Ahh this is the South of France that we had hoped for! A clear blue sky with only the occasional white cloud scudding across . We set out , this time intent on a train journey, to Hendaye, a little town on the French /Spanish border for a day at the beach.

The train we were on was not going along the coast as we thought, but rather it was a "milk run" route traveling south from Santiago to Ourense then east to Leon and Burgos before heading north to San Sebastain. We would basically be traveling ...
