San Sebastian...hearing the name of that city just brings back good memories of relaxation and beautiful breath-taking views. My photos are just proof of that! I was lucky to have a clear blue sky for 2 days and it just brought out the true beauty of this city. The misty sunset was like nothing else I'd seen. I would sit down on top of Mount Igueldo and look out onto Playa De La Concha, the city and mountains in the distance.

San Sebastian is very safe. You can walk at any hour alone and still be safe. It is very hard to find an internet cafe though :/ I had trouble with the map I was given and quite easily lost my way. Street signs seemed rare - sometimes just bolted to the building on the corner.
Playa De La Concha - beautiful weather :D
I don't know a word of Spanish and got by on bare minimum. Luckily David the hostel owner could tell me anything I asked. It was difficult ordering on the menu. It was all sign language! But it was an experience. Not many people speak English there. It would be helpful to know a little Spanish, if you go.

I got some bargains! Very good quality I'd be hard-pressed to find in Australia for the same price. The only downside was that most of the shops seemed to be closed, even on weekdays. They just didn't seem as inviting as some other cities.

I met some great friends one night I was staying there. We were very enthusiastic travellers, even when the weather kept changing it's mind. Had great fun hiking up and down the 2 mountains and buying steak for Ryan to cook for us (he is a chef). Aaron taught us a card game, which I can't remember how to play but we played for about 2 hours.

It was fun and therapeutic, but I'm glad that I stayed for 4 days. It as enough for me. I need a nightlife, which unfortunately San Sebastian could not provide.
