This was an unforgettable journey by that we took by car from Luxembourg through France – via Champagne, the Loire valley, Cognac, Bordeaux – and then onwards over the Pyrenees into Spain.The towns and cities slipped by – including Santiago del Compostella, Vigo, and Madrid. Heading south through southern Spain, the road led into Portugal and the village of Sagres on the most westerly, southerly tip of Europe. It was a long journey in a small car, but one that left lasting memories.
The beach in Sagres and the freshness of the breeze from across the Atlantic Ocean. My good friend Heidi, travelled with me and shared every precious moment of this journey.
The Holy Week procession in Santiago del Compostella led by the men dress in white gowns with sinister pointed hoods that covered their faces.
