We fly over to Spain in three days time, at last. But we have a tight deadline to meet before we go.
We are half way through our travels and we thought it would be useful to have an overview of our costs, year to date.
Dora is sorted. Her new (well relatively new) fifth gear allows us to drive over 60 kilometres an hour. Such a luxury, we are going to start calling her ‘Speedy-Gon-Dora’. Also, her battery circuit has not failed once. We feel relief but nonetheless still sad leaving Spain.
We had such a lovely time skiing in Vall de Nuria that we thought of having another sky day in Vallter 2000. We drove all the way up there. The next day was quite foggy. Skiing in the fog is not pleasant so we decide to drive down to Arbucies. Dora’s gear may have arrived today.
We headed off to look for some snow.
We wake to a lovely morning at St Celoni. We still have a half an hour drive to Santa Fe, the place from where our second trek in Montseny starts. The trek today: climbing up to the two highest peaks of the park: Turo de l’Homme and Les Agudes, both around 1700 metres.
Well, it seems we are going to spend a few more days around this area until the fifth gear comes next week (see previous post). The Pyrenees are only a couple of hours drive away and we fancy a days skiing, but tomorrow is Saturday, the slopes will probably get quite busy, so better leave the skiing for Monday. So what should we do around here over the weekend?
We leave Morella heading north towards Barcelona, and out of Spain. We will both be sad. It has been such an important part of the journey for us. But before we go we have arranged to see a specialist mechanic who is just outside Girona.
We sought tranquil landscapes, cute villages, a normal double bed and a rest bite from the wind. A walk to some remote villages and back sounded idyllic.
To the north of Valencia is the hilltop town of Morella. Our guide suggested there were good opportunities for walking around the area and this most picturesque of villages.
