Hola Amigos, we’re back in Spain, our favorite European country, and in a brand new city for us, San Sebastian. We’ll be here for two weeks, so we have a lot of time to explore, but so far the city on the Bay of Biscay, just a stone’s throw from France, is impressive. It is known worldwide for its gastronomy. But we are wowed by just about everything from its architecture and beaches to parks and shopping-that makes a great city great. Pay no mind to the almost daily spring showers.

We’ve already taken a free walking tour of the city, which gave us just enough history and cultural information to get appreciate the area. This evening we take a cooking class that includes the Spanish tortilla and Basque burnt cheesecake. Day trips to wine country and colorful fishing villages are in the planning stage. So is an evening tapas crawl.
