…we got to spend a few hours in a bar in someone’s house in a village with a population of eight. EIGHT people. The very local wine was cheap at 80¢ a glass!
In this episode, we escape Madrid for a weekend tour of Spain’s northern region of Asturias, the Picos de Europa mountains, a visit to the place where the reconquest all began and a spanner in the works. Well, a blown out tyre that left us stranded in the most remote part of Asturias late at night.
Gracias to the kindness of strangers we managed to get on our way again…even if we didn’t make it back to Madrid in time for work on Monday morning. At least we got to spend a few hours in a bar in someone’s house in a village with a population of eight. EIGHT people. The very local wine was cheap at 80¢ a glass!
Listen out for Karina’s and my journey to the town of Cangas de Onís, the Basilica of Covadonga and our breakdown in the remote village of Aller (Ruayer in Asturiano) near the border with Castilla y León and a bonus day in the city of León.
