My personal highlight: Getting used that every little thing you can eat will be served on a tiny piece of bread!

These are pintxos

I wish I could write this article in Spanish, so many emotions running through my mind in this place!
The first hours are kind of cold and unconnected. The city appears slow and isolated to me. Is it because it is summer?
Everything changes when I got in contact with the amazing nature, the harbor and the waterpower at the sea. The waves are loved by world wide surfers and I understand why, once I see the waves smashing at the coast.
I realize once again that people also in Bilbao have their siesta from 2-5 pm. Bilbao is located at the Bay of Biscay.

What are pintxos

From a culinary point of view the must tries are the pintxos. Everything you can imagine comes on a little piece of sliced bread. Fish, meat, eggs really everything.
They serve pintxos in every bar. It comes with your wine or a cerveza, maybe also comparable with the Italian aperitivo.
tapas & friends in Wiedikon (www.tapasandfriends.ch) serve the pinxtos, too, if you don’t like to travel so far.

What to do beside admiring surfer

Beside the beautiful beaches of Plentzia which is a great spot to surf and the touristy area of Casco Viejo, I absolutely recommend a stop at the imposant building designed by Frank Gehry. The Museum of Modern Art, the guggenheim museum. As an art lover you must experience this.
