Basque Country with Special Guest Francisco Glaría
Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on June 28, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.
Rick is fascinated by "nations without states" — European cultural enclaves that were ignored when borders were drawn. Join him and his co-host, tour guide Francisco Glaría (from Pamplona in Spain's Basque region), for commentary and behind-the-scenes stories about the TV episode featuring one such destination, the Basque Country of Spain and France. From our San Sebastián home base, we tour the ancient Basque capital of Guernica and the dazzling Guggenheim Bilbao, and then cross into France for more Basque Country charms. From yummy tapa bars to lightning-fast jai alai games, we'll experience Basque culture at its most vivid. For dinner, we'll be enjoying some Basque-style tapas from Seattle restaurant Harvest Vine, along with a bottle of Tempranillo.
