Over the previous week, under drizzle and burst of sunshine, I’ve been exploring the Basque Country: Zumaia, Getaria, Donostia-San Sebastian & beyond (scroll down to see the photos).

Tucked away along the coast of Gipuzkoa province in the autonomous community of the Basque Country in the North of Spain, the autumn sunlight streams down on the blue sea, the green txakoli-covered fields, and the sheep spotted hills, as a few pilgrims hike past with St. James sea shells on their back packs.
Yesterday something special in the waves that had arrived from across the ocean brought people together, new friends. Among the waves of Zarautz, Derek Rabelo and Aitor Francesena, who surf without sight, taught us something incredibly important.
“I see everything that you see, but in another way.”

Love the life you live, and live the life you love.
Life rolls & thunders in with surprises. This is my day in photos. From the hilltops of Getaria along the coast to Zarautz speed skating teams pushed and pulled teammates under sun and rain, and when I headed to Zumaia others were floating on water.
