We are in Andorra la Vella, Andorra

Congratulations!  Everyone that guessed was correct!  We are in Andorra la Vella, Andorra, the small principality in the Pyrenees mountains between Spain and France.  To the left is the picture of us in line at border control.

I know this may sound random, but out of all the places I wanted to go this year, Andorra was at the top of the list.  Simply because I had never even heard of it before and being the highest capital city in Europe I figured the views had to be amazing!  I had no idea what to expect and luckily Jon and my parents hopped on the band wagon and were just as excited to visit this tiny country in Europe.

I have to tell you the drive there was enough to challenge the light of heart!  At points we just had to laugh at how windy the road was going up the sides of the mountains, but we made it and the drive there was breathtaking…because of the beauty and the long drops off the mountainside!

I have to be honest the actual capital of Andorra is not much to write home about, it is mainly a shopping city because there are no taxes.  Getting there was more fun…especially since I wasn’t driving!
