Nic and I headed south towards Spain today. Today must have been the first official day of summer because half of Europe was on the road with us. The driving was very slow going, but it was pleasant because we had good weather for once. The further south we got, the nicer the countryside was. When we reached within 60 miles of our destination, the rolling hills turned into vast canyons and mountains. Everything was green and lush. It almost looked like some painting of the French Countryside.
Our hostel was located in a small village on the border of France and Spain. There were old vineyards and sheep on the hills. Each small village had an old church in the middle of it. On every hour and half hour the bells rung and you could hear them echo through the canyons. The village that we where staying in is very rural. As I write this, a storm is moving through these mountains providing an impressive lightning and thunder show. We are heading to bed early tonight, so we can get an early start to see the Running of the Bulls.
