Vitoria is the state capitol of the Basque region in Spain. We stumbled into this place on a wet, rainy morning and our first impressions were not good. Besides the weather, there was really nothing going on and we were about to leave.
“Lets just go to the end of the street” Sharon suggested.
We sullenly walked down this gloomy road. All that was going on were some Basque separatists hanging banners from a building. It was all very gloomy.
By the time we got to the end of the street, the rain had stopped and the sun was beginning to come out. to our left, was a staircase and we decided to go up and “Voila” there was this beautiful little city. We walked around for a few hours and then we got lucky a second time. We wandered into this charming little restaurant and had a great lunch. Persistence has its rewards.
