Last February I visited the Pyrenees for the first time. I think my days of “just” going for a week-long blast of skiing are over, (I blame my knees), so this was an ideal break: I got to ski, but I also stayed overnight on top of a mountain with its own astronomical observatory and visited the town of Lourdes too, which has always piqued my curiosity. Anyway, read all about it here, in my article that appeared in the Times a few weeks ago.
