Trip to Andorra: Seeing another Side of Europe

Have you been trip or travel to Andorra? Andorra is a small country lies in the middle of Spain and France. Visiting this place is like you visit another side of Europe which is so far away from the glamorous atmosphere. There are no skyscraper buildings, and or modern and luxurious villas. Most buildings in this country are more modest and most of them are made from stones. The people in Andorra mostly speak Spanish. The total width of the country is just like the width of Vatican and Liechtenstein joining into one. More interesting facts here that the people only cover about 8% of the whole country, the rest of it are jungles, lakes, river, and mountains.
