Springtime here in Basque Country is slowly showing signs of itself: in rare days of sunshine, trees in bloom, and in the every-optimistic Basques not letting anything deter them from enjoying glasses of txakolí in the streets. I’m excited for the days to warm up and get a bit drier (fingers crossed or I’ll be booking flights to Tenerife!) so I can get out and explore more of my new home. Last week, I revisited Zarautz, home to my favorite Basque chef, Karlos Arguiñano, and went to a new Basque village named Getaria; famous for being the birthplace of Cristóbal Balenciaga as well as grilling the best fish this side of the Pyrenees.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
