We drove to Boltana today. We stopped for shopping and a coffee in Vielha on one of the main link routes across the Pyrenees from France to Spain. We watched HGV's thunder past us.
The road to Boltana took us along some very scenic roads, across mountain passes and through deep gorges. The road through the gorge was narrow with lots of twists and turns. Interesting in its own right but even more interesting ...
... understand it all because of her accent but it was neat to see. At the top, there were so many vultures flying around. Wow they have a huge wingspan! Quite remarkable the way they soared through the air.

... in S Spain but once left alone we had to manage and we did. Sounds like a life reversal. Our main aim was for the next few days to get away from the cities and crowds and we have. The photos tell it all. Tomorrow we will be staying at a very old monastery only 70 kms from Barcelona for 2 nights. Then 4 nights in Barcelona and then onto London for 2 nights.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Santa Maria de Alquezar
Arrived in the rain, first place we saw and we took it to get our selves and our bikes out of the rain. By the time we'd got to our room the rain had stopped and we'd paradise outside our window with a view of the old castle ruins and Iglesia de Santa Maria la Mayor - beautiful. Might not be able to sleep tonight knowing that the view is right there outside the window. Real picture postcard stuff.
