End of the road - another dead end up til mountain

Why do you go to Andorra - because it's there. To get to the little country in the mountains is great, especially if you are coming from the french side. You drive in some fantastic mountain views. As a Dane coming from a country where the highest point is 173 meters - you can understand my fascination. I just love them.

One thing you have to do in Andorra, is shopping - I bought my digital camera here and these pictures are the first ones. This place is also a place to haggle as well - walk from shop to shop and see how you are doing. You have to be aware of their siesta - they close many of the shops for 1½ - 2½ hours in the middle of the day.

I took my car up many of the small roads that leave the main road - and there you find fantastic views. The Andorians are excellent drivers and the like to show off by passing you in the most crazy ways:D 

One of the great things of the surroundings of Andorra are to follow the rutes of Tour De France and many of the mountain tops - I am just amazed how they can do these peaks on bike and in the speed they do it. Some of these peaks are really hard to drive in car.
