The Sunday Special will be trying out a new spin so let’s see how it goes. In the past I have done series on natural landscapes (deserts, mountains, etc). My own travels have been highlighted. And of course, bucket list worthy destinations have made it here too. This time ’round I am going to alphabetize. Yep, I will go through the alphabet to select a place, sight, or event (and possibly even food) to showcase to you. Let’s see the world one letter at a a time.
Snuggled high in the Pyrenees mountains of Europe lies the landlocked micro-nation of Andorra. The sixth smallest European nation is found between France and Spain, which means entry into it is via one of them. There are no airports or train stations so bus and car is the way to enter (or by helicopter is you have the funds). So how can one spend their days here? Here is what I found:
- Hiking and walking for various skill levels. Being a mountainous country there are plenty of places to explore on foot in the summer months
- Skiing. It’s the mountains so there is a bounty of ski resorts to choose from. Heli-skiing is also available. It’s a winter sports wonderland
- Cycling – both mountain biking terrain and asphalt-lined paths
- Activities such as zip-lining, mountain slide, horseback riding, archery, rope circuits high in the trees, camping and more
- Shopping and good food
It seems to me that Andorra may be a micro-sized country yet has large-size itineraries.
