Let’s Visit Tokyo – Spanish Edition

Playa Samil Vigo Spain

Today’s Video is a bit special and has in fact no relevance whatsoever with Tokyo or Japan, nope, in fact, and has you may have seen, I was away for the last couple of weeks in Spain for vacations.
While I arrived yesterday morning (7h40 AM) at Narita, I was not strong enough to fight Jet-lag, and decided that I would instead of showing you today a bit of Japan, I would instead share with you some shot I made during my holidays.

So today we will enjoy some clips I took around Vigo (Galicia), and in particular in Panxon and Playa Samil. Even if Vigo is a quite well-known place in Spain, this nice town it far to be popular among foreign tourist, and I must admit that I would like to keep it this way… By an interesting twist of faith, I discovered Vigo thanks to my parent’s Spanish friends who are living there. The first time I visited Vigo was 15 years ago during one of my many surf trip.
Just a few minutes away from Portugal, Vigo (Patos, Panxon…) and Baiona are truly magnificent places with stunning beaches. With a unique architecture, most churches and houses are made with granite, Vigo and its area is really unique. Climb –up into the hills in direction of Portugal and you will enjoy its eucalyptus forest, go down to Baiona and you will have the chance to see Christopher Columbus Pinta boat (replica). It is in fact in Baiona that Christopher Columbus and its team-mate disembarked for the first time from their trip back from America.

As far as food is concerned, well, Vigo, and Galicia in general is not what you may expect from spain, actually, Paella is definitively not their kind of food, but they however enjoy “Cocido Gallego” (picture above) as well as Tapas… Anyway, let’s stop talking for a minute and let’s enjoy 10 minutes of Playa Samil and Panxon.

Special Thanks to our friends in Vigo, hope to see you soon!

    Jesus christ, you were in Vigo? Dude, post that kinda stuff, I could have showed you around, Vigo has so much to offer. And for food, damn, boy, if you come to Galicia, Marisco is the way to go (seafood) but I must admit Cocido is an awesome meal for a cold day, it heats you up in no time.

    Granite is a big industry around Vigo, we’ve got mines in most of the surrounding mountains, and it’s been used in buildings for over two centuries.

    I’m really glad you enjoyed your visit, hope you come back :)

    Hey, hey, hey! I personally think this video is completely off-topic on this site! I insist You to continue making Japan-related videos instead. I am definitely afraid of this accident is a kind of “probe”: if the trick will pass, this whole thing will move to “Let’s visit anywhere!”. You surely are able to make anything You want (’cause it is Your site), but is it worth it?

      As stated, I arrived this Saturday a 7h45 at Narita and at home at 10h30… add on top of that Jet-lag and horrible weather in Tokyo, you would easily understand that I could not shoot a video… Now since you did not had video for the past 2 weeks I thought that you will enjoyed it, and actually I was right… So yes it is way off topic but this is better than having nothing for the past 3 weeks.

    It’s a nice video! Almost I can smell the sea. Thank you.

    #4 @Sorin Say to me some place in all the world that doesn’t have “Toyota, Canon, Yamaha, Matsushita, Nikon, Minolta, Nintendo, Kimono, Sashimiiiii…” Japan is in everywhere. :)

      Freddyncalm, You are substituting japanese goods to Japan. I can buy japanese stuff everywhere, but I can not buy an atmosphere, the spirit. I do appreciate the effords of the site owners, and I wish good luck to them in their way of making us more happy. ^_^
