In May 2014, my employer - Bezeq - sent all awarded exceptional employees of 2013 for a free trip in the Pyrenees Mountains in western Europe. The trip was mostly comprised of challenging drives in a group of CUVs (driven by us) up and down the mountains in Catalonia and Andorra, and a few adventurous sports activities.
The photos in this page were taken by various people from the group, including me.

We landed in Barcelona on Sunday, May 11, divided into groups and started driving the CUVs towards the Pyrenees. My group comprised of me, and three of my good friends from work. For some reason, we drove with a Bolivia flag attached to the vehicle, attracting confused stares and smiles from other vehicles on the road and passers by.
The next day we drove to a rope park... somewhere... and had a picnic on the park's grounds. We continued with a field drive up and down the mountains and into La Massana in Andorra, where we stayed for the night in the beautiful AnyosPark hotel.
On Tuesday the group went on a Canyoning activity nearby to the hotel. Later that evening, we went for a ride on the Tobotronc, an alpine slide in Andorra's Naturlandia adventure park. It is the longest alpine slide in the world. From there we drove to the town Sort in Catalonia, and stayed in a hotel located right next to the Noguera Pallaresa river.
On May 14 we went on a rafting trip in the Noguera Pallaresa river. After that, we drove for (too many) hours up and down the mountains, and back to the hotel in Sort.
The last day of the trip started with some more field driving, before driving all the way back to Barcelona, where we enjoyed a few hours in La Rambla, before heading to the airport and flying back to Israel.
