Our first real look at France
Monday 10 September 2012 - Monday 10 September 2012
We ended up only going to Toulouse because it was on my preliminary map of what to see in France. We hadn't had internet, in order to do research, for a few days, so we decided to stick to my map.
Toulouse was almost our first look at France. We had camped in Biarritz the night before, and we found that very pretty. Actually, the funny thing was that our first look at France, in the morning, was a bunch of people carrying around baguettes. We decided to join in, so we bought some pastries for breakfast and a baguette for lunch. This started a tradition for us, and I guess it makes sense that when you are in France, you should make the most of the pastries.
Toulouse itself wasn't too bad. Pretty crowded, and the buildings weren't that special.
We found St Sernin Cathedral, but the parking we could find was for a school, so we made a quick photo trip around the cathedral, and then headed back to the car. The cathedral didn't appear to be open, so it was probably no loss.
There were some cool things to see on the way out of town, though.
