We drove up to see the Pont du Gard which is a Roman bridge come aqueduct, just 2000 years old. The modern additions were done by Napoleon - still older than any modern construction in Australia.
Then to Arle where there were equally ancient Roman constructions including a coliseum. We mainly went there to see where Vincent van Gogh did his best work. The famous cafe he painted is sadly a bit twee and touristy, but it was good to imagine him being there. Also saw the part of the river where he did the starry night paintings.
Our night in Narbonne was lovely. Stayed at Domaine de Saint Domingue (google it) a beautiful country villa- very grand, very relaxing between days of driving. Another place we wished we could stay longer. Really enjoying summer treats early - fruit salad breakfast - fresh pears, nectarines, grapes, fresh squeezed orange juice, raspberries, strawberries, the list goes on.
Today we drive to Andorra. Should be interesting as this is usually a winter destination for skiing. Got our first sight of the Pyrenees, imagined Mark and Denise walking over it and immediately felt very tired.
On Saturday we pick up the boat for our canal trip so wifi will definitely be over then. Will be looking forward to the journey, but will miss the contact with kidlies.
