Guggenheim in Bilbao

Pages from the Travel Journal

Page from my personal travel journal, recorded while in Northern Spain. This one show visits Guggenheim in Bilbao

On our way through Northern Spain we stopped by  Bilbao to see the Guggenheim Museum. It was throughly hell to find our way through the town center, where we kept getting lost. The museum building was beautiful, but I must admit I was a bit disappointed about it’s size. I thought it would be bigger – a typical feeling I guess, when you get to visit something you’ve been dreaming to see. The art on display was not very impressive either, although there were a few works that were impressive (but none that I would travel to see).

The museums michelin lunch restaurant on the other side gave us a truly terrific experience. First we had a look around the kitchen which was very interesting. Then we were seated and the dishes started pouring in including tomatoes with added flavor, sardines,an onion disguised as a fish filet, cod jaws, fish stomach, pig tails and 3 wonderful desserts.

Bilbao and the museum had left us a bit sad, but after filling our stomachs in such a luxurious manner, we were very content when we drove on toward San Sebastian.
