San Sebastian, Spain

I have been wanting to go to San Sebastian ever since I heard about its reputation for amazing food over 6 years ago. Unfortunately, I think I picked the wrong day to visit (or so I thought at first)…today as I came through the Northern Spanish mountains by bus it begin to rain, and rain, and rain. By the time I arrived in town, the streets were empty, the shoppes all closed (it’s also unfortunately a Sunday), and the rain continued to fall. To be honest it was a nice reprieve from the heat of Madrid, but this supposedly lively beach town was, as far as I could tell, all indoors.

The hostel was a 20 minute, wet, lonely walk from the bus station and possibly one of the most over-priced, messy and cramped hostels I have ever stayed in. But that’s ok, it’s just a place to sleep really.

After a few hours in town the rain let up with just enough time to go for a walk to see the town and take some photos. And to my pleasure, San Sebastian is one of the most stunningly beautiful towns I have ever seen! And the weather made it all the more so…sometimes the silver lining in the cloud are the clouds themselves, so here’s a little taste of this incredible place!
