Trip Report Trip Report: two sisters and friends visit San Sebastian and Bilbao

Jump to last reply

Last May, my sister and I spent a fabulous week in San Sebastian and Bilbao, delighting in all of the treats these cities have to offer – stunning architecture, friendly people and wonderful food and wine. We enjoyed it so much that we decided to visit again this May, and this time brought along two of our dear friends for the ride.

We did have some reluctance to visit someplace we already had so recently when there are still so many places on "the list", but we quickly got over that as we realized there were plenty of things we hadn't done yet in San Se, plus it was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing trips we've had. When I found some decent airfares and reasonably priced apartments, we quickly decided that we were ready and excited for a return visit.

Since I reported on our trip last year, I’ll keep this one brief and just hit the highlights and new things. Here’s the link to that report for reference

Last year, we were lucky to have a week of sunshine and warm temps. We must have used up all of our luck on that trip, because this time around, it started raining at 9PM on our arrival day, Friday, and didn’t stop until Tuesday evening. It was non-stop, driving rain, with the extra treat of howling winds on Monday that made it challenging to walk anywhere near the water. It made me really appreciate our little travel group, though, because we all joked and laughed about it, but no one let the crummy weather get them down, and when the sun finally appeared on Tuesday evening to shine upon us for our last two days, I can assure you we appreciated every moment of it.
