Bilbao Greeters Annual Meeting 2016

On December 14, we celebrated the V annual meeting in Bilbao, where as every year, we had the opportunity to share experiences, welcome new greeters and taste some pintxos (tapas) prepared by the Gure Ametza Restaurant.

It was nice to see more than 35 Greeters sharing great insights and experiences on how visitors have impacted their lives and viewing memorable pictures from this year’s visits.

After the formal part of the meeting, we stayed and spent the rest of the evening enjoying snacks, drinks and lively conversation.

For those not able to attend, you don’t need to miss out on all the fun! Here are some pictures of our get together.

If you like “Fiestas”, August is indeed the best month to visit the three Basque capitals: Vitoria-Gasteiz, Donostia-San Sebastian and Bilbao. Why? Because for three weeks, local festivities are celebrated, one after another, in the three cities: the fiesta of the “Virgen Blanca” of Gasteiz-Vitoria, the “Aste Nagusia” in Donostia-San Sebastian and in Bilbao. During that period of time, all three have a lot of activities and lots of fun in the streets for people of all ages.

After all year preparing for this, we are ready for 3 weeks’ celebrations. Come and join us! You will not regret it!
