So this was a really last minute trip! James had a stag do he was going to which was in Poland and I really didn’t want to stay in the UK whilst he was having fun abroad! So my Aunty suggested to come back to Andorra as she was there snowboarding. I booked my flights with BA for £97 return from Heathrow which was such a good deal! Once I got to Barcelona I again caught the dreaded coach to El Tarter, Andorra which actually only took about 4 hours this time!
We had the best time shredding the slopes and drinking champagne together! Both of my aunties spoilt me rotten and took me to some really lush restaurants that James and I didn’t get to go to last time! One of the restaurants called Arrosseria in just at the top of the gondola in El Tarter. The food was insane, we had lobster knuckles and mountain rice and of course rose!
Andorra in March is so beautiful and warm, the snow is slushy and super easy to board in, and when you do stack it (like me all the time) it’s nice and soft to land on haha! My aunties also got me some snowboard boots whilst I was there to start me off on my boarding adventures! They are so cute! Just look at them!
The next day we boarded a couple of hours to get to our lunch spot called Lac Del Pessons, It’s a beautiful little restaurant deep in the mountains right next to a lake (which was all frozen over obviously). My aunties booked 10 days in advance to secure a table and even then there was only limited tables left!
Apres are one of the best parts about being in the mountain! We went to a couple of bars at the bottom of the mountain too after we had finished for the day. One is right at the bottom of the mountain, you can nearly snowboard all the way down to it! It’s all outside and theres a dj every night! There is also Dylan’s bar near where my aunties live and if you’ve read my last Andorra post the cocktail bar just up from Dylan’s has been renamed to foc n loc or something along those lines.
We had a really good time out on the Saturday night, ended up with a very bad hangover the next day. We managed to get up the mountain around 1pm, when we made it to the top we were all so sick we decided to sit down and get food from one of the cafes. We did one run down and that was it for us! This was our last day up the mountain so we had to walk all of our boards etc back up to the house. Along the way we stopped for some well deserved burgers from Burger Brothers, one of the best burgers I have ever had!
I literally had the best time here and I can’t wait for James and I to go back next year and experience different things!
