Toulouse to Carcassonne

We have finally sorted out our Mifi dongle from Three so can hopefully post updates more easily to the blog.

After 5 weeks of work we finished the vendange In Sauterns and headed to Bordeaux to meet our friend Jules and also get our van painted by a couple of graffiti artists we had previously met.  Alber V Times and Zarb Full Color.

We were picking the mouldy grapes known as noble rot to make the speciality sweet wine the region is famous for.

We made our way to Montauban near Toulouse to try and find some work picking apples, but unfortunately found out that the season had just finished.  

The next day we drove to Toulouse and caught an underground metro into the city centre and had a look around.  Toulouse had a very different feel to Bordeaux in terms of the architecture and style.

Today we headed to Carcossonne, a mix between Game Of Thrones and Disney Land.  A very beautiful walled city just south of Toulouse.
