Crean's and the Guys' adventure travel blog

The peugeot 308S has a slide roof, large boot area and although manual is just right for four people. Brian drove out of >Toulouse with the help of Daisy May- this is definitely where a GPS are worth their weight in gold (and save marriages!). Headed southeast towards St Lizier taking all the laternative routes. The landscape changed as we gradually climbed. Enroute we stopped at Groto de Azul- a huge cavern that we drove through. Outside we came across a grassed area by the river, with a group setting up loudspeakers and fireworks, obviously for a big festival that night. A good place to stop for lunch espceially with soem rock music blaring out. Onwards to St Giurons- we arrived just as the market was closing but oh what a beautiful setting for a town. A river runs through the centre and the banks were lined with houses and restaurants. Picture postacard material, and we saw a scallop mark in the paving of the walking bridge- another indicatioon of the many pilgrim trails to >Santiago de Compestella.

We continued on after visitng St Lizier, and eventually found accommodation ain chalet like lodging just out of St Beat. E44 each couple got us a cabin, dinner and breakfast. Its much cooler in the mountains of course so jerseys on tonight. A lovely dinner of salad de canard, casseroled bacon/pork and rice, and an apple tart ended a wonderful first day in the Pyrenees.
