From Carcassone to Port Novelle/Narbonne

Well, I would say one of the days with the most scenic views and different landscapes…

It started yesterday evening when I was thinking how to detour the bad cyclepath along the canal – as every cyclist I met told me to do so.

I enjoyed the nightview of the castle from my room in the Abbey and checked this out on my IGN map.


While breakfast I asked the priest who spoke perfect german – and he knew this part of the country as he lived there already – bingo!

So the 100 km started relaxed on a 25 km carnalpath with shadow at nearly 30 C.


After that I took some smaller and one big road – and I could see the wineries – also one organic!


Approaching Narbonne I didn’t know what is waiting for me – again it was the way quality I was warned about.
But it was better than I hoped – and again I was set to a new landscape – finally I reached (nearly) the mediterranean sea.



And so I found a nice municipal camping in Port de la Novelle – and a restaurant with WiFi where next to me a kid got her birthdaycake – what do you want more…

Tomorrow I’m going to spend my day in the reserve africane next to Sigean – have a look!


After this visit – wich will last the whole day – I’m going to take the train to Sète and sleep in the now reserved youthhostel. M.

Preparations Part two…from Bordeaux via Carcassonne and Narbonne to the Reservée Africane/Sigean

Now the second part is fixed – even with cup of tea on my laptop…
I´m going to start in the wonderful city of Bordeaux and will follow an old railway track wich is now an veloroute – down to La Réole.Here I´ll take the train to Moissac and stay perhaps on a nice campingsite next to the city.

On the next day the track will go from Moissac to Toulouse along the canal – than taking again the train to Carcassonne where I´ll visit this ancient town. Hopefully I can stay in the youth hostel wich is situated in the old town.

On day 3 I´ll ride along the canal du midi next to Narbonne and than exploring the Canal de la Robine.

The last day will be the highlight – a visit to http://www.reserveafricainesigean.fr/.

Finally I will take the train to Séte where I´m going to stay the last night of this part of the journey…
