Te amo San Sebastian

Stairway to the sea
Picked up these little leather treats at an open air market (had to get two, one looked too lonely)
The enchanted wood around the castle

TAPAS TAPAS everywhere

We just spent three magical days in the city of San Sebastian where life seems to be utterly perfect. Not only does the city have georgous immaculate beaches (one for surf, and one calm bay for swimming), but its also complete with a castle nestled on top of a lush green hill covered in wildflowers and neon moss. The river that runs through the center turns an impossibly beautiful cobolt blue at sunset, bike/ longboard lanes snake through the entire city, the architecture is a wonderful balance of old and new,  and the people are some of the nicest I have encountered thus far.... the list could go on and on. But the food... ohhh the tapas are to die for. When you walk into most bars in the old town they cover the bar just waiting to be gobbled up. Fresh seafood on skewers drizzled in delicious sauces, brochettes, frogs legs, grilled vegetables... to many choices, its impossible to choose just one.

So as you might be able to tell i'm heartbroken to be leaving this heaven tomorrow.... but very exciting things are on the horizon.
