After an overnight stay in Santander, I hopped on the bus and had a scenic coastal route to San Sebastian, located in the Basque Country of Spain.
When I arrived the Carnival Parade was in full force – and it was a huge improvement from Santander’s I have to admit! I particularly enjoyed The Nightmare Before Christmas float, and the Spanish version of its songs playing!
I stayed in a hostel named A Room In the City – good location, cheap price, and comfy beds! After eating a delicious fish dinner (always have to eat fish when by the sea!), and then drinking a delicious whiskey sour at a bar named La Gintoneria, I called it a night, eager to explore the next day.
It was a beautiful day so there was no better way to spend it than walking along the coast, taking scenic photos!
After I explored the old town, which had quaint little streets and a beautiful church at the end.
Nothing better than a cold drink in a plaza on a sunny day!
After lunch I met up with friends who had just arrived in the city. We wandered around some more, including up the hill to where the old castle is located – and some amazing views!
We became mesmerised watching the big waves break against land. Then, it was the final day of carnival in San Sebastian, but I had to catch my coach to return to Burgos. My mum came to visit the next day, so I enjoyed the next few days as well, showing her around my current home! But I really liked San Sebastian, it is a city I definitely think I would like to visit again. It’s good for sightseeing, but also to take it easy and soak up the city in its streets.
One thought on “San Sebastian”
San Sebastian is great!
