Beginning next Thursday, you’ll be able to follow us as we head to the Principality of Asturias where we’ll explore some of the towns and villages situated on the northern coast of Spain.

Starting in Oviedo, we’ll tour the old quarters of the city and check out the World Heritage Sites on Naranco mountain which is situated not far from the city center. From there, we’ll make our way through Gijón, Avilés and Cudillero to Candás where we’ll board the Transcantabrian train.

The Transcantabrian train, a luxury hotel on wheels, will take us on a route through some of the most scenic and spectacular landscapes in Europe. We’ll stop to see the Covadonga Lakes, to explore a World Biosphere Reserve, to examine examples of Paleolithic art in the Tito Bustillo caves, and to discover much more before concluding in Nava.

During our trip, we’ll be Tweeting about our findings to both share our experiences and to help inspire new trip ideas. In addition to following our Twitter stream, you’ll be able to keep track of all the trip activity on Twitter by viewing the #turismoas stream. Additionally, throughout our stay, we will blog about not only the overall experience, but also about the specific details we find interesting along the way.
