San Sebastian to Orio to Getaria

San Sebastian

The other day I left off with the girls having gone shopping and the boys hiking. We had made the better choice as they ended up hiking 17 km. in very hot humid weather with very steep inclines and declines. We, on the other hand, experienced the city, its people and culture. San Sebastian is an amazingly beautiful city, as well as vibrant and active.

While we meandered around town Rick was busy capturing sights of his own, albeit a bit more rural.DSC02186







Leaving San Sebastian we arrived in Orio, a small fishing village built in the 12th century.OrioDSC02229

Situated on the Bay of Biscay, Getaria is an old town with a mountain that is an islet, a port, beaches, the ocean, and rolling green hills of vineyards; the beauty of a wine region. DSC02293



Published by Along the Way: life begins at home yet our door is forever open to adventure, new places and new people. Welcome to our travels around the world.

This blog is really about us, my husband Rick and I and our travels. We are retired with grown children and two granddaughters. We travel...exhilarating in new experiences and places and all that each day holds. We believe that life begins to fade once we fail to live into it anymore. So come along the way with us and enjoy the journey too!
