I wish I had a little bit more time!
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Another day in Porto and another day in Bilbao would have been nice to explore the surrounding areas more.
Anything go wrong during the trip?
How was the food?
Eater, Culture Trip, and the Crazy Tourist all have great recommendations. Definitely get a francesinha and port wine in Porto, octopus and traditional sweets in Santiago de Compostela, and pintxos in Bilbao.
What tips would you give a friend?
Walk around and explore as much as you can. Bring your wallet, phone, and a small bag with a water bottle and sweatshirt with you so you can be comfortable for multiple hours.
Rome2Rio has good resources for scouting out a route from place to place, and then use the national bus/train lines.
