I don’t know what it is about Cantabria, but to-date it’s my favorite place in Europe, and probably the only region of Spain which I have visited several times â€“ and I don’t intend on stopping.
I haven’t been here in a whileâ€¦ the truth is that work has completely consumed me this summer. The few free days I had in June and July were spent moving outside of Madrid and settling in. And suddenly we’re in September, and I find myself sitting in one place, just counting down the days to my next trip (albeit a short one).
You now know perfectly well what my favorite destination in Spain is – the north, with its small and large towns, and houses built in the middle of nowhere. Its somewhere I can go at any time of the year and today I invite you to enjoy a walk around Santander.
After two years of regular trips to Spain, I have noticed a strange change in my behavior – I have started to stop and talk to people. Its gotten to the stage, that as soon as I see someone with a guidebook or map at the airport or on the plane, I go up and speak to them. I then come to the realization, that a 3-hour flight is just not enough time to describe all of the places in Spain that are worth visiting, but which the average European knows little, or nothing about.
