from paseo campo de volantin to mulle de la merced
Please could anyone give me directions on how to get from Paseo Campo de Volantin to Muelle de la Merced and back using public transport? Plan to attend a tango lesson and would prefer to walk as little as possible after a whole day of sightseeing!
Re: from paseo campo de volantin to mulle de la merced
If you are in the Part of the Campo de Volantin that is closer to to the Town Hall (Plaza Ernesto Erkoreka) it is just a kilometre you have to walk, following the river. You might take 56 or 77 buses from Arriaga Theater, but to get there; you already will have walked half the way, and would stay on the bus for just one stop.
I would just walk.
Travel Tips for Bilbao
The welcoming Basque's
Do not rush around the Basque Country, take lots of time, relax and spend time in all parts. From Bilbao take the metro to coastal towns and beaches, see how they live and be grateful you took the chance of going. The people, so proud of their culture, language, traditions and food are a joy to be amongst. I am lucky enough to be moving there in May 2003 with my Girlfriend (from Bilbao) and I will make the most of every second. Too many to mention, recent memories that stick in my mind: with my girlfriend and 20 of her friends at the "Cathedral" Athletico Bilbao's San Mames stadium, watching the Basque selection play Macedonia. The noise, the atmosphere, the colour of the Basque flags everywhere, the Kalemoxto (red wine & coke) overwhelming. 2: My girlfriends brother bringing me up high over Bilbao into the mountains to see a friend who bought a tiny cottage as a holiday hide-away, superb, crazy, normal.

That's Basque Country, in Euskara the basque language, you very often hear on the street.
It's a nation. At least for it's history and culture. The Basque Country is the territory which is historically, ethnically and culturally Basque. Basques consider their country with 7 regions: Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa, Araba and Nafarroa on the Spanish side, Lapurdi, Nafarroa Beherea and Zuberoa on the French side.
Basques defend their culture and want to be an independent country.
Keep your Rucksack Safe -- Keep your kit Dry
If you are travelling Anywhere and using a Rucksack / Backpack as your luggage then I would Strongly recommend that you use some form of Rucksack / Backpack Pro-tector !!
This tip is from my own personal experience, as I have had Big Problems having my Rucksack damaged or even destroyed by airlines, particularly on Airport Carousels,
What can happen is that one of the straps can drop in-between the lats on the moving Carousel and then as your Rucksack goes around a corner, the strap gets ripped off, I lost the entire back and carrying system from one of my rucksacks !! You Definitely don't want this to happen, Especially on the way out to start walking your Camino !!
As The Rucksack Pro-Tector has the second function as a water-resistant liner for your rucksack. It is a particularly useful piece of kit for Camino walking, Other rucksack protectors leave you with the problem of having to carry it around with you for the walk with no useful function !! I have tried many of the Rucksack / Backpack Protectors that are available on the market and was disappointed with how they performed, So after having many problems with these decided to design and manufacture my own.
Full details of how this came about are written up on my Nepal page.
So, Obviously my own recommendation would be to get your Rucksack / Backpack Protector from Pro-Tector Also, after successfully designing, producing and selling the Rucksack Pro-tector for several years, I have now introduced some new lines such as a Pro-Tector Travel Wallet and a Pro-Tector Document / Valuables Travel Pouch and now the Brand New Trekign Pole Pro-Tector
If you think that any of the above would be of benefit for yourself on your own travels then please take a look at my web-site
