Wander, wander wander. Get off of the main drag. This is one city where you canNOT go wrong. Whether you walk into a dirty bar and it turns out to be delicious gourmet food, take a wrong turn up a mountain and hit a man selling coffee in a stone hut, or end up across the river from Casco Viejo and mix it up with the locals, you just can’t go wrong in this most beautiful town.
Oh, and order some Colacao at Bidaluze in one of the Plazas. Comes with Marias and a coating of chocolate…mmmm.
Just back from San Seb after a ten year gap…ten years ago this place changed my life during a year abroad at Deuesto Business School…went back with one of my best friends. The place has changed only in very subtle ways – more relaxed, more people speaking Spanish, Spanish flags etc. But the rest was so San Seb – frudisk smelt the same and the pinxos as good as ever. Wonder company, wonderful place.over 6 years ago
