Day 169: Andorra la Vella –to Solsona

Monday September 19, 2005, 100 km (62 miles) – Total so far: 10,356 km (6,435 miles)

We’re back in Spain where it all began six months ago. It was a bit rainy as we left the giant shopping centre in the mountains but it soon cleared up. It was quite a busy road down to Spain with some really spectacular mountain scenery, and we saw evidence of the summer’s drought passing a few dried up lakes.

There was an unexpected climb before a nice descent to Solsona; an ancient walled city where we’ve checked into a hotel.

Last night’s hotel in Andorra was excellent; in fact it was the best we’ve stayed in all tour. It was not that expensive either at €€55 including a superb breakfast. I think we were one of only two couples staying there.
