1. On cobblestone streets in the Basque Country this impromptu music interview begins.

    Introducing Louise Guerin who shares some of her story and voice. I'll be looking forward to featuring Louise playing the guitar and mandolin in future videos here on the Basque coast.

    Recorded within an hour, spur of the moment, without backing music, completely live with interruptions & port sounds. Louise did not let that stop her sharing her gift and it was so nice to see people smile as they passed by. Hopefully this also lifts our hearts to enjoy this song by Ella Fitzgerald.

    Singing: Louise Guerin
    Song: Ella Fitzgerald: Lullaby of Birdland

    Lullaby of birdland
    That's what I
    Always hear, when you sigh
    Never in my wordland
    Could there be ways to reveal
    In a phrase, how I feel

    Have you ever heard two turtledoves
    Bill and coo
    When they love
    That's the kind of magic music
    We make with our lips
    When we kiss

    And there's a weapy 'ol willow
    He really knows how to cry
    That's how I'll cry on my pillow
    If you should tell me
    Farewell and goodbye

    Lullaby of birdland
    Whisper low
    Kiss me sweet, and we'll go
    Flying high in birdland
    High in the sky up above
    All because we're in love

  3. Bike Trials in the Basque Country.
    If you are new to Bike Trials: From the rocky beaches to the sloping hills of the Basque Country, or in the gutted spaces of a war-ravaged city, a Trials biker can transform the landscape to a playground for all ages. And, like free-running or parkour, trials offers a limitless track for improving skills.
    Join us as we do our part in connecting one another and improving our riding together, leaping and balancing forward in life here in the Basque Country.
