Still holidays ......

I am going to the nord to visit Cantabria, one of the greeenst parts of this burned peninsula, at least they say so. Finally I will have the opportunity to see some decent forests. More photos from Rome and Cantabria later next week.

As I am too lazy to write another post I will continue here. I liked Cantabria very much as it resembles a lot with my country. The hills are as green as England and the sea is sufficiently worm to swim, at least in summer. There are a lot of things to do around, like hiking (Los Picos de Europa), visiting old villages (Santillana del Mar, Ruiloba, etc), caves (El Soplao) or ancient monasteries and churches (Santa Maria de Lebena, Santo Toribio de Liebana, etc). The beaches are not so crowded and in some there are good conditions to practice windsurf. Due to its colder climate Cantabria is a good destination for the hot summer months especially when trying to escape from the rest of Iberian peninsula.

And now some pictures:
