¡Vamos a Espana!

Tim and I off to Spain tonight.  It is our first real vacation since starting AdBuyer.com.  The trip is also in honor of our anniversary — hard to believe 5 years ago at this time we were on our honeymoon in Hawaii and Northern California!

We’re flying into Bilbao.  We’re staying directly across from the Guggenheim — should be a great location.  Sometime on Wednesday, we’ll drive down to Rioja.  We’ll be staying at the Hotel Marques de Riscal which is a Frank Gehry-designed hotel on the grounds of a vineyard.  Looks like an amazing place!  We’re there for a few days and then head up to the coast.  We’ll be staying in San Sebastian.  Finally, we head back to Bilbao for one last night before flying home.

We’re excited to relax, tour around, and experience the cuisine!  We have a couple of nice dinners booked near San Sebastian — the Basque region is a real culinary hotbed.  Other than that I think we’ll be happy to wander the street trying different tapas and pintxos (tapas in the Basque region).

Not sure I will update the blog from abroad but look forward to a culinary recap when we return in early September!
