Andorra was all I hoped it would be. Andorra la Vella sits right in the valley of the mountains and the views are amazing. The city was clean, tidy and bustling with people. The shops are plentiful and there are enough restaurants to suit a wide variety of tastes and cuisines. Solo experience: I really enjoyed the fact that I could walk around the town at night and on my own. Places on a business trip: I went to yo visit a school as I am going to be teaching there in September. I liked: A chance to go somewhere I hadn't been to before.   Read more

The weather was good although it is an Island with micro-climates. Spent half a day on a trip to Nunn's Valley where it was warm and sunny but only slightly higher up in the hills you were in damp cloud and couldn't see a thing. Probably not a place to go for a sea and sandy beach though. The people were friendly and in the main spoke some English. There is a good choice of restaurants although as a single traveller I found the food in the hotel perfectly adequate. The nightlife is not so great I would imagine, although I am of an age where I am quite happy to just enjoy a drink in the hotel bar. Travelled alone: Yes, all the time. I love it. Places you saw: Nunn's Valley and the area around Funchal. Liked most on the trip: The scenery.   Read more
