Last night I felt so good and relaxed after the walk on the waves by the beach, the strong massage and the good dinner that I could not sleep for a long time.

No I actually didn't loose my bathing suit top in the sea, however, one cultural difference that I noticed while traveling to the beaches of San Sebastian, is that it is normal for women and girls not to wear a bathing suit top.
