  3. I'm in awe. The name, Andorra, was familiar to me, but I know nothing about the country. These photos show it off brilliantly! You've shown a variety of landscapes and even seasons! It's like watching a professional travelogue!

    Merci beaucoup!

    And best of luck on your French exams!

  4. I've wanted to go there for years, and now I can. It's a short (by Canadian standards) drive from the condo we're renting near Perpignan, France, in early April, and is on our list of day trips. I suspected they would speak Catalan, but didn't know for sure.
    An old friend from work used to tell me about Andorra all the time, and how he planned to retire there. He said it was beautiful, and your photos certainly confirm that.
    I'm going to send my husband a link to this blog post. Thank you!

  11. This is so much fun for me to see what Andorra looks like. It's charming. One of my favorite peace protest songs when I was growing up was called Andorra and was written by Pete Seeger and Malvina Reynolds. Below are the lyrics in case you are interested:

    Chorus:
    I want to go to Andorra, Andorra, Andorra,
    I want to go to Andorra, it's a place I adore,
    They spent four dollars and ninety cents
    On armaments and their defense,
    Did you ever hear of such confidence?
    Andorra, hip hurrah!

    In the mountains of the Pyrenees
    There's an independent state,
    Its population five thousand souls,
    And I think they're simply great.
    One hundred and seventy square miles big
    And it's awf'lly dear to me.
    Spends less than five dollars on armaments,
    And this I've got to see.

    (Chorus)

    It's governed by a council,
    All gentle souls and wise,
    They've only five dollars for armaments
    And the rest for cakes and pies;
    They didn't invest in a tommy gun
    Or a plane to sweep the sky,
    But they bought some blanks for their cap pistols
    To shoot on their Fourth of July.

    (Chorus)

    They live by the arts of farm and field
    And by making shoes and hats,
    And they haven't got room in their tiny land
    For a horde of diplomats;
    They haven't got room in their tiny land
    For armies to march about,
    And if anyone comes with a war budget
    They throw the rascals out.

    (Chorus)
