5 Things to Do in San Sebastian

San Sebastián or Donostia as Basques call it, a charming city located in the Basque Country region is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Spain. And there are more than one reasons why – its unforgettably beautiful beaches La Concha, Zurriola, Ondarreta and the small island beach of Santa Clara, alluring architecture, taste buds spoiling tapas (or pintxos as they call them in Basque country), relaxing restaurants in old city and the list goes on.

Even though the city is quite small and cozy, events such as the San Sebastián International Film Festival, attended by many celebrities, have given it an international recognition. San Sebastián, along with Wrocław, Poland, was chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2016.

If you are thinking of visiting this beautiful city and get to know more about Basque culture you should check out these top 5 things to do in San Sebastian.

The Real Bali: Ugly Truth And What to Love

When I first arrived in Bali I was surprised by what I saw. I have always imagined that this would be the greenest, most relaxing, quiet place on earth. At least that’s what most of the photos on Google search appear. But that wasn’t my first impression at all. Busy traffic, polluted air and crowded, loud streets would be more like it. But despite the first impression I fell in love with it later. In this article I want to tell you about the real Bali – the good and the bad. Things that people don’t post on their IG profiles or Facebook walls and also what made me love Bali after all.

Nusa Lembongan: Surf Eat Sleep Repeat

Nusa Lembongan is a small island that often stays unnoticed in the shadows of its bigger neighbor Bali. We think it’s underrated. I first went there a few years ago and I thought then – Yes, that’s the paradise like place on earth I was looking for! – unlike Bali, which was my first stop on the trip. To be honest I was a little bit disappointed when I first saw Bali –  crowded, polluted, not exactly the green, peaceful scenery I have always imagined (since most of the IG posts and Google searches are like that). However I managed to get to love Bali. But that is another story. So let’s get back to Nusa Lembongan surf trip.

From Travel Addiction to Travel Love

People often say they are travel addicts in a positive manner. Still after researching this topic it got me thinking – is travel addiction a real thing? And if so is it always so innocent and fun as it sounds? Or maybe it can get ugly like all addictions.

Traveling fills you with joy and excitement of what will happen next. It makes your life adventurous. Then there is a curiosity of what new surprising things you will see and new people you will meet. And the moment you first see those places or do something crazy you haven’t done before like jump into a sea from a 18 m high cliff, taste something that you didn’t think was edible or join locals in their rituals is indescribable. The sense of feeling something new, something unexperienced before flows all the way from your head to toes and vice versa. It just takes over you. And you start to crave for more.

This group of pristine islands consisting of about ten islands (including the two largest: Gigantes Sur and Gigantes Norte) is the second most underestimated dreamlike destination I found at the Province of Iloilo (first one being Islands of Concepcion). Well Gigantes Islands are not a hidden gem compared to Concepcion however not so many tourists know about them probably due their remote location at the northernmost point of Iloilo Province.
