May 4, 2005 - France today....... Spain tomorrow!
Hi guys Just arrived in Biarritz...... Had an awesome couple of days in Mimizan Plage - a tiny little French surfing town on the SW coast (just below Bordeaux). Had done a seriously big drive to get there having stayed on the Normandy coast just before that! Grant got to see the D-day beaches at Houlgate and Cabourg.

Aug 21, 2004 - Chad is here!!! Off to Biarritz!
Chad´s time here visiting me was short but sweet! We packed many things in to his five days here...we rented a kayak for a long journey out to the ocean for a view of the cliffs surrounding San Sebastian, we rented surf boards and bikes ofcourse, hung out on the beach and had long chats about what is going on in chi-town, had wonderful meals, and a great trip up to Biarritz! Chad is truly a great friend, and I will forever appreciate how much effort and cost it was for him to come and hang out for the short time he had. Chad took many...Jump to full entry
