With the UK Government's sudden announcement that Spain has been placed back on the "All but essential travel" list, we decided to head to France to enjoy at least 2 weeks exploring a country we only ever really drive through. We decided to avoid the Covid-19 hotspots in both Aragon and Catalunya regions by tracking up to the East side of the Pyrenees mountains 10 hours away!
We broke up the journey by spending the night at Camping Cuenca. Arriving at around 6pm in the evening, the boys all headed off to the pool (complete with it's own cave) for a lovely swim! This campsite has the most beautiful toilet block we have seen so far on this trip - in fact, only the loos at Camping Krk in Croatia are more beautiful!
The next morning we set off early and tracked North West towards France. I chose an incredible point to cross the border based primarily on the outline of the road snaking up on the map (don't tell Steve, he thinks I did loads of research!). My instincts were right though, with that many hairpin bends and switch backs, the aire at the top had incredible views. Steve got some pretty amazing drone footage and an early morning time lapse video of sun rising over the misty mountains.
