Spain and Portugal: travelogue summer 2001

A friend of ours lives in Albufeira in Portugal and that seems like a good reason to make the long trip to Spain and Portugal because we have a full month of vacation. Via Belgium, France and Andorra we arrive at Barcelona where we stay for a while because we find it a fascinating city and will go there more often later. Via Cordoba and Gibraltar we arrive after a week in Portugal where it is hot and we are happy with the beach nearby. And Elisabeth is suffering from a heat stroke for the first (and last) time in her life.


Via the Archeodrome and Andorra naar Barcelona
Barcelona, La Sagrada Familia and Parc Güell
Barcelona, the old city of Barcelona, the Ramblas

Via Fatima and Tomar to Praia da Mira, it gets cold
