Andorra's stunning landscapes


As you may have heard by now, we're aiming to approve an iReport from every country in the world. This week, we got a little closer to that goal thanks to iReporter Rebecca Florence, who lives in Andorra.


Florence moved to Arinsal, Andorra, just over a year ago, and has spent her time letting others know about the country ever since. Andorra, nestled between Spain and France in the Pyrenees mountains, is Europe's sixth smallest nation with a population just under 84,000 in 2009.


Shortly after moving to Andorra, Florence created a travel website about the Pyrenees in hopes of making it easier for English-speaking travelers to visit there. "I now hold this country dear to my heart," she said. "There are so many things that make Andorra special."


Among Florence's favorite things about the tiny country are its stunning landscapes. Her photos show wild horses, stone huts, and picturesque churches among majestic mountains and sparkling lakes.



"I am almost certain that living amongst these amazing landscapes is most likely a contributor to the long life spans that Andorrans are said to have," Florence said. "Long life span or not, we are happy in Andorra, and are grateful, everyday, to have been given the chance to live in such a special place."


We're thrilled to welcome Florence to the iReport community and excited to learn more about Andorra. Be sure to check out her iReports, and if you live in or have visited one of the countries on our Global Challenge list, let us know.
