Trading alla Siciliana
This time i want to talk about one of those surf trip that you decide to take even if your budget doesn’t even allow you to think about traveling.
Sometimes the will of surfing is so strong that you don’t think about the consequences of being far from home without money in your pocket. That’s what me and Giacomo did in august 2007 when we decided to go back to our beloved Basque Country to spend ten wild days before reach our girlfriends in two different locations.
As usual we packed our car with so much stuff that it seemed like we robbed a Wal-Mart warehouse…stuff pretty much useless if you have to spend only ten days
Anyway that’s why we insist so much with the Basque Country
It’s still a 16-hours drive but definitely worth it and i think that this picture doesn’t need comments.
After the all day spent in the water we would have sold our bodies
in order to have a place to sleep.
Only because we wasn’t ready for a huge step like this we decided to trade
a dinner for a bed…
Our host was a guy named Alan that seemed pretty interested in our
Pasta alla Siciliana and in case you will need to find a roof over your head you
could use this recipe
