How 2 – Pintxos – a monday walk in Donostia, Spain

 Monday, We went for a walk- 10+ k, nice views, good wine and plenty food.

After last nights (re)-introduction, we make our own barhopping tour… I stress monday, in the headline as many bar’s and restaurants are closed.

Info: We only ate almost everything photographed….

Here’s some impressions from a day in Donostia:

I almost forgot G&T – the omnipresent local drink!

Here I truly believe in the value of homework, look up some names, check Michelin, Tripadvisor, Foursquare and the especially the food blogs for suggestions of what to eat where. Be open to deviate from your plan and habits… then I promise you will have a wonderful stay in the beautiful and friendly San Sebastian.

Lessons Learned
  • Sharing a glass and non alcoholic can be neccesary to survive 12 hours of eating
  • Life is good…
