Andorra

We arrived in a thick fog and it was not until we drove out of Pas de las Casas the morning after and reached over 2300 m.a.s.l we came out of the greyness and were greated by sun and incredible mountains. We continued through the amazing landscape down to Andorra la Vella, the capital of this small state. Both of us had missed that Andorra is a so called taxparadise, However overwhelmed by everything there was to buy we ended up buying nothing at all. Instead we explored the different valleys. On the saturday we drove to the view point Roc del Quer for breakfast and continued down in to Vallnord to hike. Quite soon after we hit the trail it became obvious that we got company by the competitors in the Andorra Ulta Trail, a five day trailrunning competition covering over 170km and 13500 posetive highmeters for the toughest participants. The landscape was really something else, high peaks and green slopes. I hope that we will be able to come back during the winter since the skiing according to some locals we talked to is really good and compared to the prices in Northern Europe really affordable.
