Santander y Santillana del Mar - Coffee Break Spanish Travel Diaries Episode 5

We've reached the halfway point of our trip around the north of Spain with Victoria and Abel. In Episode 5 we're making the most of our final day in Santander before heading to our next stop in the Cantabria region of northern Spain. It's known for its medieval towers, Renaissance palaces, and the Romanesque Santa Juliana Collegiate Church. Can you guess where we're going? We're visiting Santillana del Mar, often considered as one of the most beautiful towns in Spain. Join hosts Mark and Anabel as they discuss the language used in Victoria's travel diary entry, focusing on interesting vocabulary such as the adverb bien and the phrase en rumbo.
