Twist

Puerto de los Portillinos, Spain | www.myfoododyssey.com

We encountered a number of twisty roads on our trip last summer. One of the twistiest, yet most beautiful, was the road through Los Portillinos, a mountain pass 1957 metres above sea level set in the Aquilanos Mountains in north-western Spain. Despite the blue skies it was freezing cold at the top, with patches of snow in sheltered areas.

    • Ha! I never noticed that – he’s right in the firing line! He’s made of tough stuff, that man of mine!

  3. And the boy is happy enough in his t-shirt and shorts, despite the snow…typical!

    • Indeed! He actually had to run up the mountain to play in a big patch of snow! It was nice and cozy in the van, though, because of the sun.

      • Ah, Baltic people and their love of snow 😉 Did the locals there look as miserable as the ones here when it hit the high 20s?!
        Stunning photos by the way!

      • Thanks! No, they actually seem to cheer up a bit when it gets warm. There’s lots of lakes and they love to swim and fish and cook šašlyka, so warm days are welcome! Last week was a bit hot for me, though – not sure how I’ll survive July!
