Scooter Tricks - Andorra La Vella

 
 

Sometimes you end up somewhere you never expected.  

I had planned on traveling to Andorra to hike.  Scratch that, I hadn't even planned on driving to Andorra from Girona, but like all plans, they are meant to change.  In my case, I found myself at a skate pack in the center of Andorra La Vella, watching kids do tricks on a half-pipe... on scooters.

Andorra itself is a small, mountainous, landlocked country between Spain and France.  It is best known as a ski destination, and a tax-free haven.  As I wandered the streets looking for a guesthouse, I kept seeing kids on their scooters heading towards the center.  So I followed.

 

I'll be honest, I didn't know that kids did tricks on scooters.

Either way, in the sea of scooter kids, there was one skater.  Really, what do I know, I skated on inlines as a kid...

Thanks to Argus Car Hire for providing me with a car to drive around the Pyrenees, Costa Brava,  and Andorra.  I wouldn't have made it to Andorra without it!
