Moissac, Canal du midi and the fortress of Carcassonne


It was really hard to leave this nice place with these friendly people – but early in the morning the pilgrims where on there path again.


Starting a new day with new adventures I took the canal.


Riding along this flat way you can think about what is important – and what not. I was  wondering if it would be a way for me to explore France, Spain or myself – I don’t know.
So if you’re on your way you’ll be many times alone…hmm


Approaching Toulousse where I took the train to Carcassonne 10 km before the city it began to be – let’s say ‘not nice’. Industrial zones, no signs, dirt – not really a place to go. And it was the same with the city and it’s station. Even if there were police with automatic guns I didn’t feel very secure…


Arriving in the big city of Carcassonne it was hard work to find my way through the streets and a Abbey as the auberge de jeunesse was fully booked.


But than I could explore the ancient town as most tourists have left it already. A marvelous fortress with an unbelievable range of walls and hidden places. And finally I found a small restaurant where they offered a vegetarian menu…and there I wrote this blog… M.
