    What is the journey from Toulouse to Valencia like via Andorra ? Road conditions etc.
    Or should I go via the Coast as originally planned ?:Cool::Cool::Cool:

    If you go via Andora you will require chains at this time of year. Its not a route I personally would recommend at this time of year, even though some do use it.

    Well dear guest .... If you let me wake up.......(I think I'm ill babies' gift I guess!!!) I 'll tell you this without a doubt.... but honest don't think there has been a flake on Pyrénees lately!!! I would have known it. So we'll check as I have a special link to show us the roads. Is this OK with you ?

    Andora is a pain.!!
    If you have never been it's worth doing at least once to see the scenery, otherwise one road in, through and out.. Catch it at the wrong time and its a nightmare with the traffic.
    Fags, booze and diesel cheap but quantity on first 2 limited..
    After Andorra its a nice road out to near Salou and then a good free dual carriageway down a good section of the coast..

    If you pass Benidorm, we are in situ at our apartment till 9 th Dec..:thumb:

    We were there in 86, we were staying in a campsite near Roses, and thought Andora would make a nice daytrip. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    It snowed! And this was june:Eeek: didn't get there till about 16.00 so stayed the night.
