Another treat during my San Sebastián Getaway was finally getting to meet Caroline (aka @floweries1) and her husband Steve. We’ve been Twitter pals for ages and they have already chalked up 11 visits to Donostia, so when I found out our next visits were going to coincide we made plans to meet up. It was a great evening out and now I am looking forward to when they are FINALLY going to visit Sevilla with friends in November.
On my second night in San Sebastián was taken out by Gabriella’s lovely colleague and “right hand” Katharine from Tenedor Tours. Katharine and I have “known” each other by email for awhile now, so it was nice to put a face to the name, but really especially nice to be in her company for the evening.
I was taken to bars I hadn’t previously been to with Gabriella, and the surprise dish of the night was the pork snout salad. We had a great time, talking about food and wine, and some of the history of San Sebastián and the Basque Country… but also about pets, hair, back problems and WHATEVER. You know, just like on the best food tours ;). Hoping that Katharine will visit Sevilla soon so I can return the favour.
