|Notre Dame de la Daurade|
From Saturday until today The Gid and his brother Steven were in town to visit. It was jam-packed with sightseeing and beer drinking and though tired, it’s left me with a sense of contentment I haven’t felt in a while.
One of the highlights of our trip was a modified version of the “Magical Mystery Tour” I took last year with my kids into Aude, Corbières, Languedoc-Rousillon, etc.
Steve has been writing about his visit and has some great photos. I really enjoyed reading about places I’ve seen previously from the perspective of someone who’s never been to France. It also gives you an idea of just how much there is to see in southwest France.
We touched a sliver of a fragment and even then didn’t even begin to cover all the worth-a-visit sites the area has to offer, natural, historical and cultural. We didn’t do too bad though.
Please take a look a Steve’s post. It’ll spark some great ideas if you ever consider coming to Toulouse and environs.
And there was a black virgin, “Mare de Deu de Monserrat.”
