Good morning Andorra

After nearly three years of Swedish adventures, we moved on to Andorra for a break from it all. It was quite a drive from the baltic, but we made it without significant incident. This was the view from our flat on the outskirts of La Massana.

Walking to La Massana

We took a walk from our flat down into the town of La Massana, it is much shorter to go along the footpath than the road, and of course much steeper.

Soldeu

Further up the valley from Canillo is the skiing town of Soldeu, there are many obvious ski runs through the mountains all around, some still had snow on when we were there in May, albeit not enough to ski the whole way down.
