On our walk towards San Juan de Gaztelugatxe we found a restaurant. We had a light breakfast and knew we'd need some food in order to continue on our journey.

Unfortunately we couldn't make the walk to the small church because the ground was slippery due to the rain.

n 2010, we took a trip to Spain, stopping in Madrid and Bilbao.  While in Bilbao we rented a car and drove to a few places in the Basque country and crossed over into France.  I found that every establishment seasoned their batatas bravas a little differently and I had to try them at every restaurant and bar we stopped in.  The food in the Basque country was particularly delicious, the tapas differed from the standard fare that was available in Madrid.
