Cudillero, Asturias, Spain.

Oops, I just noticed that I missed this:

Before we got to Galicia, we stopped in the quaint seaside village of Cudillero. A once thriving port, it now survives on tourism. It has also seen its population plummet over the last 40 years or so, by about half. Like many smaller villages in Asturias and Galicia, it is dying. The young move to the bigger cities, the older stay but just slowly pass on. It is amazing to stumble into places with 5-10-30 houses all empty. I plan to one day buy an entire village and have you all come visit. It is a dream to bring something back from the dead. To start again the economies of these small regional areas, and hopefully in a sustainable way. Asturias and Galicia are so amazingly beautiful, and compared to other parts of Spain I have visited, they are plentiful in water, cleanliness on the ground and in the air. The beaches are empty, the food is amazing. I don't understand why they are not more popular..... Hopefully, these blog posts will encourage people to visit, maybe even move and start a business as well.

The colourful properties of the port facing city. It reminds me of Cinque Terre in Italy.

Dog cafe paradise.

The marina and port, on a relatively calm day.

Another lighthouse to add to the compilation.
