Yesterday we decided on the fly to visit the Cueva el Soplao, a huge dripstone cave about 1 1/4 hours away from us. It really is a special experience: it starts with a small cable car train that transports you into the cave. Then the actual tour starts with light & sound effects and detailed informations from our guide (of which we understood maybe like 2%). But this did not hinder us nor the kids to enjoy the wondrous, almost magical cave full of stalactites, stalagmites, pillars and little mirror-like lakes. Unfortunately photography was forbidden so you’ll just have to go there yourself – we can highly recommend it. After the 1 hour tour we had our lunch break with a breathtaking view of the Picos de Europa, a unique and famous mountain range in Cantabria.
Afterwards we drove to Villapresente in order to get lost, err, find our way out of their labyrinth. This was our first time in such a large maze and we did feel quite helpless after a couple of wrong turns 🙈. Luckily the company responsible for the labyrinth had posted two of their employees within to help the helpless along and avoid any bad press due to tourists getting lost in the maze. If not for them it probably would’ve taken us more than the 1 hour we ended up spending there. We were glad to make it out again, the kids also had a blast running around and helping other weary maze runners by letting them know which way was a dead end. We finished this eventful day with a round of Boule on our house beach in Berria.
For today we had booked a skate lesson for the kids. Nate had been pestering us to get him a skateboard for quite some time so we thought it would be a good idea to first try it. It also gave us 1 1/2 hours of kids free time 😉. As you can see the kids had an absolute blast.
Now we just need to wait two more days until the next swell reaches us and brings us some surfable waves 😊.
