Dijon 11-13 Oct

Sunday, 7 Nov 2010 | Views [375]

It took us 6.5 hrs (by train) to head back north to Dijon (Burgundy region). My first impression of Dijon wasn’t good as I exited the train station. Construction left, right and centre. However as I got to the city centre (10 minutes walking distance ... Read more >

Nice 9-10 Oct

Sunday, 7 Nov 2010 | Views [278]

About 2.5 hrs (by train) east of Aix is the coastal city of Nice. It’s a tacky city with its heavily made-up ‘historical’ buildings. Their ‘old’ city cannot compare to the towns of Sarlat nor Carcassonne. Its hub seems to be the many clusters of restaurants ... Read more >

Aix-en-Provence 8 Oct

Sunday, 7 Nov 2010 | Views [285]

Just 1-hr by train southeast of Avignon is the town of Aix (pronounced ‘X’). It is another beautiful town with a maze of cobblestone alleyways lined with expensive stores and restaurants. Certain bars/restaurants justify the sky-high prices just because ... Read more >

Avignon, Arles 6-7 Oct

Thursday, 14 Oct 2010 | Views [352]

From Carcassone, we headed east to Avignon (in Provence). It is a town but with the elegance of Paris. Tree lined streets compliment the many elegantly maintained architectures and upmarket stores. The main attractions are the Papal Palace and Pont ... Read more >

Wednesday, 13 Oct 2010 | Views [335]

From Bordeaux, we headed south east to the town of Carcassone. A fortified medieval town dating back to 5 th century BC. The city is surrounded by walls, which once protected a castle, church and its many inhabitants. (There are approx 115 people still ... Read more >

We again headed southwest and took the train to Bordeaux (one of the world’s best wine regions). The city itself was unimpressive, a Paris wannabe but lacking the maintenance and care. It was a pity, the architecture of the buildings were actually lovely ... Read more >

After Paris we headed southwest towards the region of the Loire Valley, about 1.5hrs by TGV (fast) train (…this is the 1 st of many train trips using my 2-month Eurail pass) and based ourselves in the city of Tours. The city was the launching pad for ... Read more >

Arrived in Paris 23rd Sept from Sydney via Bangkok and London.  I thought I was fine, but eventually reached the apartment with a migraine, heavy & tired body and soon ended up with food poisoning.  After dropping off our backpacks at the apartment, ... Read more >
