This time last year, I spent a long weekend (along with a long bus ride) traveling to Asturias, the greenest place I’ve been in Spain. From the delicious food to the stunning scenery, I was definitely captivated by Asturias, and especially by Oviedo. It’s surrounded by miles of emerald-green hills, which trap wispy clouds of mist in the little city.
It was especially nice in the autumn, right before the real frío had set in and when all the trees slowly started shedding their crisp, golden leaves in the rain. At night, the city center filled up with a rollicking crowd of university students and young people dancing in and out of the misty golden streets.
Oviedo is decidedly on my list of places I’d love to go back to in Spain. Fingers crossed that will be happening sooner rather than later, so I’ll be keeping you updated on my (triumphant) return to Asturias.
Also, be sure to check back on my blog on Friday for a preview of a little secret project I’ve been working on around Barcelona. 🙂
