What a mess!
Going towards the route dus soleil, or so we thought. By adding gas stations into the navigation system, Shell not very present next to the toll roads, we were redirected into Paris. Not what we intended and in retrospect we made 200 extra kilometers because of it.
I was driving. People that know, also know that rarely ever happens, needless to say I was not happy about me driving at that moment.
But what a mess at that road! People just throw out anything. It’s horrible.
On our way to Max
With the sun prominently present we drove off to Barcelona to visit the Catalunya circuit for the Formula 1 test driving days.
For me personally a first, so packed with every lens I own, loads of batteries and everything else I could think off, I got in the car next to my husband.
Very exited cause these cars drive fast! Would I be able to freeze them? Well you can check my portfolio of the test day we visited.
But you also see the most beautiful things. With the camera in hand I returned to my passenger seat and recorded our journey there.
We saw the most gorgeous landscapes, trees, tunnels, yes even those are beutiful when you look at them closely enough, bridges and off course the sun that guided us the whole way there.
Due to the Paris detour we didn’t quite make it to our end destination. Right before the Spanish border we ended up in a far to expensive hotel. We couldn ‘t see another inch of road by that time…
The next morning started in the mist, we drove off early to the circuit. When we got here it was quiet, too quiet. Little did we know, we were a day early.
So we drove on to our booked hotel, Can Ballus in Tiana, Spain. On top of a mountain with a little sand road up to it. Scary as shit but what a view!
These photo's and Can Ballus
The photo’s in this post are off course worked on. I only left some of the colours. So the theme is black and white with a hint of colour. The colours I kept are aqua, blue and green.
Below you will find a view photo of the mountain in Tiana in full colour.
This hotel, which is ectually more a bed and breakfast, is a must go to. Okay, you shouldn’t be scared to drive up the mountain for the last 800 meters on a little one car sandy road but the people that run it are so friendly and polite, the rooms big and clean and a big enough breakfast in the morning.
Fresh eggs from their own chickens, fresh orange juize, croissants, bread, your sweets and non-sweets and freshly brewed coffee and tea. They do only speak Spanish but hee, we were in Spain 🙂
Keep your eye on the site for the rest of the Spain travel, they will follow as soon as possible.
