North Spain

The European low-pressure area has reached us and it rains and rains and rains. It doesn’t make sense to drive along a wonderful coast without seeing anything of it. We cut the northwestern edge of Spain from our trip and head for the north coast of Galicia. We see pilgrims on the way to Santiago de Compostela with umbrellas or rain coats – no fun in this weather!

Yesterday it rained, but today it is really pouring all day long. We drive direction east and are happy to find a nice place high above a beautiful beach. In the morning we can see the sun and the beautiful coast!

Typical for northern Spain are the “horreos”, granaries built specially for this climate.

There lots of beautiful beaches but the sun is gone again and it is dripping. To find a campsite is not easy. Most of the beaches are closed with 2m barriers and the campgrounds are closed for winter. Perhaps the idea to drive back via the northern coast of Spain wasn’t a good idea.
