just remember that the destination is not important, it is the journey that counts.
