If you asked me two months ago where Toulouse was, I’d probably respond “Hmm central Europe?” FYI it’s in the south of France, right above the Spanish border. But April and I found roundtrip plane tickets for 26€ so we decided to stop on over. Why not?! Actually a lot of the teachers from school raved about it, so I was pretty excited for my first weekend trip of 2017.
I arrived early Friday morning and April had to work a half day so I told her I’d get the lay of the land before she arrived. Not much land to see, to be honest. I headed to the center and saw the main plaza, then walked to the river. I stopped in some cathedrals, very pretty. Now looking at the pictures, I don’t remember how to distinguish them. (That happens to me a lot and to write my post I have to google the church to match the name to the pictures)
I kept walking walking walking until lunchtime. I had a warm ham and cheese sandwich on half a loaf of bread. Oh I forgot to mention I ate half a baguette for breakfast. This was not the trip to work on the 2017 less carbs new years resolution. 🙂
I felt like after 7 miles of walking and 6 hours, I had seen everything Toulouse had to offer. I headed to the hotel to rest and wait for April. Oh and then I booked us a car pool to Andorra for the following day to go skiing. See next post for my review of the Pyrenees and how I will never go skiing again.
