Château Comtal, Carcassonne

New Flickr Set – Carcassonne, March 2015

Last weekend my oldest friend in the world and her husband spent a few days with us. They have been living in Paris for the last six months or so, and I can’t believe this was the first time we have seen them since they have been in Europe!

We decided to rent a car between the four of us and drive down to Carcassonne and spend Saturday night there. The weather was dreadful, but it was just so nice to catch up and explore somewhere new together that it didn’t really matter. Carcassonne is a beautiful mediaeval fortress and citadel/castle built over hundreds of years and a wonderful little place to wander through.

I’ve known Jen since we were babies together and our mothers are very good friends back home in Melbourne. We will hopefully be able to return the visit next month when Calexico play in Paris.
