Start: Barcelona Aiport
End: Pyrene basecamp (1,900m), Cerdanya Valley
Welcome to the Pyrenees! Just this afternoon, we departed Barcelona and now stand at the Pyrene base camp in the beautiful Cerdanya Valley. We all feel the excitement and enthusiasm, the best mix of feelings to begin this 14-day-long adventure through the Pyrenees. We are 18 participants who arrived from all over the world, so we get to know each other with quick games, first laughs, and shy conversations in English, Spanish, and Catalan. After, we begin our first briefing, hand out rentals out, and double check our packing list. Tonight we look forward to a traditional Catalan meal at the camp, galets soup and potato omelet. Good food makes us feel a bit more at home despite the distance, the altitude, and the new faces.
