San Sebastion, just what I needed

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Hola from the heart of Basque country. Please don´t call this Spain because people here are proud to be Basque and it shows! From the moment I set foot in this awesome city I knew I´d stay longer than I intended. The city is on the Bay of Bascay surrounded by lush green mountains. There are numerous little trails that surround Nepolean´s fort, all leading to breathtaking views of the ocean. I love this place. Rooms are cheap, the tinto (red spainsh wine), flows like water and the tapas are amazing. Another thing that is great about San Sebastion is the people, I don´t feel like a complete asshole here, like in France for only being able to speak a wee bit of Spainsh. Everyone has been totally friendly. The penione I am staying at has a wonderfully doting lady named Kati acting as house mother. We have a terrace that looks down on the narrow street below, and I have already adopted a slew of Aussie´s as homies. I will be leaving for Granada on Saturday. Almost a whole week in paradise! Yay!
pictures soon….

A beautiful thing…

 Tomorrow, after a lovely month and some odd days in France I will be making my way down to Spain to travel a bit.  I scored a cheapie tent at the Super U (suupurrr ewwww) and I am super stoked that I won’t be stuck if accomadation falls out of  budget.  The word on the street is that Spain hosts some realy fantastic campsites and I’ll be needing one at Nowhere anyway, a tent that is.

  So goodbye St. Civran, for now anyway.  I had to leave my lovely lass here, so at some point I must return to pick her up, along with many other things I brought with me and suddendly I have no use for.

  The last week has been filled with fun times, I finally got to hang with the growing English Expat population of Berry, found that there is a family of hedgehogs living at Frankies’, explored the Mouiln, (mill that is), and gave myself a few proper nights out on the town of Argenton-sur-Creuse.   

  Things are looking up!  My first stop is San Sebastian just over the France border, in Basque Country.  Yummy tapas and late nights await!
