We walked past the hotel initially, as it doesn't have a big sign out of the front. The staff at the service desk were very friendly and helpful. I did get a big shock when I saw my single room at first, as it was extremely basic. There was a small single bed, very narrow room, but an enormous bathroom. The shower was on the floor level, which meant that water escaped under the shower curtain and went all over the tiles on the floor. However, I managed to cope with that. The room was clean and I didn't spend much time in there anyway. It would have been good to have had wifi in the bedrooms, but there are areas downstairs where you can acess it. The hotel is in a great location, with dozens of restaurants just down the street. It is also within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions by the seaport. It is also close to trams, buses and trains. The price was low and did include a basic breakfast of bread, rolls, butter, jams and tea or coffee. It cost me less than 200 euros for 4 nights' accommodation, which is pretty good value.

... heard when, at Heathrow, she asked, 'where's my gate'. So Gatwick = F&^*-UP. Example, Day 2 -- we Gatwicked by leaving a bag behind at the hotel when we went to the airport. But of course, this definition morphed over time. So now, it means either it's original meaning, or, it means, 'get me out of here'. So you can call Gatwick in a bar, on a bus, in a store. Whatever. If you need to leave, you can Gatwick.
... San Sebastián, and move on to another country (Portugal). We caught a plane over to a place called Lisbon in Portugal. We caught a bus from the airport to the inner city and then walked through the old cobble stone streets of Alfama to our apartment. We went out for dinner, and came back to our apartment and went to bed. That leads me to where I am now, about to discover a whole new part of ...
... then I am eating very quickly at home before getting back on the computer to continue working.
Meanwhile in Portugal: Coffee before 8? Good luck finding somewhere open. To-go food? Forget about it. Breakfast is light, consisting of a piece of bread with jam and butter accompanied by a coffee and some orange juice. We sit down, eat together, and engage in conversation lasting at least 1 hour. There are more ...
... at the top and carry things down to our place when we return and point ourselves in the other direction. Tony is trading in this car for another (no oomph and the noises coming out if sound, well, not so good). Off we go to the village in "The Rattler".
We parked near a local cafe that was mentioned to us, where "Paulo" speaks English. Nice man who directed us behind his cafe/bar to a restaurant for lunch; "Refugio do Ciclista" run by some local ladies. To ...
Well I think the word to summarize this weekend is EVENTFUL.
From Zaragoza, we used blablacar to get to Madrid. We met a 29 year old guy from the south of Spain. He was very fun. We literally talked the whole ride, and played and sang to music. It was unfortunate that Michelle doesn't speak much Spanish and the guy didn't speak any English. When we got to the Madrid we had a bit if time to eat then take our flight. It was only 45 minutes but Portugal is an ...
