So I was preparing our itinerary for our imminent trip to the Basque country and I thought I’d check in to this blog, my escape blog, where I post about my incredibly lucky travel-life. I am blessed, hallelujah.
So here’s the plan, I hope that you follow along and I really hope that my pictures are halfway as good as these.
We start in San Sebastian Spain
We are most excited for the pinxtos, or tapas…
After eating ourselves silly in Spain, it’s off to a little side trip to a little visited by my fellow countrymen and women part of France, the Béarn,
And the reason? See that town called Jurançon? They make some of our favorite white wine in the whole wide world.
So we’re going to walk and hike and relax and drink wine and take in this view (Below is the actual view from our b and b)
And we’re going to explore the vicinity
As we make our way from Jurançon to the coast, This is Basque country…
We will most definitely stop by Espelette, home of the infamous pepper
On our way to our seaside home for a week, Ciboure.
so lovely. Right next door to the equally lovely St Jean de Luz
Where we plan to eat lots of the sea’s bounty
and hopefully have some nice beach weather
And there will be a festival happening when we’re there. Don’t you hate when that happens?
And we may explore the vicinity. My landlord lives here:
And we may check out Bayonne
And who knows? I return to where I started. Feeling blessed, and wishing I could take everyone I love along. xo
