5 Best Pinxtos in San Sebastian

Chris and I recently got hitched - whoop! We had our wedding in South West France, at my mum's house, and having driven down with our car, decided to take a mini-moon a bit further along the coast in San Sebastian.

Famed for it's food, San Sebastian promised big things to foodies like Chris and myself and boy did it deliver. Michelin star restaurants aside (more on this in another post), it was the variety and novelty of the many pinxtos bars that we really enjoyed and we like to think that our multiple tasting evenings gave us good authority to choose our five all time faves.

A Spa Experience at La Perla, San Sebastian

On the first morning of our San Sebastian mini moon, Chris surprised me with the revelation that we were booked in to spend our afternoon at the city's 100 year old, La Perla, sea front spa  - a couple of hours of relaxing in the various pools and steam rooms, followed by an hour long full body massage. On a grey and rainy day, and with the stresses and strains from the wedding still taking their toll on my aching muscles, it was exactly what the doctor ordered.
