A full day in San Sebastián meant that we would explore all that this beautiful city had to offer. After a much needed sleep in, we started our morning off with a coffee, sandwich, and treat, and then began our walk along the boardwalk of La Concha. The sun was shining, and was the perfect weather for strolling along the beach.
Once we arrived at the end, we checked out some wind combs and relaxed along the rocks before beginning our ascend to Monte Igueldo. Here, is the most spectacular view of La Concha and town of San Sebastián.
After spending some time taking in the view and enjoying a coffee, we headed back into town to visit the cathedral del buen pastor. This is a stunning church with beautiful stain glasses windows!
We continued back into Old Town, strolling through the main cities park, to visit the infamous statue of Jesus. It was a decent hike on bumpy cobblestone, and also offered a beautiful view of San Sebastián.
In the evening, and after a built up appetite, we checked out Bar Nestor for dinner. We ordered their tomatoes, peppers, and steak! The server brings two steak choices out to you, where you select your cut, and then wait in much anticipation for it to be cooked. It was the perfect way to end our stay! Tomorrow we venture to France!
After a much needed and rewarding sleep, we woke up to a beautiful breakfast provided by our air B&B host: pastries, bananas, and coffee. Once we ate, we said our goodbyes and headed off to explore a little more of Barcelona before going to the airport. We had a tasty coffee on route, went to a few plazas, and the Arc de Triomfe.
Around 2pm, we took the bus back to the airport to get ready for the next leg of our trip, San Sebastián. Within an hour, we could see the water, lush green hills, and the sun shining brightly. We took the bus into town, checked into our pension, with the beautiful view, and went to get ourselves acquainted with our new setting.
We strolled the endless cobble stone streets of old town, watched the sun set along the water, had the most amazing gelato (I of course got the limon!), and then headed off to find some tasty and highly recommended pintxos.
We walked by several places until deciding upon Atari. The bar was lined with gorgeous, artesian sandwiches. You choose the ones you want to try, share away, and then pay by an honour system. Our six pintxos and two delicious glasses of rioja cost €17! Well worth every penny!
We explored a few more pintxos places throughout the night before heading home.
