The Arbuturian is, as they call themselves, “an award-winning magazine for the globetrotting connoisseur with an appetite for adventure and a taste for the highlife.”
They have a long series of articles dedicated to the Basques, but we wanted to focus on one: a tour of the Basque Coast from Saint-Jean-de-Luz to San Sebastian, and the three articles Tom Garton penned about it.
We liked it, not only for its content, but also for its presentation of a Basque Country with no artificial divisions, presenting Labourd and Gipuzkoa as part of the same reality.
It’s obvious they like “high-quality” traveling, and that they enjoyed it. We just hope they’ll come back again soon, to discover even more about our great country.
