      ... form of entertainment of modern day is bull fights, yes bull fights, it is the only town in France that hosts bull fights and allows bulls to be killed during the season each year. Quite a spectacle. Next we headed to The Forum, La Maison Carree which is where the inception of Nimes was founded and another building built in the 1st century AD. I am starting to think that everything we see is super old. Super cool. Brendan had a wonderful ...

      What a glorious day to wake up to. The sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky and not a puff of wind, today is going to be awesome. We headed to Remoulins just north of Nimes to have a look at even grander Aqueduct than that at Castries and it didn't disappoint. Pont Du Gard. This piece of engineering is truly spectacular and to think that it was constructed in the years around 50AD is even more amazing and the fact that it is still standing is significant. This aqueduct ...

It was a great find and we are so pleased to have discovered this little ...

      ... out by the Romans who were the engineers with the locals doing the labouring. It is reckoned that it took 15 years to build the whole aqueduct which runs from its source at Uzes to its finish at Nimes. The actual Pont over the River Gardon took 5 years to build and from the photos you will see that it has three tiers. The Roman Engineers worked out that to make the flow from start to finish the source would have to have at least 35,000 cubic metres of water per day ...

      ... too much Reblochon cheese, as I didn’t lose any weight – which is especially sad when you remember that downhill skiing burns about 400 calories an hour. Far, far too many hot chocolates then!

      We did also have a massive 3 course meal on Wednesday night, and then a nice lunch on Friday as well, so I guess I can’t be tooooo surprised that all the exercise didn’t pay off. Skiing may be good exercise, but it does make you hungry! ...
