Despite the very warm room we slept reasonably well in Balneario de Liérganes in Lierganes. The bathroom is a bit strange, it looks like the floor tiles are loose. All in all, we find the 147 euros that are charged for the rooms a lot of money for very little comfort.
Fortunately, breakfast is not too bad, except for the coffee, which must pass for espresso but does not taste like it.

We buy some dried beans in Lierganes and half past eleven we go away to La Teste-de-Buch close to Bordeaux.
In Spain we drive over the beautiful Autovía del Cantábrico, at Bilbao it is busy but otherwise the traffic is quiet. In France it becomes the boring A63, for almost 200 km.

At about four we are in La Teste-de-Buch at the Hotel Ibis Arcachon La Teste. This is a simple hotel but good enough for the two nights we stay there.
We have a drink in the bar, reserve a table in the hotel restaurant and then go for a walk to the center of La Test-de-Buche, it is half an hour's walk.
There are quite a few restaurants in the center, and on google maps we have even found a Cambodian restaurant in the center of La Teste-du-Buch.

We walk back to the hotel and eat in the restaurant, the food is reasonable.
Then we sit in our room for a while.
We have driven 4115 km so far

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
