Bilbao (Spain, day 8)

Our stay in Bilbao was short and sweet.  After arriving late at night in the rain we got a great nights sleep to get up bright and early and head to the Guggenheim.  After visiting the one in New York a few months ago I wasn't sure what to expect from Bilbao.  The museum in New York was great architecture but I wasn't super excited by the exhibitions we saw.  The Guggenheim in Bilbao did not disappoint on either front.  Both the architecture and the exhibitions were amazing.  I walked out with my head spinning from the different perspectives of both the design of the building and the sculptures on display.   Sadly I couldn't take photos inside but here's a few I snapped on the way in.





If you are in Spain and have the chance to visit - do - it's worth it.
