Left My Heart in Bilbao


Bilbao

Bilbao had my heart the minute I stepped foot in it.

An old industrial city that is the capital of the Basque Country. It used to be a busy commercial port that went through a phase of industrialization and has now transformed into a cultural hub with arts and gastronomy as its focus.

There is something about Bilbao that captures your soul. The city is quaint and lovely.


Zurizubi Bridge

I loved that the Nivea River runs through the city and people revolve part of their daily lives around it. Every day, we would walk pass it and see families bringing their children to play in the many playgrounds next to it. People will walk their dogs and we often spy rowers moving in warp speed moving past.

10 Things I heart about the town.
