We woke up in a hotel with over 100 years of history, in a city European Capital of Culture 2016, with a shell-shaped bay and a pearl-shaped island in the middle. The views from the terrace were great. The most amazing remark about breakfast was that, even though our group was large and heterogeneous, it offered something delicious for each one of us: fresh fruit, cheeses, meats, cold cuts, variety of vegetarian and weight-loss healthy choices… and my weakness, cakes, breads and tea cookies and pastries freshly baked at the hotel.
Excitedly, wearing our flip-flops, we went down to the beach, at just 500 meters. Paul, the surf instructor who accompanied some of us less advanced in this sport, was waiting for us. From nine to ten thirty in the morning we had a wonderful time riding waves and learning all sorts of tips and tricks to stay stable on the surfboard.
After a good shower at the surf school, we were ready to continue our adventure in the Basque Country! Just then, the rest of the group arrived from their yoga and meditation class on the beach…
And it was clear to me why San Sebastian is called “the most beautiful city in the world “*
go Basquing & friends
