Tour: Vandretur i Pyrenæerne på egen hånd, Spanien
Vandreturen fra Mollo´til Setcases var helt fantastisk. Overnatningsstedet i Camprodon var helt i top. Meget, meget charmerende sted og helt enestående søde og hjælpsomme værter. I det hele taget var overnatningsstederne hyggelige og værterne meget søde."
