Travel tips after the World Retreat 2016

My wife Joy and I spent a week hiking in the Pyrenees last summer, in the Aigüestortes national park close to the site of next year’s World Retreat.

We took a taxi from the retreat centre to Cavallers further up the Boí Valley and started walking, following this route: Cavallers – Refugi Joan Ventosa i Calvell – Refugi de Colomèrs – Refugi Amitges – Refugi J. M. Blanc – – Refugi Estany Llong – Aigüestortes – and then a taxi down to Pont de Suert, to catch the bus for Barcelona. All in all a fantastic week, with not too long marches, but not too short either, and with a very varied scenery, and great weather throughout the week.
