One Month Road-Trip: SPAIN


Ooooookay, this will be a long one! 🙂 4 Weeks ago we came back from our one-month-road-trip trough Spain. Kind of through Spain. Our first stop was in France – Ailefroide. If you are into hiking, climbing or biking this a really nice place to stuff like this. The camping there is super nice! Pure nature and only outdoor-minded people.

Barcelona

Our next stop was Barcelona. Super awesome city – we walked a lot, but I guess this is the best way to discover all the amazing little spots. We ate very good food, looked at all the crazy buildings and visited some museums. We stayed at a camping 30km outside of Barcelona – we were too afraid of getting robbed. 🙂

Camarasa – Alquézar – Rodellar

After Barcelona we drove to Berga for some climbing and then to Camarasa. A small town in the middle of nowhere. We climbed there as well, but only in the late afternoon, since it was just craaaazy hot. Honestly, we couldn’t move, it was too hot. But the river there is very refreshing and we had a great wild camping spot. After Camarasa the real climbing stuff started. First Alquézar then Rodellar. Both great places to climb.

Can Franc

Read about the story behind this abandoned train station <<here>>. We spent two hours walking around, because there is so much to discover.

Kortezubi

We just drove there because we wanted to see “the painted forest – bosque de oma”. If you have time, it is worth a visit. It’s super fun to walk around this forest and see the constructions of artist Agustin Ibarrola.

Bilbao

Go to the Guggenheim Museum. It’s super awesome. Just go. The video installation by the icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson gave me goosebumps.

Naranjo de Bulnes – Picos de EuropaHoly crap, that was something! We went climbing again and met some spanishguys. We asked them, hey what’s a “to-do” in the Picos de Europa. They told us to climb a mountain called Naranjo de Bulnes. So we did. Started our adventure at six o’clock in theafternoon – a little late, but we made it through the fog to the refugio. (2 hours of crazy fast hiking.) We started hiking again in the next morning – only one hour, but pretty steep and without that much sleep during the night – it was exhausting. (Still hate this snorring person!) We arrived at the foot of our multi-pitch climbing action. The first pitch is the hardest. Followed by four more pitches and some more hiking to the peak. The view was worth it. If you are into hiking and climbing, this tour is highly recommended.

San Vincente
After our multi-pitch tour we drove down just a little bit and found a lot of baby cats next to the street. A goat and a dog joined me being totally “awwwwwww” and “ohhhhhhh” over the baby cats! I was in baby-cat-heaven. After our Picos de Europa adventure we went back to the beach. We camped in a city called San Vincente. Great for surf beginners, like me. But the best part was, we could see the peak of “our” mountain while relaxing at the beach. It was an awesome trip. So what’s next?
