Driving from Andalucia to Catalonia
Driving on the Mediterranean Highway on a sunny and not too hot day from Andalucia to Catalonia is a very beautiful ride. It is also a very long ride. We travelled for nine hours and 2 minutes, only stopping in total 32 minutes to get from La Herradura to El Vendrell.
It was of course a bit hard, we were tired and in the beginning the day seemed endless. We slept a bit (not the driver, he listened to his audiobook), listened to music, talked, ate 2 meals, talked some more, listened to audiotheatre, looked out the window.
The mountains, the almond trees in bloom, the orange fields heavy with ripe oranges, the small villages, the big cities, and of course: The Mediterranean. As the sun set, we drove through the known landscape of Northern Catalonia and in the last bit of light we arrived to our bus, tired, happy, at home.
We are all grateful, this can be done: To move the whole family 900 kilometers in one day by car. We are also – and more – grateful for our traveling life, our bus to live in, our friends in Catalonia, the adventures awaiting.
