Travel Blogs from Carcassonne
Woke early and caught a taxi to the train station. My train left Paris at 9.42 am and I arrived in Carcassonne at 5.15 pm. How come that tired me out?
Found where I was booked into (about a 5 min walk from the station) then went out, got some dinner.
I was back in my room by 8 pm and well asleep by 9.
Didn't wake up until 7.30 am!!! Not like me at all....bliss

... old city.
After the visit, we went for a cool and refreshing boat trip on the Canal du Midi for 2 hours, which took us out to the tree lined avenues and pass 2 canal locks.
We returned to our chateau hotel for a pleasant dinner in the gardens.

This is a lovely quaint French guest house. Very central to everything and very quiet. A lovely little court yard to sit and chillax in
