A Basque Diary – Living in Hondarribia, Spain

I love Hondarribia

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 made very welcome and have made some great friends. It is going to be 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.

If you want to hear when the Basque Diary book comes out, sign up to my illustrated epistle at the bottom of the page. New illustrations go up on  Instagram and Facebook each week, but here are some samples:
