A San Sebastian Spa Day

The next day in San Sebastian we spent the morning at La Perla, a spa right on the beach in the center of the San Sebastian bay. The spa uses ocean water and is a full circuit of hot tubs to relax all the different muscles in the body. We all felt very relaxed afterwards and luckily the sun was shining so we headed just outside to the beach to lay in the sun and take a nap. 
As daylight was drawing to a close we took the funicular to the top of a mountain right in the bay for a good view of the city. San Sebastian really is quite beautiful!

There is also a theme park at the top of the funicular. Edu even confessed he had a birthday party here once as a child. It was originally built in the 1920's and hasn't been updated almost at all which was endearing but also a little bit scary. The guys talked me into taking the roller coaster which was at the very top of the mountain hanging over cliffs and steered by the guy in the picture below. The roller coaster break is a handbrake and the guy is just smoking his cigar, no big deal. Edu thinks this is the same guy it's always been.
Luckily, we all survived the scary roller coaster! :)
Love Always,
