- Day 1:
- Up early for our drive to to the Pyrenees. Sorry about the map on here, it seems to have trouble finding where we are! We are heading for Castillon-en-Couserans in the mid Pyrenees to catch up with Guy's Irish friends who are also in France for a wedding, also in a castle (looks like it is the in thing to do.), only theirs is Indian!
