    A Coruna and Zara

    August 14, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We had breakfast, checked out and headed to the train station to go to A Coruna. After a short train trip we arrived, checked into our hostel, ate tapas and enjoyed a lazy time on the beach. I even went swimming as the water wasn't too cold. We went shopping at the first ever Zara store and I brought a cute black dress. We then walked around the foreshore and saw the Tower of Hercules and many sculptures including a mini Stonehenge and some interesting seats integrated with the landscape. We walked to the famous tapas street and found a beer place. We tried their pigs ear with strawberry hoisin and mashed potato which was quite nice. We then had Galician style octopus and more tapas before heading to the beach to watch the big fireworks display to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption, alongside 10,000 other people. There were fireworks which shot into the water then exploded again, which looked fabulous but, probably not great for the fishes!Read more
