Pays Basque, Here We Come

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

And there will be a festival happening when we’re there. Don’t you hate when that happens?
