  •  Just got back, a fabulous trip (4+ / 0-)

    My wife and I traveled the northeastern regions, from Barcelona to Zaragoza to San Sebastian, then over to the Pyrenees for some hiking. You should definitely check it out. Good food, spectacular hikes, and some impressive history (knew little about the extensive Roman and Moorish history, very eye-opening). Only drawback is it is sort of expensive right now. Off-season would be a better time to go. We especially enjoyed the little towns of Daroca (south of Zaragoza, which was also very surprisingly interesting) and Anso/Echo (into the Pyrenees).

    We took the slow train once between Zaragoza and San Sebastian, was very easy and worked well. High-speed was sort of expensive, but I can see why people do it to save time. The buses were actually quite good as well, and much cheaper, but they tended to fill up quickly during the busy season.

    Sorry for the travel log, still kind of excited about the trip.
