May 5, 2015 - Beach Day

Georgias recount of the beach day Today we went for a big walk to the beach. We kept stopping at the all the good looking pastry and chocolate shops. As we were walking on the beach we had to walk on stairs which when the tide came in later the waves went BANG, CRASH against them. Me and Ollie changed into our togs and went straight in but only for like 5mins because it was too cold. Instead we bult a kayak out of sand and destroyed it seconds later. Next mum and tomo decided that we would walk up this big hill. Mum told us there was a...

May 2, 2015 - Georgias day in San Sebastian

This is Georgia's diary entry Today we walked into town to find a place that sold sim cards. We waited awhile and when we had got up to the counter we had to have Dads passport. So me and Dad walked all the way back. Luckly we stopped for a chocolate covered crossiant and bagette. After we got his passport we had to wait for over an hour which was really boring. Once it was sorted out we had really nice cheese and bagettes. We headed to Mt Urgull mendia to see a statue. I wasn't too happy about the big hill and steep stairs my feet were so...

Apr 8, 2014 - Day 8 - It's a Super Spectacular Day!!! Until........

When I was a kid, "MAD" magazine put out a record (you remember those?) in an insert to one of it's magazines featuring a song called "It's a Super Spectacular Day". The first part of the song was someone singing about what a great day it was: "It’s a great big, beautiful, wonderful, incredible, super-spectacular day And your heart is humming with good times coming And you got that happy feeling things are going your way All the bells are ringing and a little bird’s singing while he sits on your windowsill Singing yessiree, I can surely...

Apr 6, 2014 - Day 7 - San Sebastian

San Sebastian, located in Basque country, is a destination that until recently, probably wasn't on the radar of very many U.S. travelers. That's changed in the last 10 years or so, largely owing to two (not unrelated) events. First, the virtually cessation of terrorist activity by various Basque separatist organizations, and second, recognition by the "foodie" community of San Sebastian as one of the great gastronomy destinations in all of Europe, if not all of the world. Generally, if you show people a place where the food is really good,...

May 20, 2013 - Inspiración del viaje

Vale, todos, hoy es lunes, 20 de mayo y aquí estoy en San Sebastian, a la costa del mar Cantábrico. Just now getting a chance to sit down and write and try to figure out how this website works. But, first things first. Why is she doing this, you might have asked yourself. In my greeting above, I promised an explanation, so here goes. From the photos posted herewith, you can see that I have been to Santiago de Compostela before. In summer 1985, I studied at the university there with a bunch of other Aggie undergrads. Our group leader that...

Jul 14, 2012 - Sun in San Seb

The drive from Madrid took us through the coutnry side of Spain. Every couple of hours we'd stop for a service break. Who would have though it was still necessary to 'spend a penny' whenever you went to the bathroom? I thought it was an old legend from my Grandma, but no, we did have to pay 70cents for each time we used the bathroom! The buses are pretty well fitted. There are movies for each leg of the trip. Usually soemthing to do with the location you are driving too. Theres also a few different music channels you can plug into aswell....

May 19, 2012 - The entrails of fish

A low key day yesterday but with a great deal of walking. First we made our way down to the Gros area which is an area of town adjacent to the surfing area of the beach and apparently where the surfers hang out. Apart from one surf board shop we couldn't distinguish it from any other area of town but we did see some stalwart surfers in wet suits braving the cold and patiently waiting for some pretty pusillanimous waves. The beach though is entirely respectable - a lovely crescent of proper sand around which the low rise old town buildings...

May 19, 2012 - Basque country begins to reveal itself

Today a treat for breakfast. Amalia having discovered my dislike of eggs yesterday, has Spanish breakfast for us today. It is baguette split and toasted and coated with some sort of very fresh tasting tomato pulp and topped with almost black jamon and a drizzle of olive oil. So much nicer than yesterday's omelet John reports and certainly better than my toast. I am curious about the tomato because it is like a pulp but seems uncooked so am whisked off to kitchen - Amalia is a whisking and whirling sort of person - and demonstration...
