We left this morning on time from The Midi Pyrènèes and now headed for 'the' Pyrènèes! About 300km but we knew the last part of the roads would be windy and slower so we gave ourselves 5hrs for the trip. The Motorway through Toulouse and down to Tarascon was fast and efficient. We stopped their for lunch as it was a beautiful town right between the cliffs at the start or the Pyrènèes. After lunch ...
... the other side of the town, and saw the huge Caldera spa, a huge shard of glass pointing into the sky, before heading back towards the old part of town and eventually my bus back to Barcelona.
The town isn't very big, and so it didn't take long to see it, but it was a fun experience, and if you love mountains, skiing or luxury shopping then it's worth the visit.

One of the members of the old aristocratic family who owned the chateau for a number of generations came to visit the weekend before last. He was born in 1940, lived here until 1950 when his father died and his mother moved the family to Paris, and he only visited again in the summer of 1952 for a couple of summer months. His memory of the chateau ...
... an Andorra police officer which will make a nice addition to his collection.
We then jumped in the car and headed west about 25km to the town of La Seu d'Urgell in Spain. While crossing the border we were stopped by the Spanish Police checking to make sure we were not bringing in goods over the duty free allowance and Nathan took the opportunity to get his second badge for the morning. It was interesting in that as soon as we crossed the border ...
... litre of gin cost about 3 euro in the supermarket and electronic goods such as phones, cameras etc. However, the most interesting things were saw for sale at many shops were replica pistols that fired pellets, taser devices, extendable ASP batons, peppers spray and handcuffs.
We ended the night with a wonderful meal in a Spanish restaurant. Hopefully tomorrow we will get the chance to slip into Spain as well as a play in the snow.
