The parador was in a breath taking location on the Lost Mountain (Monte Perdido) with waterfalls right outside our windows.

... locating the B&B booked a couple of days earlier. After a phone call, we were told to head on a zig zagging road up a mountain. This was one of the steepest ascents I have ever driven. The views above and below were spectacular.
After more difficulty we finally found the accommodation. And WOW, what a location. This charming old farmhouse was perched right on the side of a cliff with uninterrupted 180 degree views over the Pyrenees. And ...

No heavy traffic on the country roads. Cant get over how vast the country is. Very friendly and fun to share a laugh with. Pit stop for lunch in a small town. First one we ...
