San Sebastian

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.
