I Bet You’ve Never Heard of… Andor…

Recently, I was scrolling through Youtube and game across a video called “I Accidentally Became Famous in Another Country” (press on to be taken to the link). The lady in the video explains that she had to come up with a Buzzfeed article, as she is a writer for them, and couldn’t think any ideas. Long story short, she write an article called “14 Pics that Prove Malta is the Most Underrated Country in the Mediterranean” (again you can click to see article). This gave me a stroke of inspiration… why don’t I do a recurring segment about some less traveled countries around the world and best places within them!

For the first post of “I Bet You’ve Never Heard of…” I will write aboutttttttttttttt…..

ANDORRA 

andorra-1.jpgI know what you’re thinking: “where’s this Andorra you speak of?” Well, I’m glad you asked. This adorable country is in the Pyrenees mountains right between Spain and France.

See the outlined black circle? Andorra is right in there. Cute right?andorra-map.jpg

Here are a few popular ski resorts in Andorra

Grandvalria

Vallnord

Soldeu

If you aren’t a skier that’s okay. You can always visit Sant Joan de Caselles Church aka THE tourist stop of Andorra. You can’t go without visiting this! I mean c’mon it can’t get more beautiful!!! Església_de_Sant_Joan_de_Caselles_-_7-4.jpg

This building is hard to miss if you are ever in Les Escaldes, Andorra. Along with its jaw dropping architecture this building doubles as a spa (called Caldea). I couldn’t think of a better way to relax and warm up from the slopes for a day, or maybe just a couple hours. Andorra-Inuu-Caldea-spa-complex.jpg

At the end of the day, Andorra’s natural beauty tops everything else and it’s only something you can really experience by visiting (but I’ll post some pictures to hold you over until you get there)!!!!!

Discovering the Beauty of Iceland.

About a month ago I visited Iceland. It wasn’t for a very long time due to finals week but the time I did have there was extraordinary and just breathtakingly beautiful. To truly see Iceland it requires hiking and the outdoors. You may not be a wilderness expert but Iceland’s beauty is worth it. Don’t believe me? Maybe some pictures can prove it. Or maybe you’ll just have to visit yourself.IMG_6607.JPGIMG_6608.JPGVSCO Cam-1-4.jpgVSCO Cam-1-1.jpgVSCO Cam-1-3.jpgVSCO Cam-1.jpgIMG_6972.JPGIMG_6609.JPG
