Well in a camper it took more than 13 hrs, to drive straight to Barcelona from our house. It took 16 hrs, my husband was a real trooper, he drove the whole day of December 31, 2016. We drove straight through France. On the, highway we ran into these guys. Doing the famous race from Monte Carlo, France to Dakar, Africa!!!

Then we drove into France to Montpellier for the night. The next morning January 7th there was a beautiful sunrise. We had breakfast then back on the road, stoped in Fréjus France for lunch….
On the way back through France we drove a bit off the beaten path so the autostrada only costed us 34 euro instead of 74 euro.
We made it into Italy to Recco, Liguria for supper to have famous type of focaccia that is stuffed with cheese that they only do in this area, also a pesto pasta of this village.
