TripAdvisor Reviews Balladins Toulouse
Travel Blogs from Toulouse
First I have to say that I travelled first class from
Barcelona to Toulouse. It was pretty cool, nice big leather chairs, radio and
then later they played a movie. Gemma, Hector and I got there fairly late,
between 9:30 and 10:00. Dana and her friend Theresa (who is also doing this
program) met us at the train station and we found a bite to eat. We “got to”
watch T.V. that night for a bit and get a taste of what French television is

We had lunch at a restaurant above the market in Les Halles Victor Hugo. Good value and nice food at Le Magret for €19 each for three courses. We started with rounds of toasted ...
A straightforward journey - mostly. I hate markets! And even more when you have to divert and turn 10.2m of Monty and Smartie in a small space. But we got past l'isle Jourdain and made our way to Grisolles. Easy aire to find once we negotiated the one way system in Grisolles. Good parking behind a community building with easy access to water and waste dump. We had a lot ...
