Trip TO Andorra:
The car left John's QTH Thursday morning - very early - at 3:00 AM. At 5:00 AM all 4 was on board the car.

We took a ferry from Denmark to Germany 05:40 AM - and paused several times during "Germany". At approx. 18:00 we entered France, and approx. 24:00 we found a Formula 1 Hotel nearby Lyon.

Here we left around 9:00 AM, and entered Andorra approx. 15:00, while we had a QSO with Vincent 14DX007, already arrived in Andorra - and now skiing at the slopes. Vincent has a portable SSB-radio :-)

At 16:02 we entered the Hotel - we thought - however we could not find the hotel. Therefore our arrival was at 16:30.

Trip FROM Andorra:
We crossed Andorra border around 17:00 and in the car we had Vincent 14DX007, as Vincent had to catch a train from the nearest Andoorian trainstation. This is approx. 1 hours drive from Andorra - in France.

After saying Good Bye to Vincent, we continued towards Lyon for some hours of sleep. Passing Carcassone city we heard 14AT055 Patrick call CQ at 555. We called him - and was immidiately invited to Patricks house.

To meet - and still save time - we agreed to meet at a freeway stop, where Patrick greeted us with champagne and cookies - indeed a great moment. Thanks Patrick.
After 1 hours meeting, we again headed Lyon and arrived at approx. 2:00 AM at a Formula 1 Hotel - and left the Hotel again at 10:00 AM Monday morning. Monday was a hard day - John was home at 04:30 AM - Tired.

We all had a great trip - in total 5 days. The days in Andorra will never be forgotten - the trip will never be forgotten !!!!
