I met Johnny and Victoria, a young married couple from Australia doing a European tour in their Defender, on my latest trip to Morocco. We enjoyed the North African continent together and before leaving for Europe we decided to team up again and do some off-roading together in Spain.

I had planed to do the Pyrenees a some point on my way home towards Denmark. I was in luck because so had John and Vicky, so we joined up on a campsite just North from Barcelona to do the trip together. Although I must admit to being a fair bit older than the Aussies, we had a great time together in Morocco, and so I was certain we would also have fun together doing the mountain-tracks zig-zaging from east to west between Spain and France.

Make sure to stop by at John and Vicky's blog at, John is a very talented photographer, and shoots with a lovely Leica.
