Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Biarritz

We were aiming to stay in Bayonne but continued as we didn’t really find something amazing over there and reached Biarritz. We found a great parking for camping cars just 300m from the beach.
G and me split up in the mornings sometimes as he is training cycling and I’m not 😛 So he went for a tour on his bike and I went for a walk. Biarritz is a little coast town with a beautiful view of the Atlantic. The town itself is hilly.

We love eating in this car! 🙂

Here is another “little” castle. Have no name of this one. Though the location is splendid.

As it was a hot day we rested some hours on the beach. The water was ice cold! One toe was more than enough.

We stayed 2 nights and one whole day in Biarritz.

St Jean de Luz

Welcome to the Pays Basques!
In the picture on the left it is peppers you can see.

The buildings and houses are all stored in their original facades.

Stayed for a coffee on this square before we continued our road trip.

Saint-Lary-Soulan

The uncle we visited once lived in this mountain village. G knew it was nice and cute and after an accidental 10 min trip into Spain we turned back north and reached the High Pyrénées. Love it when there is still snow on the mountains. Winter time there are around 50 pistes to discover around the village. A lot of hiking and cycling is done here as well. The elevation differs between 850-3000m, the village is located at the lower part 🙂

After another morning cycle tour and a morning walk, G had passed by a nice little spot where we parked to have lunch. Perfect. 🙂

And we made dessert as well – pancakes 🙂

Before we left the Pyrénées we stopped by a lake where we had coffee by the lake and then we took off and found a nice look out spot over the lake Loudonvielle 🙂

This was pretty cool. We saw these little “houses” from the road while driving and then we saw the sleigh dogs! There were so many of them! I wish I can come back here during winter one day. Beautiful mountains and great nature!
