EuropaFM

by Emily Benjamin

There isn’t a lot to say in this post. All I can say is that these artists took up 95% of the airtime on EuropaFM in Spain, which was the only English music station available across the whole country. Needless to say, after a few thousand kilometres, I never want to hear these artists again*.

Jason DeRulo
Usher
Katy Perry
Ke$ha
Michael Jackson
Jessie J feat. Bob(?) – whatever, the song was Price Tag
Nelly Furtado
Shakira
Enrique Iglesias

*Except Katy Perry’s Firework. That song is undeniably catchy. Even Monkey loves it.

San Sebastian

by Emily Benjamin

When planning for our time in Spain, I had my heart set on San Sebastian. I remember reading about it having one of the best inner-city beaches in all of Europe, beautiful views and delicious food, and it lived up to the hype. Although the weather wasn’t kind to us the whole time we were there, we made the most of the sun while it was out and wandered the streets, spent time on the beach and hiked up a small mountain to enjoy the views. Eventually we tracked down a restaurant called La Cuchara, and feasted on the best tapas I’ve ever tasted. If you can find the place, it is absolutely worth it – I’m only disappointed we didn’t find it sooner! I took a bit of a break with photos while I was there, but managed to capture this small set before we packed up and headed for Rio de Janeiro.
