Apr 13, 2014 - A cruisy Sunday in San Sebastián

Today's plan was to walk along the promenade and up to the top of Mont Igeldo to the lookout. The walk was lovely with not many people around when we first set out at 10am. By the time we got to the furnicular to go up the Mont it was getting busier. After some time at the top we descended and found the promenade completely packed. Spanish people seem to come out around noon and then go for siesta at about 230 and re appear around 6. By 8 in the evening the town centre is packed with everyone, families, teens etc, everyone and his dog (...

My favourite part of Barcelona was shopping in the arena of Barcelona it has lots shops and restaurant in it. We went up the very top part it was extremely high. My mum got scared when we went up the clear glass lift. We are now in San Sebastian. In a very good apartment but there is a problem there is a very small baby bath. My mum says that it is a bidet. It is something in France that you wash your bum in.

We are here in San Sebastián now and it is a great little seaside retreat. It is very beautiful, with a classically European architectural buildings everywhere. There is an old town section that is very original with small cobbled streets and plenty of souvenir shops and bars/ cafés. We had lunch today at a tapas bar which was great. We got there right on 12, no one there, got our selection and sat down, 5 minutes later it was packed all seating full and many standing at the bar eating. Lucky we got in early!! We walked through the park on...

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 - 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...
