Our guide was Geordy and he did a wonderful job. We went to VIC really interesting because it was Saturday Oct 12, 2014 and the locals where having a farm market. Never saw so many mushrooms. Saw the oldest Roman ruins in all of Spain in VIC. Geordy told us to buy some food for lunch in the market so we could have a picnic in the mountains. Rode the zipper train up the Pryrenees, and nice resort near the top and a lift up to the top. We had a grand time but tired when we returned.
