This tour started early, at 7:00 a.m at the Explore Catalunya headquarters, which was easy to find, and close to a metro station. We boarded the tour bus, which had comfy seats, AC, and more than enough room for everyone on the tour. Our first stop was Bagà, Spain, a charming Spanish municipality in Catalonia. We arrived in Bagà before most of the locals were awake, so it was like we had the city all to ourselves! Our tour guide gave us a quick walk through of Bagà, and then we had about a half hour to explore Bagà on our own. Bagà is extremely picturesque, charming, and very easy to fall in love with. Dylan and I could have easily spent more time in Bagà, but before we knew it we were on to our next destination!
Our second country was France, where we visited Mont-Louis, which is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed town. We also had a light breakfast in Mont-Louis of a croissant (when in France...) and a glass of pineapple juice (included in the tour fees). We had a little bit of time to explore Mont-Louis and to take some photos. It was nice to be in a country where Dylan and I could understand some of the language (French), although I still couldn't find the word for "garbage" when trying to clean up after our breakfast.
