  • Tranquility
  • I will never forget what happened in those days. We were the last ones to buy tickets, one minute before close the ticket office. We went down with my princess from Pic du Midi and then we reached two peaks. On the second day, on the way back, we met a nice elderly gentleman with three young girls. As it turned out, he was the curator of these areas. He said he saw our exploits while walking down the pedestrian trail. He said we were "amazing" but also crazy. The photos we showed you won't get to see these views from the observation deck. From those days, for the next week we were only in the Pyrenees. Although our tourist base was by the ocean. From La Mongie you can start your fabulous. Pic du Midi is wonderful.
