Girona feels like an overlooked city, simply passed by many on their way to and from Barcelona. I did this myself a decade ago, but this time I will do my best to explore the streets and alleys.
I have arrived in Andorra, one of the smallest states in Europe. Hidden away high in the Pyrenees mountains, the country is secluded and seldom visited. The capital, Andorra la Vella, is one of the world’s highest capital cities at an altitude of 1029 meters.

Elia Locardi is a professional photographer and a traveling nomad. I’ve been following him for several years on various medias. Earlier this year it was announced that he was busy producing his very own series on travel and photography, called Moments In Time.
