I couldn’t possibly let the golden week go untapped. And so I found myself in the lovely city of San Sebastian,, a good 500 km north of Madrid, on Dos de Mayo, imbibing txikitos of txakoli which pairs off perfectly with the divine pintxos.

Visually, it's idyllic though windy. It's up in the Xistral Mountains of Galicia. And it's got the cheapest electricity in Spain because the municipal mayor thought it was time the people benefited from all the energy that was being generated by the windmills they're having to live with.
