Oct 23, 2004 - San Sebastian

After the relaxing stay in the Lourdes 'campsite', we has a pretty drive across the south of France with the Pyrenees to our left for the whole trip. We drove south from Biarittz to the Spanish seaside mecca of San Sebastián. Following the extremely vague lonely planet directions we arrived at our campsite on a hillside over looking the spectacular Pyrenees. We relaxed at the campsite with a snack of tapas & sangria, then headed into town. The Spanish are a very relaxed people and everything they do revolves around eating and drinking, both...

Oct 7, 2004 - Travel to San Sebastian, Spain

Today we woke up early to travel to San Sebastian. We went to the Barcelona airport (a very nice and clean airport) and took an hour-long flight to Bilbao. Then we caught a bus to San Sebastian, which was about an hour away. The change in scenery was quite dramatic, going from the big, bustling city of Barcelona to the green, hilly, ocean-side town of San Sebastian. San Sebastian is beautiful, very peaceful and relaxing. We are all excited to have a few mellow days by the beach. We checked into our hotel, which is right on the beach. Derek...

Jul 26, 2004 - San Sebastian

Got in this morning and ended up getting a room from one of the Ladies who solicit rooms at the train station. We are staying in an apartment in our own room, there are several other people sharing the apartment along with the lady who owns it. Not bad and the price is right. We looked around for other places but everything is booked due to the San Sebastian Jazz festival thats going on here now. Hiked up to the Castle today and got a view of all San Sebastian and its famous cresent beach. Went to the ´Surfer´ beach with is different than...

Jul 19, 2004 - Estoy en San Sebastian y estoy muy cansado!

What a wonderful experience to see The Tour De France in person! I am very tired after a long weekend of very little sleep and no shower, other then the shower from nature I was blessed with on Friday afternoon, and a dip in the cold river streams of the mountains on Saturday. It was all worth it to see The Tour! I spoiled myself with a relatively nice hotel room last night, a long shower, and probably the best night's rest I have ever had. I am still feeling very lazy today, but had many things to take care of. I found an apartment here in...

FINDING MY WAY

Jul 17, 2004 - In love with San Sebastian

Hi All I've made my way back to San Sebastian on the Northern Spanish coast for a couple of days of sunning on the beach before heading to France. Unfortunately the morning is overcast, but still warm and I think I'll hit the beach later thisafternoon. The hostel is the only one I've been to so far that has a lockout between 10am and 3pm so we have to occupy ourselves elsewhere during the day while they do the cleaning. So far this has involved having coffee and orange juice at a cafe and wandering along the beach to the old quarter of town...

Miezis World Tour

Jul 8, 2004 - Laguardia

From Pamplona, I took the bus to Lagroño and another north towards Vitoria. I got off in Laguardia. It's a medieval town of about 1500 people. The entire surrounding countryside is used for Rioja wine grapes. The entire town is centered around the wine industry. The town itself is tiny, and no cars are allowed on what they call roads (alleyways to me). It was so relaxing, that I spent two nights there. Under the town is a network of caverns that were originally used to protect the town from Moorish invaders. Now, they're used to store and...

Jul 7, 2004 - Roadtrip to Spain

Spain was awesome. We rented another van and drove 15 hours to Zurautz, Spain. It's a coastal city that is very nice. The weather was nice too. It was about 70 degrees the whole time. It rained a little bit too while we were there. On Friday, July 8th, we drove about an hour and a half to Pomplona, Spain to run with the bulls. It was crazy there. There were so many people and everyone there was having a great time. Running with the bulls was definitely scary to say the least. Even though I never saw a bull during the run, the intensity of...

Jun 25, 2004 - San Sebastian, Espana

San Sebastian is the greatest place on earth! Please deduct about 20 percent for embelishment. but this place is amazing. We took an overnight train from Paris and met up with two really cool cats from Canada (yes...it is possible, just joke, there great!) So we arrived bleary eyed and delirious...Nick, Joss, Mike, Bryan and myself and stumbled off the train after a mediocre nights sleep with a strange french man sawing logs in the bunk next to me. Its a very strange feeling to sleep sideways, moving at 180 some odd miles/hour and then put...
