Hi! Just catching up? Here is part I.
We took a early afternoon bus from Bilbao to San Sebastian on Sunday morning (tip: buy tickets ahead of time because they sell out and then you either need to purchase tickets with the more expensive company or you need to book a “deluxe” bus). The bus only takes an hour, so within no time, we were there!
Check out my mom’s Halloween spirit!!!
Here’s a tip: Head out of the old town when looking for places to eat (except for pinxos! Stay in the center for pinxos!). We headed to Calle de Los Reyes Catolicos, but a better idea is to eat at La Perla on the water. The food is relatively inexpensive and it’s decent. We ate at an inexpensive place that was less than decent, but you live and learn.
And yes, we were in winter clothes, but there were plenty of people out and about on the beach in their bikinis and banana hammocks.
Yes, there is a roller coaster up there and it’s so scary!!! There are no seatbelts or bars and while it’s not a totally wild ride, it’s not all that calm either. We screamed.
Day 2 in San Sebastian
And after breakfast, we only had a couple hours to kill before my long train home, so we headed for a long walk along the water. There is a great promenade that runs all the way down the coast in San Sebastian, so if you find yourself there with beautiful weather, take advantage!!
