Camí de la Muntanya
Andorra, nestled in the Pyrenees, sixth smallest nation in Europe, ruled by co-Princes and inhabited by cows and fairies and one really big shopping mall.

GR11

A walk in the Spanish Pyrenees. One of the days I didn’t see a single other person on the trail. Only cows. Cows tinkling on every crest and in every valley.

Can this be in my life soundtrack forever

I got to Alhambra super early (it wasn’t 0700 yet) to line up for day of tickets and was 6th in line, oops (I got my lining up experience from years of SD Comic Con so I am highly skilled at the art of queuing). There was more than an hour to derp around whilst waiting. The girl at the front was parked against a wall and knitting.

The palace was amazing, it is deceptively plain from far away, like the day before when I sketched it from the opposite hills, but if you keep zooming in you see that the columns and ceilings and most of the walls are intricately carved and inlayed with insanity-level detail (not pictured, refer to google).

The Alhambra with the other Sierra Nevadas peaking up in back, plus extra stalkerage as my productivity increases exponentially with the temperature because drawing means staying in the shade and not moving. If the sun can’t see you it can’t hurt you, ostrich style.

Also, gazpacho is this crazy Andalusian summer drink with tomato and olive oil and vinegar and other things you would never put in a smoothie. This Granada native literally pulled me off the streets to make me try it, they’re proud of what they’ve done.

Trying to do some sketches during the idle times (: Being a traveling artist means licence to people-watch without shame.

I originally suspected moleskines were expensive for the sole purpose of pretension but the paper material behaves so well absorbing ink and minimally bleeding, it is kind of magical. Moleskine you can have my money.
