And so we reached the Surfers Paradise of Spain - San Sebastian - which was drenched with rain the day we turned up. Not a very auspicious start, but we were still excited to spend a few days relaxing by the beach before the craziness we knew Pamplona would be. We were staying near the surf beach with a lovely couple, Raul and Oihana, and their little dog Talo (a talo is a type of hot dog - which we found amusing).
