Pamplona

My favorite Spanish breakfast

Pamplona Spain

Tortilla Espagnole is eggs and potatoes and this one they layered with ham and cheese. They serve it room temperature and I still love it.

Hemingway spent quite a bit of time in Pamplona over the years and we ate breakfast at Cafe Iruna, his hang out place to write and drink. They’ve put a statue of him at his favorite spot at the bar.

We spent most of the day wandering around Pamplona. They have the oldest and most intact citadel in Europe, originally built in 48AD, which they turned into a modern art museum.

Ingenious.

This is the famous street curve in the Running of the Bulls route:

I think the bulls rarely have trouble getting around the bend but the humans have a hard time getting out of their way…

Corey and Kaitlyn, out.

San Sebastian

The Seminario hotel

Spanish Basque country

Sort of small and easily overlooked, don’t you think?

And speaking of small, Spanish coffees are little.

I always order a bunch of them…

Driving through Basque country means the two languages you see in signs are Spanish and Euskara. English… not so much.

We spent a relaxed day in San Sebastian on the northern Atlantic coast of Spain.

 

 

Spain

A grey cloudy day and the water was COLD.

Such a pretty little place. I wish we’d had more time there.

Tomorrow, Papa Hemingway and Pamplona
