Well, Joe and I have popped up to Bilbao after growing weary of bedbugs and feeling the need for new scenery. We reached Ages, which we enjoyed, and realized that now we were walking stages we had remembered in detail and would enjoy something different.

We took the bus up to Bilbao yesterday afternoon. I am surprised at the size of this city! Why did I think it was a sleepy little sea town?!

Anyway... we will visit the museum Guggenheim today, stay one extra night at the alburgue, which is a youth hostel, and head out somewhere new tomorrow.

Our question is this...

Where should we start ?

We have about 10 days to walk before we need to be in Santiago.
We would like to walk no more than 15 to 20 k per day.
We would enjoy seeing the sea at least once or twice since the sun is shining.
We really do not want to tackle any particularly difficult stages, as we are a bit weary of walking after 2.5 months.

We are not opposed to bussing stages.

Any suggestions?
