First and foremost, THANK YOU to those who responded and gave me some wonderful and exciting insights on what to see and do while in Bilbao/Basque. I am grateful for your suggestions.

Now, I kind of sort of screwed up my plans – I was too eager to get a special airfare to Bilbao. I will be in Bilbao from October 26th to October 31st. My flight leaves from Bilbao back to the states on November 3rd. However, the flight leaves at 7 am (Bilbao to Paris / Paris to U.S.). So, I have to be in Bilbao on the evening of the 2nd, which only allows me 2 nights somewhere else. I enjoy taking trains, and thought about taking a train from Bilbao to Madrid, dinner, spend the night and then back to Bilbao. But, that could be complicated. I’ve also thought about going over the French border and maybe to Lourdes. Any suggestions on where to go by train (preferably) or by bus that is somewhat of a departure of the likes of Bilbao/San Sebastian – someplace that has that WOW factor to it?

Peace and everything good to you
