So we made a trip with our 21 year old camper in the Catalonian Pyrenees in Spain.
On the day of departure the brakes didn’t work properly, so we had to fix that first. Then the camper tested our patience by cooking all the water out of the cooling system in the climb to the Bielsa-tunnel in the Pyrenees. Luckily no serious harm was done to the engine; the fan was loose on the axle and stopped rotating at higher revolutions. I just had to lock the fan properly, fill the cooling system again with water ( 6 liters !) and restart the engine . The good old Mercedes 2.3 diesel proved its quality again 😉
In the first video you can see the three days it took to get to Bielsa in Spain. The first night in Spain we slept in Valle de Pineta. (N42 38 30.8 E0 10 09.4)
The second video shows our visit to the old town of Ainsa, where I ate the largest T-bone steak I ever had before …..
The third video shows the reservoir “Embalse de Barasona” (N42 09 17.2 E0 20 17.2) where we slept four nights, because of the tranquility. On the second day Harm and Els ( two Dutch artists who live in Spain) visited the spot to make some Art (and just have fun).
In part 5 you’ll get some impression of our visit to St. Miquel del Fai.
In the last video you’ll see our camping place at Riu de Josa (N 42 15 05.8 E 1 36 43.9)
The skull we found is now on our house as a souvenir from Riu de Josa 😉
A Dutchman in Spain doesn’t use sun creme and bears the consequences without complaining ….
Glad we’re home again !
BTW; we used number 28 of the WOMO-books (NE Spain) to find some hints and tips. Without this book we would have missed some great places to stay for the night ! We didn’t use any official camping at all and that’s were campers are meant for …
