Nothern Spain and Andorra – Food Journey!

We have recently had the chance to spend a bit more than a week traveling around beautiful Northern Spain and cloudy-rainy but breathtaking Andorra. We have picked grapes, figs and zucchini, hiked and bicycled in the Andorran hills and above all, ate from dawn till dusk. After all, we were in Spain!

Here is just a little “taste” from our trip, recipes and more pics coming soon!!:

For the cutest little villages, go to Northern Spain πŸ™‚


Those Andorran slopes are not only pretty in winter:

  1. Yes, as a matter of fact I am hungry and also jealous because Spain is on my wish list of places to visit. Those Andorra slopes are breathtaking … What a beautiful place.

    • Wonderful for sure πŸ™‚ We are already planning to go back, equipped with hiking boots and sticks because those mountains hide numerous hiking trails that take you to the hidden beauties of the country”s national parks. Also if you go, don’t forget to rent/take a car because Andorra has no trains or underground railways and the buses won’t take you anywhere you should go πŸ™‚

      • How long would you go for when you go back? And best time of year?

      • Well 4-5 days were great for our purpose (hikes, some biking, visiting the “biggest” towns and capital and a “via ferrata” all fit in 4 days), September seemed great to me however if you prefer warmer weather I’d recommend August or July – and of course if you wanna go skiing – why not?:) – pick winter!!
