Today I hiked up to near the top of the mountain where we live in the National Park in Northern Spain. That is where the main stream that supplies much of the water to our community start. It bubbles up from the ground and begins its journey downhill creating spectacular waterfalls and feeds the springs of the surrounding communities. We are in a drought this year and most of the other streams have dried up. I wanted to check to see how our main stream is doing and it appears to be still going strong fed by the waters running off the melting glaciers in the Pyrenees.
Monalia and I (plus our chihuahua Bianca and pinscher Zuma) took a two week road trip through the South of France in our RAV4 to see friends and film castles and to just get out of Spain for a while after being trapped in Barcelona for so long because of pandemic border restrictions.
We spent a couple of nights in the mountain town of Camprodón in the Pyranees Mountains. We had to go there to renew our Spanish residency cards as it was the only place with appointments available. We rented a dog-friendly apartment for 2 nights on Booking.com and it was great with free private parking and lots of rooms and a nice kitchen. The town of Camprodón was beautiful but it seemed kind of dead. Even though it was Winter the shops and stores seemed permanently shuttered. We had a great though getting lost in the tiny winding streets and flying the drone to get bird’s eye view of how the town is laid out. Anyway, please enjoy and if you like this type of travel content please like the video and subscribe to our channel.
Hang out with the Ninja Nomads as they BBQ and talk about their adventures in the Baix Empordá region of Catalonia. We spent in the country in a small house on the edge of a town called Pallafrugel. Among other things we talk about our climb up the mountain to visit and film the Castillo de Montgri… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montgr%C3%AD_Castle and our visit to Peratallada to try their famous anchovy ice cream… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peratallada And I tell the story of when my wife flashed (lifted her shirt and bared her breasts) the prisoners inside a jail in Mexico on our wedding day almost causing a small riot. We also spend our actual honeymoon in a 5-star hotel called Mas de Torrent… https://www.hotelmastorrent.com/en/
