AD-98 – Andorra trip
Date of travel: May 19 – June 2, 1998
Early on May 19 I left Vista in rented car for San Diego airport. From there I flew via St. Louis and New York to Barcelona, SPAIN, where early in the morning on May 20. It took 3.5 days sightseeing of Barcelona on my own visiting all the interesting places incl. Sagrada Familia, a cathedral by Gaudi, which is being built since the 20th and is still far from finished.
In the afternoon on May 23 I took a bus from Barcelona to ANDORRA high in the Pyrenees Mountains to visit a Czech family living there for years. In the next 4 days with their help I saw most of Andorra la Vella, the country capital, visited over 2300 m high mountains and took a trip to Llivia, a Spanish enclave within France close to Andorra.
On May 28 this Czech family took me on a 5 day trip in their mobile home around the Pyrenees Mts. After passing Pas de la Casa we entered FRANCE continuing to Foix, St.Giron and Tarbes sleeping in campings. On May 29 we reached Lourdes (here I spent a part of an afternoon visiting the holy place of Catholics). After that we drove to Oloron and Bedous. On May 31 we crossed the Pyrenees to SPAIN and going through Jaca and Huesca we came to Lerida. Then to Tarragona at the Mediterranean Sea.
In the morning on June 2 I took a plane from Barcelona via New York and St. Louis to San Diego. To Vista I got in a rented car.
