    I have been to the Basque country. My family is from Mundaka. This is a very Basque place. I have been to Bermeo in September when they have festivals and trust me this is the best time to go. The first time I was in the Basque country there was a surfing competition. In Mundaka there is a left wave and surfers from around the world come to this little town. Mostly the town is made up of Austalians at this point. On the bar it does say, “Australians you are not in Spain. You are in Euskadi.” I have stayed in Gernika where there is an Irish bar named Scanlans. There is only two Irish bars in Spain owned by an Irishman. One happens to be in the Basque country. Of course I have been to Bilbao. It is a wonderful city to walk across during the daytime or the nighttime. The best and most romantic is the city of Laguardia. It is in the Rijoa section of Spain. But in reality it is in the Basque country not Spain. Most people in the wine country speak spanish. If you are Basque I suggest going to Bermeo, Gernika (Guernika by Spanish), Bakio, Mundaka…. Agur
