With spring approaching, what better than to go south and have a little taste of this beautiful season?
Already for a while, Toulouse and Marseille have been at the top of my “Bucket list” with their characteristic architecture, their typical dishes, Toulouse with its beautiful view of the Garonne and Marseille on the Mediterranean … Sincerely, I couldn’t postpone this trip anymore (especially when I came across very cheap airfares). Let’s do this!!!
Wednesday 26 April 2017 – 18:00: Departure for just an hour and a half flight from Strasbourg. And boom! We are there, yes Toulouse !! With my little sister waiting for me at the airport, we quickly began to discuss our respective news and things that make us laugh.
Thursday, April 27, 2017 – 10:00: A quiet little sleep, then breakfast in a cafe not far from the center ( Bruegger’s Toulouse for the curious) and the day begins!
Wilson Fountain – Toulouse
Thursday, April 27, 2017 – 19:00: After a good walk in the city, about fifty photos I find my little sister for dinner then we return quietly to the apartment to rest.
