This week we get off the beaten path and discover a part of Spain that we've never heard about! In Northern Spain (along the border of France) are the most magical mountains 🏔 called the Pyrenees and we are lucky enough to spend a few days exploring the region in our self converted sprinter van. What's it like to live in a van in the wild? Come along for the adventure!
Our van life Europe journey began when we decided to ship our van across the world in search of the next big adventure! Since then we've driven our sprinter van conversion from England - Wales - Ireland - Scotland - France - Spain - Portugal and now back to Portugal! Every week we share an episode of what it's like to van life in the city as well as van life in nature as we try to see and do most everything Europe has to offer ❤️🌎

I think they thought I either took too many meds or was still much too sick to be out of bed! I backpacked in my early 20’s in the mid-late 90’s. You two really had it down before having to come home. I’m looking forward to see you traveling around the United States!:)🤍☀️

And have links to where people are currently who are looking for new friends.

And also in that particular creek, its not permitted to bathe either. With the amount of followers you have, it would be great if you could send out some nature preservation tips or heads up, as you visit these awesome places. Just fair feedback..

  • Hello from the Pyrenees. Your vlog is great. I was in the mountains today - Feb 3 in 21c - amazing. Us northern Europeans (Brit), really don't appreciate the beauty of the Pyrenees. We seem to think that the Alps are the only mountains in Europe. BTW, if you think the Pyrenees are amazing you should go to the Picos de Europa in Northern Spain - even more spectacular. Is there a vlog between this one and the Tarifa one? Have you thought of numbering your vlogs?

  • Dude, as much as I loved the video... I hated to see you getting into the water And flying a drone at a national park.... Seriously guy... In Spain we have really good places, but these are a few, and they still there because we take care of them. BTW, a great number of protected birds lives at the pirineos, many of them get injured by youtuber's drones every year.

  • most of the people down know how diverse spain is. the "typical spanish" associated items, landscapes and cultures are often just from one specific region in the country, like paella or flamenco. also they're different languages and dialects like castillian, andalusian castillian, galician, catalan, basque, etc. even myself as a half spanish guy knew only the andalusian and little southvalencian culture and thought that this was all. now i want to explore the north a little more!

  • Spain is the most versatile country in Europe. They got every type of turism and not just got it but it's actually great. Even just a little part of Spain, Catalonia, is already so complete and got it all. Spain got a rainy and cold site like Galicia or Bilbao too, hot and amazing beaches, even some exotic beaches, even Ocean beaches in Galicia too, more big city type of turism like Madrid or Barcelona, islands like Las Canarias and Las Baleares...

  • Hi guys, I'm from Zaragoza and I have a house at the Pyrenees and, honestly, I'm so proud now, so flattered, so thankful for this video. We know that Spain is commonly and sometimes only known because of our sunny beaches and stuff like that but we have sooo many differet biomes. You should definetly visit Asturias & Cantabria. Picos de Europa is another stunning place and has one of the most jaw-dropping landscapes in the whole country. Again, as a guy from Zaragoza, couldn't be more thankful for this. Love you!!!

  • Oh, and you didn't make the most of the National Park, which I believe you didn't mention is called Ordesa. You have to take Senda de los Cazadores, Faja del Rey, THEN arrive at Cola de Caballo and finally go back the way you came in. You pretty much missed the best views of the mountains by not climbing that first bit and just going for the flat, easy hike straight to Cola de Caballo. Of course, that would have been a 7-hour hike, truly epic, so you start to wonder whether it's really about the hike or just editing a video quickly for FRworld.

  • Too many hipster "Expedition Happiness"-style clichés for my taste. Man bun, tattoo, yoga practice and breakfast with chia seeds, very much "look at me and my perfect life" all too common today. Your Spanish isn't great but hey, thanks for showing Aragón, one of Spain's more overlooked regions. By the way, if you can say a TH sound in English, you can pronounce Zaragoza, not Saragosa, which is NOT what a local would say. Keep practicing your Spanish.

    NataliaNataliaIl y a 9 mois
  • Just one thing. I am not sure if you are aware that PILAR is a very common name in Aragón, that is this region, and also around Spain. The Virgin del Pilar is the saint patron of Aragón. FYI, Aragón has 3 provinces: Huesca, Zaragoza y Teruel.

  • It's not a joke, a lot of people think that Spain is a desert from north to south and what they don't know is that Spain has everything: two deserts, more forests than UK, glaciers, places where you can find 45 degrees and others where you can find -20 degrees, landscapes like Iceland or Sweden, green prairies and much more. And yes guys, YES, in Spain it snows too much in winter, we know what the snow is, we know what the extreme cold is, yeeeees. Ignorance about Spain out there is incredible.

    • I did this circular hiking, starting from la Senda de los Cazadores, up to the Mirador, which is amazing, then going along the canyon towards la Cola de Caballo, and then back to the parking lot. It's takes the whole day. You need to be prepared with water, good boots, food, and raincoat or similar for the rain. BEAUTIFUL!!!. Spain is very diverse and each part has its singularities and beautiful scenarios.

Especially Spain (well, France too). Did you visited the french side of the pyrenees ? I will suggest you to see the Cirque de Gavarnie.

Surprise, nothing in Benidorm, Ibiza or Palma de Mallorca is "Typical Spanish", its tourist´s made! So yeah, maybe 70-60% of Spain is mountain-like, green and really empty. And no, we don´t have toros or flamenco, we are like small countries all gathered in one, there are several independent languages (not dialects), and many many landscapes, and don´t expect people to speak English like I´m writing it. We just don´t like/need it. But hey, don´t go tell everybody, we rather want you in Benidorm destroying the city than all over the country, messing around.
