My very first trip to the south of Europe, across Germany to France and to Spain. Although the weather in Czech Republic promised spring, it was still snowing in the french town of Besançon. I decided to head south, to French riviera. I passed through windy Provence to Marseille. From the coastline I continued west to Perpignan where I spent some time. Then I crossed the border to Spain, passed the Pyrenees and ended up in Barcelona. There I enjoyed nice southern spring and the city free of tourists before the season. On my way back I crossed Switzerland through Geneva, Bern, Zurich to Constance.
