San Sebastián, Spain

Food paradise

sunny 29 °C


??San Sebastián Spain??

Hi Harry here?, we now continue our adventures in a new country. ??Spain??. San Sebastián (where we are staying is one of Auntie Jack's? favourite places in the world) and is famous for Pintox ( tapas for us kiwis) which is little portions? of melt in your mouth food. Think meatballs?, melted cheese balls, prawns?, mussels, squid rings, and small ham buns. Each Pintox bar has a huge selection of food lined up in the bar - you grab a plate and eat as much as you like?. It's Hoover heaven.

??San Sebastián?? day one

We arrive to the 29 degrees sun and the sound? of waves crashing? all over. We meet our fantastic host Indigo at our lush apartment and get the run? down of what we should do in this very cool town (which is on the 4th floor and no elevators) and head out for a quick bite to eat at a local tapas bar. Our apartment is located on 31 Augusto street which is the oldest street in the old town? - San Sebastián had a major fire? but this street survived.


We found out about the local aquarium? And decide to take a visit. It's very cool and totally worth checking it - it has Three levels - two fish and one level of models of boats and shells. It has fish from all around the world including fresh water fish,tropical fish and salt water fish. I reckon it is Ten times better than the Auckland one.

That night we go out on a tapas crawl we go from bar to bar have eating? - in the end we go to at least four different bars. Dad and I then sneak out to watch a football⚽️ game - it is Real Madrid versus Liverpool. A good game......

??San Sebastián?? day two

Here's a summary of what we do on day two.

We head up the to mountain to the highest point of San Sebastián - to get there we jump onboard an old tram that takes us on a 85 degree angle up the steep mountain?. There is also an old fort up here so we climb the stairs to check it out and the great view - check the Photogallery for my photos.

After that we deserve a treat? and need to chill down? so we all get ice creams and go to the beach. I have my first swim in the Atlantic Ocean (pretty cold and nice waves - this is a big surfer town after all) but over all a good day in paradise?.

Mum and dad head out for a night of peace and quiet so we have Maria come over to babysit - we have fun trying to speak Spanish and Maria teaches us a card? game.

??San Sebastián?? day three

After our standard morning run (thanks mum) along the waterfront?, we head out for a day of walking off the tapas. We head up another mountain to a fort and the statue of San Sebastián and then head to the beach to cool down. We watch the surfers? catching some big waves and dumpers.

We have loved it here - a good start to Spain.

Tomorrow we head along the Spanish coast into Basque Country. I'll be back. ?
