Into Spain

After leaving Foix, we had a stunning drive, on yet another sunny day, over the snow covered Pyrenees, our trusty little van went like a trouper. We had lunch in Andorra which is a tiny little country right in the middle of the mountains. When you have lunch at a restaurant you are automatically served a plate of chips and a glass of wine. We (Anna) randomly picked two things off the menu, which turned out to be quite good (and not the plate of baby squid someone else got!).
We left Andorra and started going towards Barcelona, before deciding not to go any further south. We had a great drive through northern Spain on some fairly minor roads heading across to the coast. We saw lots of camping grounds - until we needed one. After driving for a couple of hours in the dark we gave up and parked on the side of the road on a forestry road. Thankfully no one told us off. The next day we reached the coast, almost left without having Tapas but then miracle of miracles we spotted a restaurant right before the boarder (200m!) so had an early lunch.
