After a week in the French side of the Basque Country I feel renewed.
The Basque country is a place close to my heart, as my ancestors came from there. For the past few years, I have been taking at least a week a year to visit this wonderful land where you can always find something fun to do regardless of the weather. And if you are feeling lazy, well, there is no problem neither, why not enjoy a short boat trip and go to the Spanish side of the Basque Country for a tapas dinner and some lazing around. The trip only costs 1 euro 80 cents per person and lasts about 5 minutes. During the summer the service is available every 15 minutes until 1am. So, there is no excuse to skip a trip to the Spanish side to visit the beautiful town of Hondarribia -also known as Fuenterrabía by the Spanish.
