Rumbo al Norte – Day 9: The Guggenheim

After walking around the Old Town and visiting the market in Bilbao, we had to go see the Guggenheim museum.

Easy to find and to park around, I liked it.

It does, however, seem a little cramped in its spot between the river and the city and the bridges full of cars rushing around it. We couldn’t have told the front from the back (maybe this was planned?) and the entrance looked secondary and also a bit cramped.

Inside, it’s nothing much. Also because you can’t really visit it without paying for the ticket and anyway there are signs everywhere saying that taking photos is forbidden…Which is a shame.

I loved the spider sculpture (Boyfriend not so much) and it seems that at every hour they pump water vapour (that looks like smoke) in the little square in which the spider is. We missed it, but the photo op would have been good!

The dog in front (called Puppy but renamed Perroaki by us – it sounded like more of a Basque name) was cute but nothing special. It’s probably better when all the plants are in bloom (unlike yesterday).












About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
