We are on our way through the mountains in Picos de Europa, and it’s spectacular! And it seems we’re not the only people to think so. We spotted this Dutch truck today, but didn’t get to meet the owners.
and you would be right to think that’s not so strange, seeing another truck on the road. well, the thing is we were well off the beaten path when we saw it, and the clouds were coming down, and there were bears around (or so we were told…)
And it got stranger. Sarah convinced me to go for a walk! And here is proof of that.

On the road, we explored a few villages, and saw some really nice old doors, with the timber full of cracks and weathering.
And the villages are really nice.
How long did it take you to read this, and maybe click on a few of the photos to see a “proper” version of them? 30 seconds? a minute perhaps? That’s about how long it took the clouds to descend on the Mog and the Mercedes. Scary thought!
