Flashback Friday: San Sebastian

The Concha beach in San Sebastian stands right in the centre of the city, and is considered to be one of the best city beaches in Europe. On one side, you'll find the Urgull mountain, and on the other is the Igueldo mountain. The beach is huge, and a great place for a lovely coastline walk. If you're going to visit, you'll need a place to stay....and why not make it a glamorous one?

The Astoria 7 is full of proper Hollywood glamour - why? Well why click here to flashback to to see my original post to find out!

Friday's Lightbulb: San Francisco

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, when around 100,000 young people flocked to the Haight-Ashbury area of San Francisco in 1967. An underground alternative youth culture had been brewing in America and Europe for several year but for that summer, the focus was San Francisco.

Many events have been planned to mark the occasion, but it's such a fantastic city you'll have plenty to discover even if you don't make it to those events. While anyone can find the Golden Gate Bridge or Alcatraz, there are plenty of hidden gems to discover.

Sutro Baths is one of those hidden gems. Designed by self-made millionaire Adolph Sutro in 1894, this used to be the world's largest indoor swimming pool. During high tide, the ocean could fill the pools in just an hour! The pools closed during the Great Depression, but the structure still exists as ruins in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

The ornate Victorian homes in San Fran will blow you away. They're painted in beautiful colours and are well worth a visit. There's no time like the present to take a Flower Power tour to find out more about the Summer of Love. If you visit, just make sure you wear a flower in your hair!
