A Basque Diary – Living in Hondarribia, Spain

Duncan, Billie and I came to the Basque Country to learn Spanish. We picked Hondarribia as the place to live because it has the same kind of things to offer as Donostia-San Sebastian: excellent food & wine, beaches, and a pretty old town. But it is a lot smaller and less touristy. We have been welcomed and have made some great friends. It is a wrench to leave this summer. Before doing so, I resolved to create a souvenir of our time here by augmenting my written diary (journal) with an illustrated one.

The Ingram Spark version of A Basque Diary is smaller than the Amazon Createspace one. They have very similar covers, other than the size, but the large Createspace version has more vibrant colours inside, as the small Ingram version is more matt.
