San sebastian

SPAIN | Saturday, 22 September 2012 | Views [396]

WE ARRIVED INTO SAN SEBASTIAN TO THE RAIN AND COLD. WE SADLY HAVE LEFT THE HIGH 30 DEGREE HEAT THAT WE HAVE HAD FOR THE LAST 2 MONTHS. SO ONLY HAVING LOW 20S WAS VERY COLD. WE PUT JEANS ON AND WENT WITH THE BUSABOUT TOUR GUIDE TO GET PINTXOS SAN SEBASTIAN EQUIVALENT OF TAPAS. THE FIRST PLACE WE WENT TO WE GOT BEEF CHEEK AS THIS WAS RECOMMENDED. IT WAS DELICIOUS- IT TOOK SOME CONVINCING TO GET STEPH TO TRY IT BUT SHE LIKED IT. NEXT WE WENT TO A PLACE WHERE WE WERE TOLD TO GET THE MINI BURGER. IT WAS TINY BUT ALSO VERY GOOD - BUT OVERPRICED. NEXT WE WENT TO A MUSSLE BAR- MUCH TO STEPH AND MY DELIGHT. IT WAS LIKE A FISH AN CHIP SHOP AND PEOPLE JUST THROW THEIR SHELLS ON THE GROUND. THE PEOPLE THAT LIKED SEAFOOD SAID IT WAS AMAZING. AFTER THAT STEPH AND I WENT TO BED AND JESS AND KATENE WENT OUT WITH SOME OF THE BUSABOUT PEOPLE. THE NEXT DAY WE HAD A SLEEP IN- KATENE WENT SURFING WITH MATT - IT WAS VERY ROUGH AT THE BEACH SO HE SAID IT WAS REALLY HARD WORK. JESS AND KATENE HAD SOME MORE SLEEP WHILE STEPH AND I HIT THE SHOPS. AFTER SHOPPING WE WENT TO WALK ALONG THE BEACH BUT WENT THE WRONG WAY SO INSTEAD OF A 2MIN WALK IT TOOK US 20MIN TO WALK AROUND THE JESUS HILL- CALLED THAT BY US BECAUSE IT HAS A GIANT JESUS STATUE AT THE TOP THAT YOU CAN SEE FROM AROUND ALL OF SAN SEBASTIAN. IT WAS REALLY COLD IN THE SHADE SO I HAD A SWEATSHIRT ON FOR THE FIRST TIME. WE HAD A NICE WALK AROUND THE PORT THEN BACK TO THE HOSTEL. WE GOT BACK AND THEN WENT WITH MOLLY AND RACHEL FOR A PICNIC AT THE TOP OF THE JESUS HILL TO WATCH THE SUNSET. IT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF A HIKE UP THE HILL BUT THE VIEW OVER THE WATER WAS BEAUTIFUL. THERE WERE TABLE AND CHAIRS UP THERE SO WE SET UP OUR PICNIC OVERLOOKING THE BEACH. IT WAS A LOVELY EVENING WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS AND GREAT COMPANY. WE WENT BACK DOWN THE HILL AT 9PM IT WAS PITCH DARK AND SO HARD TO SEE- LUCKILY I HAD A TORCH AS THERE WERE SO MANY STAIRS THAT WE WOULDN't HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE. THE NEXT MORNING KATENE AND MATT WENT FOR ANOTHER SURF - THE WEATHER WAS NICE BUT STILL NOT REALLY HOT. US GIRLS SUNBATHED AT THE SURF BEACH BUT GOT A LITTLE COLD. WE WENT WITH MATT AND KARISHA FOR A HUNT FOR A KEBAB SHOP TO GET LUNCH- IT TOOK 40MINS, WE WERE ALL SO HUNGRY BY THE TIME WE FOUND IT. AFTER THAT WE HAD A SIESTA THEN AT 5PM KATENE AND JESS WENT SHOPPING AND STEPH AND I WENT TO THE SWIMMING BEACH FOR WHAT WAS PROBABLY OUR LAST SWIM FOR THIS TRIP :(. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL STILL EVENING SUCH A LOVELY WAY TO SPEND THE EVENING. WE WENT BACK TO THE HOSTEL SO STEPH COULD GET A TRIM FROM MOLLY. JESS AND KATENE WENT WITH MATT AND KARISHALATISHA TO AN ALL YOU CAN EAT SEAFOOD TYPE PLACE. YOU CHOOSE YOUR FOOD AND THEY COOK IT FOR YOU. aS STEPH AND I DON'T LIKE SEAFOOD WE WENT WITH RACHEL AND MOLLY TO GET BEEF CHEEK AND THEN TO THE MUSSLE BAR SO THEY COULD HAVE MUSSLES. WE HAD A DRINK THEBTHEN CALLED IT A NIGHT AS WE HAD THE BUS TO BORDEAUX AT 8AM.
