Wall of Cards

After collecting my son and his family included my brand new grandson from Carcassonne airport we headed off to do the tourist thing and have a look around the medieval walled city of Carcassonne.

It is a magnificent example of this type of fortified city. More info can be found here: Carcassonne

It is a tourist trap, well worth the visit but for me just early enough in the season to make bearable.

Oh and you will be seeing some photographs of my grandson soon.

How right you are, I've been there twice. Great trip but not in the height of the season.
Looking forward to the pics of Luca.
I am running the funny caption competition over at Sainte Maxime DP today so come on over.

It's hard to appreciate because it's so overwhelmingly touristic.

Gosh.. it never occured to me that there was a real Carcassonne. I thought it was just an inventive name for a strategy game I once played.
