Upcoming Trip – Basque Spain

Join Ed and Jinny Fleischman as they travel to a fascinating corner of Spain:
October 6 to 12, 2013

Should you decide to travel with us to Basque Spain this fall, you will come away with a real understanding of the region, its history, its food and its wine. And what very interesting stories the area has to tell. Our base will be a lovely farmhouse built over 400 years ago and completely modernized and restored. Each bedroom has its own full bath. In addition, we have a wonderful kitchen to use for our stay. Using this as our base we will be able to visit the world famous Rioja region, San Sebastian, Bilbao and its well known Guggenheim Museum as well as coastal towns of Basque Spain. The Basque area has a rich history that is waiting for us to appreciate. During the trip we will taste wines from Rioja as well as the slightly bubbling wines of Basque, stop at local markets and pick up local seafood to enjoy. We are certain to come away with an appreciation for a region with tales worth understanding and appreciating.

The trip has been planned so that you will be able to fully enjoy yourself. Our small group will stay in a wonderful house that comes complete with excellent food, wine and beautiful surroundings. The trip will include fascinating historical sites as well as vineyards, markets and cooking classes to tie all the delicious flavors together.

It's easy to sign up for this trip. Call (202-966-3361) or email veflei@aol.com to ensure there is space and follow this with a completed registration form and $500 per person to hold your place. The remaining payment is due 60 days before the trip (August 6). Make sure you have your airline tickets, and a valid passport. We will pick you up at the airport in Bilboa and take care of your travel needs during the time we travel together.

Testimonials

"All I can say is I envy the people who will attend your class. They will have a wonderful time, and several of them will probably buy a shell and settle down in Roubia. If you and Ed decide to do so, let us know and we will buy a week or two as a "time share"!"
