Travels in the Pyrenees free pdf Excerpt from Travels in the Pyrenees: Including Andorra and the Coast From Barcelona to Carcassonne The Atlantic Pyrenees from St. Jean de Luz to Luchon have long been known to the English traveller. But how few know anything of the Eastern Pyrenees, whose valleys run down to replenish the inland sea! Even Monsieur Taine, who travels in the Pyrenees and could compress a book into a sentence, had nothing to say about them. Yet this country, with its superb climate and historic associations, is worthy of a wider fame. How well I remember my own first introduction to it a lustrum ago! It was early in April, and I was returning homewards from the East. Our English summer was yet a long way off, and I was invited to stay at "Vernet in the Pyrenees." I had never heard of Vernet, but I was told that I should get there if I took the night train from Marseilles, and with this comforting assurance I went to sleep. But at Narbonne I was hastily turned out upon a cold platform, and the train went flying through the night across France to Bordeaux and Toulouse. And yet again at Perpignan, whose fame had never reached my ears, I was dropped by the wayside, for it seemed that this train was bound for Spain. It was not till the dawn had come that I was able to resume my troubled journey to Vernet-les-Bains. The train now seemed to leave the open seacoast and turn up a wide plain with hills upon either side- and there, right above me, rose into the cloudless sky the most wonderful snow-mountain, glistening with radiance in the bright morning light. Surely had I never seen anything more beautiful than this! It might have been Olympus himself, it rose so majestically above the plain.
