    San Sebastián

    September 12, 2017 in Spain

    Super-easy journey today - a quick flight from Dublin to Bilbao and a bus from the airport to San Sebastián.

    We had a nice evening, wandering around the city and watching the huge waves. Quite mesmerising! Looking forward to walking tomorrow.

    San Sebastian :))

    July 15, 2017 in Spain

    Bin gestern den ganzen Tag gewandert (25 km, mit Zwischenstopps) und habe in Pasaia in einer sehr kleinen aber feinen Herberge übernachtet.
    Nachdem das Wetter heute so schön war, habe ich nach 3 Stunden wandern und meiner Ankunft in San Sebastian beschlossen die Wanderschuhe für heute an den Nagel zu hängen und mir stattdessen die Stadt angeschaut, im Meer gebadet und in der Sonne gebräunt. 🤗🏝🏖Read more

    San Sebastian, praia Zurriola

    October 7, 2017 in Spain

    Com esta ressaca e depois de um bom pequeno almoço para tentar curar a ressaca, passamos pela Parte Vieja onde tínhamos bebidos os pintxos no dia anterior até chegar a praia de Zurriola.
    Estava um mar perfeito para surfar mas claro um mar de gente também a tentar apanhar as ondas.
    Eu e o Valentim alugamos pranchas e fatos, pelos visto eu só precisaria de um 3.2 porque a água segundo o vendedor estaria a 20 graus. Pensei que fosse muito mais fria que em Portugal por estar mais à norte, mas na realidade o fato estava-me largo e não tive frio, muito pelo contrário.

    Depois de comer uns pintxos íamos apanhar o fenicular para o Monte lgueldo, mas acabamos por subir de carro porque não encontramos estacionamento. É na realidade um parque de diversões para crianças, os adultos só apanham o fenicular para ver a vista e tirar selfies. Desse monte com vista desafogada conseguimos ver toda a cidade de San Sebastian.
    Seguimos diretos para Bilbau, demoramos uma hora para chegar e mais uma hora às voltas a procura de estacionamento. Que desespero e a fome a apertar, nem um único lugar estava vago por mais voltas que se desse! Acabamos por ligar ao proprietário da casa de rbnb que nos indicou um parque subterrâneo não muito longe.
    Deixamos as malas em casa e seguimos para um restaurante vegetariano, era a minha vez de comer bem. Na realidade toda gente aproveitou porque estava tudo muito bom. Ainda fomos beber um copo, beber uma cerveja artesanal acompanhados de um cão porque lá eles também entram nos bares, jogar matraquilhos e voltar para casa para dormir até as 11h.

    San Sébastian

    December 3, 2017 in Spain

    Erste Etappe ohne gröbere Schäden an Mensch und Material überstanden, 28km wers genau wissen will.
    Um zwei wäre ich bei einer lässigen Herberge gewesen, war mir aber noch zu bald, deshalb bin ich weiter gegangen. Angekommen in San Sebastian fängts zu regnen an und die Sommerherberge hat zu (gehts noch Dezember ist maximal Spätsommer oder so) und in die Jugendherberge komm ich mit dem Herrn Hund nicht rein.

    Was tun sprach, in diesem Fall nicht Zeus, sondern zur Abwechslung mal ich. Bei Regen in urbanem Umfeld einen Biwakplatz zu finden, nö echt nicht. 35 Euro und ich hab ein Bett mit Dusche und es ist warm! Gut hab ich mir heute eh beim Essen gespart, 6er Nuggetsmenü beim Schachtelwirt jetzt am Abend.
    Aber der Mensch lernt dazu, war grad shoppen für Morgen 😀

    San Sebastián 2

    August 7 in Spain

    These are pictures mostly of the old town. First is the city hall, originally built as a casino. Some might say things haven't changed much. The fourth is one of the oldest buildings in San Sebastián, a church that survived the burning of the city in 1813. The next is of the oldest building, located just down the street. Notice the half timber construction from the 16th century. Last is the theater, built as a match of the Opera House in Paris.Read more

    Swimming

    July 1, 2015 in Spain

    We jumped into the sea. The big waves made it really fun. They threw you underwater giving you a nice massage ☺

    San Sebastián

    August 18 in Spain

    When we got into San Sebastián we were super exhausted from not sleeping much the night before so we slept in until about 8 pm. It was nice sleeping in an Airbnb instead of being in a hostel with lots of other people. When we woke up we got dinner nearby. I had clams which were good but I only got 6 of them for my meal, so I was still hungry after eating. We then walked to the beach where there were tons of food trucks. Apparently this weekend was a big holiday celebration in San Sebastián so that’s why there were food trucks by the beach. The trucks came to save the day and I had a bubble waffle with ice cream which put an end to my hunger. Hooray! We enjoyed the view from the beach at night and then went back to the Airbnb. Before going to sleep we heard a bunch of loud noises, and looked outside our Airbnb to see a big firework show! The balcony of our place had a great view of the show and it was a lovely surprise, especially since I didn’t see any on the 4th of July. It was pretty cool how we accidentally stumbled upon this celebration! The next morning we woke up and did laundry while eating brunch. The laundry machines were pretty pricey to use, but at least we got it done and shouldn’t have to do laundry again during our trip. After finishing the laundry we went to the beach. It may have been the most crowded beach I’ve ever been on, but we were still able to find a spot with people not too ridiculously close by. The other beach goers were all respectful so it was okay having a lot of people there. The waves at the beach were incredible. They were constantly the perfect size for body boarding which was lots of fun! It was also really nice to just sit on the beach, relax, read, and do nothing. I did make one stupid mistake. I thought that since I hadn’t gotten a sunburn all summer that I could get away with just putting sunscreen on my face and shoulders and get a nice tan without getting burned. That was foolish and I of course got burned. The burn isn’t bad, but it’s still a burn. I deserve this fate, I was an Icarus who flew too close to the sun. After getting back from the beach and lotioning my burn we called Anna to get recommendations for when we visit London. When the call was done we went to get dinner. Many places were closed since it was a Sunday, or booked since it was a holiday and San Sebastián is known for its food. However, we were able to find a pintxos bar to eat at. Pintxos are the tapas of San Sebastián and are small dishes typically served on bread with sticks going through them. It was a lot of fun to try! After dinner we took the funicular to the top of one of the hills to see the views of the beach at sunset. The sun didn’t set in the direction of the beach, but it was still an amazing view! And we did get to enjoy seeing the beach during blue hour. I’m sure Dad is jealous! We finished the night by getting some ice cream by the beach. The next morning we got up to take the train to Paris. Getting to the train station was pretty stressful. The bus station for the bus to the train station was impossible to navigate with the buses located in the wrong numbered spots. We somehow eventually found the right bus, but it left a little later than the posted time which worried us. The train station was right on the border of Spain and France on the French side. The bus got stopped by police on the border for about 20 minutes while the police heavily questioned every black person on the bus. The whole ordeal was horribly racist and gave us a bad first impression of France. It also almost made us late to our train which was super frustrating being stuck on the bus when the station was so close by. Luckily, we just made the train by running to get on once we reached the station. Running to trains seems to be a theme of my trip. This was my last train so I lucked out on all of them. I guess throwing my coin in the Trevi fountain payed off after all!Read more

    Kein Platz in der Herberge...

    July 10, 2017 in Spain

    Nach unserem wunderbaren Weg über den Jaizkibel, der uns bedeutend mehr Zeit gekostet hatte, als geplant (abgesehen davon, dass wir ja ca. 3 Std zu spät loskamen durch den Regen 🙈), kamen wir abends um 21:00 an der wirklich schönen Herberge Eremita de Santa Ana in Pasaia an. Die Albergue liegt hoch auf dem Berg des kleinen Fischerortes Pasaia direkt am Rücken der Kapelle Santa Ana. Ein absolut malerischer Ort, wir waren völlig entzückt und schwelgten schon in der Vorstellung nach einer Dusche gleich noch am Mini-Hafen zu sitzen und frischen Fisch zu essen....

    Doch leider hatte die Herberge keinen Platz mehr für uns. Selbst mit weniger Trödelei, wären wir never ever vor 16:00 dort gewesen und um 16:00 waren sie bereits belegt.... Ich kann das nur immer wiederholen: Versteh einer die verrückten Pilger, die hier einen Sport daraus machen im Rennen um die letzten Betten.... Geht mir völlig ab, verstehe ich Null. Die Hospitaleros waren trotzdem unglaublich bemüht und rieten uns, mit dem Bus bis nach Donostia - San Sebastian zu fahren, um dort auf jeden Fall in der wirklich großen Herberge einen Platz zu bekommen....
    Zu Fuß wären wir wohl 2 Stunden unterwegs gewesen (wir vermutlich 3😂) und da die Herberge um 22:00 schließen sollte, es mittlerweile 21:20 war, riet man uns, heute zu schummeln und mit dem Bus zu fahren. (Morgen dann mit dem Bus wieder zu kommen und die Strecke nochmal zu laufen; ist klar.. offiziell sind wir auch immer noch bei dieser Story geblieben...)

    Gesagt, getan, nach einer Überfahrt im schaukelnden Wassertaxi 😍, saßen wir kurze Zeit später im Bus mit einem extrem hilfsbereiten Busfahrer, der uns eine Ecke vor der Herberge raus ließ damit es keinem auffiel.. Im Bus trafen wir dann noch einen älteren Mitpilger, der genau wie wir obdachlos für die Nacht war.

    Tja, was soll ich sagen, mir war schon leider vorher klar, dass es wohl auch in San Sebastian nix werden würde mit der Herberge. Dem war auch so. Und im Endeffekt für uns genau richtig....

    So landeten wir im wohl coolsten Surfer Hostel der Stadt, konnten raus und rein wann wir wollten und (Luxus pur) duschen wann wir wollten. Der Camino gibt einem eben doch genau was man braucht. 😉 Und so saßen wir noch spät abends in einem Imbiss in San Sebastian und genossen unser Essen und das baskische Nationalgetränk. Am nächsten Morgen war erstmal ausschlafen angesagt (ebenfalls ein Luxus für Pilger da man sonst spätestens um 10:00, meist eher um 8:00 oder 9:00) rausgeworfen wird.
