Took advantage of the later than usual checkout time this morning and had breakfast back at Bar Swing (didn't really want to leave this lovely hotel). Then had a drive around San Sebastian trying to get to the top of Mt Urgull (view to the right!), but discovered the road only goes around the base. Still, interesting drive through the narrow one way streets in lots of traffic! One thing we learnt while we were here is that San Sebastian is not a little beachside resort town, but a big (population, not area) busy city that has a beach.

Then we were on our way to Calahorra. A 2(ish) hour drive from San Sebastian. Drove through the mountains (there seem to be lots of them here!), and past lots of small towns, most with churches on a hill and then to La Rioja, the wine region that includes Calahorra.

Made it to our hotel and met Kate there (a 2 minute walk from her apartment) in time for late (Spanish) lunch before she had to go to work. Then went to lovely restaurant for dinner. (Lucky she was there to translate).

(Yes, I know I am way late with this, but Wifi has been bad the last few places we have stayed!)
