My A-Z Travel Challenge – B is for Betancuria, Biarritz and Budva

Betancuria, Fuerteventura

Betancuria is a small village on the island of Fuerteventura that I visited a while back.  It was part of a day tour that I took around the island.  It’s a really pretty town with only a population of 811 and was founded in 1404, so it’s very historical.  Before visiting Fuerteventura I hadn’t heard of this town.

Betancuria is definitely worth a visit, the scenery on the drive is amazing.

Biarritz, France

Biarritz was just an overnight stop before we started our road trip in Spain, it was the easiest place to fly into from the UK to pick up our bus the next day to San Sebastian.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this place.  It had a very old fashioned sea-side feel about it, plus the food was amazing.  We stayed in a small quaint hotel near the sea front and had just enough time to explore next day.

Budva, Montenegro

Budva, situated on the Adriatic coast, was a place we spent an afternoon at during our stay in Montenegro.  It’s a very old settlement over 2,500 years old and has a very well preserved medieval walled city.  We were actually staying at a place called Rafailovici but after seeing Budva I wish we had stayed there.
