Goodbye France, Hello Spain!

Our last stop for france was in Bordeaux – a port city southwest of France.  It was a 400-Km drive from Versailles. Whew! I was looking at corn fields before I fell asleep and when I woke up I saw vineyards.  “At last! We’re near.”

Bordeaux was a nice quaint city.  The streets were narrow and many buildings were old.

After Bordeaux we headed south to Bilbao in Spain. Our friends recommended that we visit the Guggenheim Museum.

My kids enjoyed going through room after room of artworks in the museum. They said that the displays were both beautiful and creepy. And I totally agree.  Too bad we couldn’t take any photographs inside.

And so we’re off to another destination.  Goodbye Bilbao.
