In June I had the good fortune of participating in a remarkable blog trip to Costa Brava, Spain. The goal of the trip was to introduce travel bloggers and writers to the area so that we could in turn share our discoveries with the rest of the world. That trip was transformative personally and I fell madly in love with this dynamic region of Spain. Well, I’m about to see another side of the country this week when I visit the Spanish Pyrenees.
Once again I will be joining several other travel bloggers and writers as we explore Spain. The details of the trip are being kept secret from participants in order to maintain our own excitement and enthusiasm, but there are a few details I think I can guess.
Serving as the border between Spain and France, the Pyrenees have long held a special place in my imagination. I have heard stories about cloistered communities reached only by train, of languages and customs long thought lost and food that forms the stuff of legends. While many of these storybook villages are popular in the winter amongst the ski set, their beauty appears to be undeniable throughout the year.
There are certain travel experiences I enjoy most and beautiful landscapes and learning about new cultures are two of my favorites. Even though I can’t share with you right now what I’ll be doing, I hope that you’ll follow along with the adventure and learn as I do what the region has to offer. If you’re on Twitter please be sure to follow the hashtag #InPyrenees for up to the minute updates and photos. I’ll also be posting daily pictures here, on Instagram and on Facebook, Internet permitting.
Is there anything you think I should know about the Spanish Pyrenees or is there something you want me to find out for you?
