Today I want to tell you about my first escape into the nature after testing negative upon arriving to Spain. As you might remember from my previous post, returning from Bolivia in the middle of the COVID pandemic wasn't easy and I had missed my friends and being outdoors so much. This weekend I had the perfect opportunity to catch up with them all in the biggest mountain close to home: Peñas de Aya. Stay tuned if you want to learn all you can do here!
After being in lockdown for four months in Bolivia, we managed to travel back home to Spain in the middle of the COVID-19 global pandemic. I'm happy to report we're now safe and sound with our families! If you would like to know what it was like to get from our home in Tarija to Santa Cruz and then all the way to Spain, keep on reading.
After visiting Córdoba and Priego de Córdoba with my in-laws and some family friends, we all came to Irún, my hometown in the Basque Country. We spent a few days here altogether, enjoying great food and sightseeing lovely places such as Getaria, Zumaia, San Sebastián, Lesaka or Hendaye. Curious to know all there is to see in this area?
Looking for the best grilled fish in Getaria? Look no further. Restaurante Iribar is an outstanding option if you're visiting this charming fishing village and want to try the delicacies of Basque food. Read my restaurant review to learn how to get there, the concept behind this traditional grill house and what to eat in order to enjoy a memorable experience.
Every time I go back home I try to stop by Fuenterrabía, and this time around was no exception. This fishing village is one of the most beautiful in the Basque Country and the food is delicious! Besides, the village celebrated its yearly Alarde while I was there at the beginning of September.
While we were back home, I took the opportunity to show my boyfriend around some places he didn't know yet. This time we went to Hendaye, Socoa and Biarritz, some of my favorite spots in the French Basque Country.
