Sunset at Kursaal
Grabbing an ice cream from the Boulevard Ice Cream shop on the corner of the Kursaal couldn't be better accompanied by one of the most beautiful sunsets of Spain. Sitting on the wall along the mouth of the river where it meets the ocean, the sunset is always a delight to watch in this small beach city.

Midnight Stroll Along the River
When the night skies are clear, it's always lovely to walk along the river that passes through Donostia-San Sebastian. Called "Little Paris" for a reason, separated by the river resemble to romantic capital of Paris. The lights glowing and reflecting off the water offer an unforgettable ambiance! The Kursaal - the Cube on the beach - also glows in the evenings offering a guiding light towards the coast of the city.

Talk about bringing out your inner child! Take the funicular up Mount Igeldo for spectacular views of the beautiful city. Just 3euro up and down, it'll be worth the walk / bus ride (the local bus and tour bus both pass the front doors!) to take a ride up this old wooden funicular. On top you'll be greeted with great views and an old amusement park where you can jump on the wooden roller coaster or drive old-fashioned bumper cars!

Rain Cloud
Walking from Salthill to Galway along the Seapoint Promenade I felt the clouds start to pass over the sun and as I turned around I snapped this beautiful shot. It still takes my breath away every time I look at it. It reminds me of that exact moment: how happy I was, how beautiful the moment felt, how I was about to set off on a huge adventure all alone. I feel as if that one tree represents everything about me in that moment.
