tripNETer Road Trip: Part two, On The Road

16 May

On the second day of our trip, we decided to avoid highways and cross small towns and countryside.

In the gateway to the Pyrenees we came across stunning landscapes. After the maybe too crowded Cataluña, Aragón feels like empty. Between Petrol Stations there are kilometers of just nothing. Hidden towns look deserted.

We stopped at some lake to left our car rest.

That’s my 1995 VW Golf Cabriolet. Commonly known in Germany as “Erdbeerkörbchen” (Strawberry box) because of the anti-roll bar. It’s the perfect car to enjoy the spanish spring.

Slowly, the green countryside turns into a brown desert, the Desierto de Monegros, and it looks just like the Western movies. It is a peaceful and vast place, also well-known because of the Monegros Desert Festival.

After an hour or so, we arrived to Zaragoza. Stay tuned for more.
