    This looks like a beautiful place to visit. I like the windmill and the port! -- I see you have signed up for EuroMeet 2008 in Karlsruhe, so I look forward to meeting you there.

    Great descriptions of Ortigueira. The Rias Altas is a great undiscovered area. I hope you had time to go to nearby Santo Andres de Teixido.

    I somehow missed this area on my previous trips to Spain. Perhaps I can get there this summer. Great photos also. Thanks. Ann, The Travel Slut

    What a lovely and peaceful little town :-)) When I was in Galicia ages ago, I never made it to the north - but should have. The windmill looks so nice :-)

    Mmmm, lovely pix Nomad...especially the little street! I'm looking so forward to visiting Europe and all those lovely little cobblestone back streets and lovely buildings :o) Cheers, Ann.
