Bound for Bilbao, a Travel Treasure

Dear Rudy,

You are always looking for new places to visit on The Savvy Traveler. How about a visit to Bilbao, Spain, home of the world-class Guggenheim Bilbao Museum? Because I have relatives there, I have been visiting Bilbao since I was a child. Until the museum opened in October 1997, I was one of a very small group of visitors to enjoy this marvelous place. But now many more tourists have discovered it, due mainly to the museum.

Bilbao is strikingly similar to my hometown, Portland, Oregon, and I love it like it were my hometown. The city has grown up and is marching into the future with grace and flair. It is a wonderful destination for travelers.

Thanks for a good show, Rudy.
