great meetings

met a fabulous couchsurfer in zarautz the last day there and he taught me so much about the city, the area, these banners i´ve been seeing everywhere, yada yada yada. a ridiculously gracious host, he gave me loads of new music and also movies in spanish. apparently the area there is their north coast – the surfing area of spain. their so-cal 😉 Aitor´s leaving in September to go surf in Australia for a year and then surf Africa for two years. Amazing.

Yesterday i walked to Zumaia and met for incredible (albeit seemingly sketchy at first) pilgrims who i spent the afternoon with at the beach. Roberto, a quiet and mysterious Basque man. Fernando (or ´Nando) a hilarious Galecian backpacker. Pablo, a Czech man with a sweet little puppy named Aquí (castillian for “here”, so when you call him you´re saying “aquí, Aquí!!” “here, Here!!”) and then Boris, a 27year old packer with killer blonde dreads.

Last night I took a train to meet Caylin in Bilbao, but i´m going to take a train back to where I left off and continue my journey and hopefully catch up and walk with those guys some as well.
