48 Hours in San Sebastian

48 Hours in San Sebastian, San Sebastian, Spain (B)

In the couple of weeks leading up to my trip to Bilbao and San Sebastián with Annie, there had been unhappy forebodings of terrible weather: cold temperatures and heavy rain dominating our long weekend break. It’s hard to feel positive. Spain at the end of April should be warm and sunny; maybe not sunbathing weather but certainly T-shirts and maybe even a touch of suncream. But as it happened, there was only a little rain during the trip. There were some grey skies but also quite a few hours of sunshine.

We’d again booked our hotel through British Airways – the Husa Europa, a 3* hotel for which we paid £75 a night for the room. It was an easy 10-minute walk from the bus terminus and when we arrived we received a warm welcome. The friendly guy on reception (who reminded me a little of Inspector Montalbano on TV, even though he was Spanish and not Italian) said he’d given us their best room. We weren’t sure why but it was indeed a lovely room – quite big with an old, original fireplace and two small balconies.
