France & spain

This trip was the beginning of my love for long solo road trip. I hit the road for 3 and a half weeks, drove 6000 km in my old Ford Mondeo, put a mattress in the back and camped wild. It was late autumn in 2015 and the roads were empty and nature rich of rain and fresh air.

Roussillon is a village in the Provence famous for its ochre hills. It calls itself the most beautiful village in France for good reasons - the natural pigments are being used for walls and houses of all kinds which make this village a small orange miracle.

All journeys end at some point, but when the Camargue in France was on my way back home it made the way so much nicer.
