uno2trac #Jazzaldia is one of the best times to be in San Sebastian. The hills are indeed alive with the sound of music! 🐏🐖🐄As are the streets, the beaches, the pintxos bars. Life is magical in this city of bon vivants and I love returning 'home' time and time again to the comfort of food, friends, nature and the wonders of serendipity and surprise. 5h

uno2trac Back to the classics. Fabada is a traditional Asturian bean stew with pork, often accompanied with ++ pork goodies such as the morcilla (blood sausage), tocino (smoked ham) and chorizo. At Casa Gerardo, they also gave us a side of croquetas...never a bad idea when in Spain. This is a homey, wintry, childhood dish for many in Northern Spain and Portugal beause of its Portuguese origins. Former Portuguese colonies (i.e. Brasil) serve similar dishes like Fabada's sub-equatorial cousin, Feijoada. Do you know other variations of the #Fabada? 2d

uno2trac So fortunate we are to have landed in Santiago during such a special time of music, dance, food, and arts celebration in the region. Every evening was a delightful multi-sensory surprise to the ears, eyes and mouth as revelers rejoiced in La Fiesta de Santiago. Here we watched a dance similar to one in Portugal @djdesousa14. 2d

uno2trac Castro de Baroña in Galícia, a winding and misty hike to enjoy the Celtic settlement ruins. The clear turqoise sea and fine grain sand beaches here in Galicia are refreshing and spectacular, even on an overcast day like this. 2d

uno2trac Praia de Catedrais, where families, couples and friends go to explore the caves, discover sea creatures in their natural habitats, and young summer camp children swim from one cove to another. Curious and active European beach life here is #mykindaawesome. 86 beach bums. 3d

uno2trac Percebes Also known as goose barnacles, these are delicacies in Spain, particularly in Galícia. With a razor clam-esque texture and juicy, sweet sea flavor, they are one of my favorite seafoods. My friends have seen them in Korea too. Where else have you had goose barnacles and how are they prepared? Gallegos blanch them in boiling water. I've also had them wood-grilled. 3d

uno2trac Every day we witnessed the smiles, camraderie, cheers, tears and selfies of those finishing their pilgrimmage on the Camino de Santiago. It is quite an inspiring and enlivening experience, akin to cheering on friends participating in the Boston Marathon. Folks celebrate in the historical cathedral squares with photos, song, music, dancing, pintxos and libations. Que vida!! Galicia is a special place indeed. 6d

uno2trac Gracias Jesus @catite0906 for showing us hospitality in so many forms: oranges for juicing in the morning, the best tortilla española in town, introducing us to chef friends like the fine folks at Casa Marcial and Pepe at A Barrola, and for taking us on sneak peeks like this one inside the Parador, down this hallway to the room where the Pope stayed. How fortunate we are to meet local friends in a foreign city, with whom we can break bread, share stories, and make adventures we will always remember. 1w

uno2trac Santiago tiene su encanto. The streets are bustling with local artists, performing musicians, hikers from all over the world who are beaming as they finish El Camino, and folks like us looking for the next delicious pintxo. Every day, every hour is a celebration here. Oh, and we happened to arrive during a festival, so there are live dance and music concerts around town all week! Que mal vivimos... 1w

uno2trac Penedès is a region in Catalunya renowned for its cava production. The steep hills are quite arid and stony, as are winding dirt paths between grapevine plots. We climbed down a wet soil path with Joan to discover a gem of an oasis where local mountain bikers, teenagers, and hikers alike come to take a dip, cliff jump, or like us, cup a refreshing gulp of natural spring water in our hands on a scorching summer afternoon. Adventures of a lifetime... 1w

uno2trac We Indiana Jones'd it around the hilly, dirt paths of the vast vineyard in his Land Rover. Joan taught us to forage the surrounding terroir and encouraged us to taste the buds of these wine vines; they were like juicy Coca Cola. 1w

uno2trac Where else in the world do you find friends and llangostinos like these? @pescadors_tapadors took good care of our table of 8 despite our hilarious attempt at reserving a table under "Joan Bosch", only to have the REAL Joan Bosch in town show up and sit behind us. 2w
