It was going to be a long drive to Barcelona so the logical stopping point was Zaragoza. A place we knew nothing about.
We had given ourselves the ultimate challenge, to see as much of Barcelona in a day as possible. It was madness!
From there we walked to the Arc de Triomf, a large red brick celebratory arch leading down to the Parc de la Ciutadella as we needed a bit of a sit down. It was hot!
We left San Sebastián reluctantly having enjoyed our time very much.
Arriving at the Hotel Gudamendi, a large motel masquerading as a hotel, we realised that things were slightly amiss.
It was a short drive to San Sebastián, just over the Spanish border. Known for fantastic food, we were going eating!
After our spontaneous two hour hike we decided to do a little tapas tasting. We struck gold on our first stop with the most amazing selection of tapas possible.
After two days exploring La Rochelle and Ile de Re, we set off to Biarritz.
After a very hot day we cooled off in St Martin, a beautiful town halfway down the island before enjoying an aperitif in La Flotte sitting by the port.
Having managed to climb down the stepladder from the mezzanine bed, we set off to explore the nearby island of Ile de Re.
After the tranquility of the chateau and the picnic among sunflowers, La Rochelle took us by surprise.
