Phase 7: (from Toledo) to San Sebastian

This is really a beautiful and happy place - and how I nearly slept in the same room as Ursula Andress.

sunny 19 °C
View Southern road trip on moustache17's travel map.

The hotel in SS was the best during this trip.
Astoria 7 has a film theme throughout the whole hotel.
Rooms are decorated in name of a film actor/actress - and the signs in the hallway.
I know - I know, Ursula was born 1934 and now 82 years old.
But I must admit she was a hot babe in one of the earlier Bond Film - everyone of my age should admit.
The hotel was full so I could not make a pick.
Ursula was next door, I had to settle for the Coen Brothers (directors of the Big Lebowski).
A lot less sexy but sometimes life can be hard.

San Sebastian is truly a fantastic place.
It is so well laid out and has so many green areas.
As well as one of the best city-beaches, great pincho (tapa) bars.
I really loved it and did hours of walking.
This is a must for all of you.

I am just showing some random pictures.
If ever you go, check all the tourists guides for full introduction - my pictures are just an impression.

The food was indeed also great and a step up from all the other tapa bars in other cities I have been.

At this point of the trip I start thinking about home.
I normally had to choose another stop - Bordeaux/Pau/Tours, whatever.
However, the Easter crowds are out - San Sebastian was full of people and families so one can expect the other touristic cities will be full as well.
Not much guessing - I had half a look at the hotel prices in these potential stops.....

Also my stomach is getting upset with regularly eating out and drinks..... too much is too much.
It is Thursday 22H now, I will hit the road tomorrow and see how it goes.
Probably head home - stop on the road if tired.
Will see.

Cheers
