Readers may have noticed that Lu Travels Abroad Blog has been overwhelmingly about Spain. So far. This is not surprising to family and close friends. After all, Spain is where we visit often. Spain is what we consider our other home country. Even though Spain was not even on my family’s radar when we began vacationing in Europe, a confluence of circumstances took my husband James to Spain for the first time 12 years ago. He then took the whole family about 9 years ago. And we never looked back, only forward to frequent visits. Being there feels like being home.
So next time when visiting Europe, consider a stopover in the Basque Country. Get a glimpse of Bayonne, France while you're at it. If wanting the quiet stroll in winter or participating in the festive liveliness of summer, take your pick. Bayonne won't disappoint.
