Road trip to Cordes sur ciel

Seven days and counting until we leave for Bolivia and what better way to prepare than go on a road trip!

On the last Sunday in October, the family got in the car and hit the road. Originally our destination was the town of Roquefort, but a little one in the back seat made us reconsider such a long route.

We meandered our way through the vinyards of Gaillac until we reached the village of Cordes sur ciel, a fortified town that was built in 1222 by the Count of Toulouse.

We were blessed with good weather, and with the good advice of a native, we ate at one of our best restaurants, ever! The pan-seared fois gras with peaches is still making us drool ... even SB had a four course meal. Tough to be a parent and be obliged to finish his food ...

After a walk around the ramparts we headed back to our car. SB was asleep before we knew it!
