The Horel
Leaving Zaragoza and on to Coldes de Malavella it took us through lovely scenic roads. Part Freeway and lots of rural roads. We travelled through the start of the Pyranees. We stoped at a roadhouse for a nature call and coffee. It states very cleary at the entrance use toilet only if you are a customer. Fair enough. We had to look for a suitable roadhouse for most of them were of the main road. There was a music festival on where we passed. Lots of cars were parked everywhere.. We were stopped by the Police. They were checking for drink drivers. We told them No Spanish and he said ,No Problem. and waved us through. We were very keen to see our next accomodation. On the picture it looked like a mini Castle. We went of the main road into the village and drove straight passed the entrance., because it looked to posh. But no, there it was. A magnificent property, built around 1890. Built in Moorish style. It has on the property, the Vichy Catalania health springs. A massive factory fabricating healthy, water is next to the Hotel. We arrived at 3.30 and after we booked in we had

time to inspect the area. Really amazing. There are a lot of people here for health reasons. You can have a complete treatment, even a mudbath. We made some video and photos of this Hotel. We are just the one night here, so no time to get spoiled. We had a magnificent Buffet dinner everything included even drinks. It had been a very nice day, pity the last one in Spain. Till next time Liz & Allan.

Espagna
Hi world Travelers, Espagna kan er ook mee door wat schoonheid en geschiedenis betreft.In 1972 ben ik nog getuige geweest van een spaans huwelijk.De namen van mijn ouders (Cor en Nel) en van mij staan vermeld in het register van een van de katholieke kerken in Zaragoza,welke weet ik niet meer. Een prachtige reis verder and keep fit.Adios ,hasta luego !
