Barcelona Overnight Trip to San Sebastian

In March, CEA Barcelona had its two overnight trips to the captivating city, San Sebastian. San Sebastian is located in the Basque Country, which has borders with France and the Bay of Biscay. After taking a charter bus from Barcelona we headed off to the green and fertile Basque Country. It was a long ride, but once we stepped out of the bus in San Sebastian, it was well worth it. We were graced with a beautiful sunny day. After dropping our stuff off in our rooms, most of us headed out to Ondarreta Beach, which was only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Ondarreta Beach had quite a few people playing in the sand or taking in the sun. The next day CEA provided an insightful and intriguing tour of San Sebastian. We were able to choose whether we wanted the tour in Spanish or English. Half of the group went to have it in Spanish and the other half had it in English. We went in a funicular that brought us up to Mont Igueldo, which had a beautiful view of San Sebastian. After that we went down to see the famous work of art, “Peine del Viento”, which in English is “Wind Comb”. It was an interesting piece of artwork which was right next to an archeological phenomenon. The tour left us off in the old part of the city and our guides gave us great suggestions of where to eat “pintxos”. Pintxos are very similar to tapas and are a Basque delight. The traditional way of eating pintxos is in a bar, with friends while standing up. All in all, San Sebastian is a very magical city and we all wished we were able to stay longer, but alas one must go back to class.
