Day 1 Asturias Cantabrico Sea

Gijon beach in Asturias with Manuel Arjona, our MTC director. They take about 3 weeks off and we went to visit. They were incredible with us taking us everywhere.
Covadongo is a wonderful santuary where Pelayo, the Celt who held the North against the invasion of the Moors is buried and where this incredible cathedral is built.

Manuel and Anna Arjona, she from Gijon and he from Aviles, sister cities here in the North. This the lookout where to their front are the Picos (peaks) de Europa and to their backs, the North Atlantic.

We took a train up and was going like 140 miles per hour, comfortable, spacious and always a great view. We had wonderful weather and this was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.
