I can see the sea! – day 12

An early start & breakfast on the road. When we set off the hotel kindly informed us that the journey to barcelona takes 3 hours by car. For us however there are 3 days to go. The hills are getting closer & we have seen the first signs for Barcelona.
The terrain has changed noticeably to rocky & mountainous. We even had to pedal downhill!
En route today we saw a wine bottling van in corbieres. The vans travel between vineyards when they are ready to bottle.
We have seen the sea & stopped to admire some flamingoes, seen for the first time in their natural habitat.
Perpignan is a beautiful city & seems the perfect location to enjoy our last meal in France. Over the border to Spain tomorrow.
