San Sebastian | Spain

San Sebastian, or Donostia, is another city that we had previously visited but we spent a few days here on our trip because: pintxos. The Spanish lay claim to tapas but the Basques take it to a whole other level with their version: bigger, tastier and far more inventive than mere tapas, pintxos are more than just a pre-dinner snack or accompaniment to a few drinks.

Extremadura | Spain

So it didn´t take us long to find Oviedo´s Mercado, which is where we spent most of our time (and our money). The Asturians are very much into super-stinky blue cheese and cured meats… loads of cured meats. This is not a vegetarian friendly destination, but lucky for us we´re not (vegetarians) and a fair amount of our returning luggage was filled with jamon.
