If I could chose a new hill to explore, I would choose mount Gorbea in the Basque Country. It is really beautiful! You've never heard of it? It is 1481 meters high and (it) has an amazing natural park. Said park is considered as the largest in the area. It sounds very interesting, doesn't it? I'll be getting on with planning my next adventure there. If I had time, I would love to climb a route of medium-high difficulty (in order to) reach the summit. I'll have to get in shape for it! The truth is that I'm not that big on hill walking, so I'll need a few months of preparation.
