I wish to stay anonymous online but ''Muturzikiña'' is my real nickname. To make it shorter, call me Mutur.
Anonymity is an important feature of a personal Web site or profile when the author of the site (ie. me, myself and I) is far less interesting than his project.
About my aim, my
display the ethnic and linguistic complexities in some parts of the
world. Each language limit or isogloss transcends geographical borders, where appropriate. I am committed to a different, more enlightening approach to cartography
and I seek to preserve the integrity of the area in which the language or dialect is spoken, even where this crosses international borders.
Below, I keep descriptions of where I went and what I did in Euskal Herria as generic as possible.
Welcome to my site ! I hope you enjoy my work.
Me, myself and I.
Euskal Herria......Basque Country...
Hum, I guess I have some knowledge on the topic. During the last 15 years, I’ve visited many places in Basque country and have done so either by cycling, walking or driving. See map below.
I’ve spent a considerable amount of time walking with friends over various trails leading to many special and beautiful spots. I have constantly been touched and inspired by the quaint charm of such basque villages as Arantza, Elciego, Leintz Gatzaga, Korres and Izaba. I should mention that the hot and relaxing beaches of Laga and Lekeitio are a welcome alternative to the crush and hype of typical resort destinations.
The mountains of Urbasa eta Andía and Aralar plus the Iraty forest bear one of the Earth’s most unexpected mystical treasures. There’s magic in the air and you'll have to go there to find out what it is. I've explored megalithic monuments (Cromlechs, dolmens, caves ...) as well as the Roman tower of Urkulu, passed by Wisigoths, Franks and the modern museum of Guggenheim.
Basque cuisine has given me the chance to experience the
difference between coastal cuisine, which is dominated by fish and seafood,
and the inland cuisine with it's fresh and cured meats typical on
both the French and Spanish side.
Gora Euskal Herria (Long live the Basque Country)
