My workshop at La Cascade arrives in less than two weeks. I’m very excited to share the week with 10 adventurous women!  Dan and I took a brief jaunt to Andorra, for a quick little getaway before the workshop.

Andorra is located high in the Pyrenees and is bordered by Spain and France. It’s about a 3 hour drive from us.  Beautiful scenery- astounding views of the mountains, speckled with wild flowers and horses and cows grazing high on the hills. The last hour of the drive is a long switch-backed climb up hill. Andorra la Velle- where we stayed- is the highest capital city in Europe! The official language is Catalan and in 2013 it had the highest life expectancy of 81 years!

The main reason we went was for a performance by Cirque du Soleil. I found the event on the  internet and it looked so exciting and the tickets ranged from FREE to 18E seats! Amazing- considering how expensive Cirque is in the US. So off we went. I also highly recommend the inexpensive and beautiful hotel we stayed at- Hotel Isard.

This new production is called Stelar. This is the fifth summer that Cirque has had a month long residency high in the Pyrenees Mountains mountains. Taking pics was forbidden at the event so I don’t have any of mine to share. Suffice to say it was awesome- a highlight of the summer.
