    The website Culinary Backstreets just published this article Basque Country, Bite by Bite that I thought some would enjoy.

    http://culinarybackstreets.com/cities-category/barcelona/2017/cb-on-the-road-31/

    Whether your travels to or from the Camino take you through San Sebastian or not, the focus of the article is on the food, and in particular the pinxtos, one can find all through the Basque region. For me, one of the great cultural rewards of spending time in Spain was enjoying the food so unique to this area from the jamon iberico to the tortillas to the bacalao. Buen provecho!

    Hey Ampiji - Glad you found the post helpful. As pilgrims, we face a number of challenges from the physical to the psychological to the spiritual as we walk. As travelers, I suggest that we face similar eye-opening opportunities as we visit new lands far from our home. In that sense, we're all pilgrims whether we're walking a Camino or not. We can learn so much not just about others, but about ourselves as well in our daily interactions with new faces in new places.

    To travel in Spain is a genuine treat! Their deep historical roots are apparent in nearly every town you enter. The rich cultural heritage of this part of the world, including the glorious food, can open eyes and hearts to ways that may be different from our own and leave us all just a bit richer for having traveled through and been welcomed as guests by the many wonderful people we meet along the Way. Enjoy your Camino del Norte!
