The Pyrenees and San Sebastian, Spain

On Friday, 14th June we headed south from Villereal, in Aquitane, France to a small village in the Midi-Pyrenees called Antist.  I had no idea of what to expect when it came to the Pyrenees mountain range and found it breathtaking!

On Saturday 15th June, we then traveled through the Pyrenees mountains to Spain, we reached an altitude of over 1700m and at times we could only see a few metres in front of us. At the top above the clouds there were cyclists, a running race happening and people rock climbing.  The Spanish side was less cloudy, less steep and warmer.

We then headed to Pamplona for lunch passing a beautiful light blue lake along the way.  Here is a photo of the Running of the Bulls statue.

We finally made it to San Sebastian, which is a beautiful city on a bay with a great sandy beach which was very busy over this sunny, warm weekend. We have walked all around the bay and this morning we walked around the northern mount. We are staying off the motorbike for a few days to have a rest from it.

One of the reasons we came to San Sebastian was for the Tapas....and we have had so much fun going from bar to bar to check out what they have and to have a couple here and a couple there.

Tomorrow we leave San Sebastian and head to Andorra and then back into France, to Provence and the Alps.

Adios amigos!
