DAY 22

Week 4

BILBAO (Basque Country, ESP) to LOGROÑO (La Rioja, ESP)

Friday July 28th, 2017

TODAYS MILEAGE – 91 miles or 146 kilometres
TRIP MILEAGE – 14,563 miles or 23,437 kilometres

We departed Bilbao mid-morning with our overnight destination of Logroño, only an hour and a half bus ride to the south.

The afternoon was largly taken up by a winery visit to Bodegas Franco-Españolas. The evening was a laid back affair sampling pintxos from the numerous vendors down along Calle Travesía de Laurel.

We ended the night with me introducing Gabo to the age old tradition of Rugby Tequila - needless to say, Gabo now looks at me in a different light.
