Looking for fall...

I really like my job and I work a lot, but … sometimes I also need a good rest. And so we last weekend we rested. It was a national holiday on Friday and car rental companies had special deals, so we went to look for fall. Because you must know that in Barcelona it is still warm enough to walk in a short sleeve, and even when it gets cold, it’s not really fall. The leaves are just turn gray and fall. No yellows, oranges or reds. But we heard that fall can be found in the Pyrenees and that’s where we went…

 

More specifically to Valle de Aran, a valley located just off the French border. An interesting place – the people there speak three mother tongues: Aranean (this is the official language used in schools and offices!), Catalan and Spanish, and many of them also speak French and English. In the winter, it’s a great ski resort, and now it’s kind of quieter. We did not stop at the bottom of the valley, but some 11 kilometers away from the main resort and a few hundred meters above it. And we stayed in an unusual home with an extraordinary woman who treated us and other guests, like grandchildren who came down (or rather up) for the weekend. At breakfast, she would sit at a table together and she brough us her own bread, her own eggs, her own tomatoes …

But apart from eating and talking with interesting company, we were able to walk quite a bit and stretch the muscles that are stiffened from sitting at the computer. And wont write another word… the photos are enough!
