After rendezvousing with Benny, Ann & Joe at Gatwick Airport, we checked in and went through Customs and boarded our flight.
The fight was quite scenic as we flew over the South East of England, seeing the white cliffs of Dover in the distance and then some wind farms just off the English coast. The French countryside was a mix of green and brown and lots of irregular field shapes.
It took about an hour and a half as we had a tail wind and we were met at Toulouse Airport by a transfer service to take us to Carcassone. It was 28 degrees in Toulouse, which was a welcome change from the 16 or so degrees that it had been in England over the last week or so.
The drive took about an hour (at high speed!) and was quite scenic as we saw a lot of fields of grain and dead sunflowers ready for harvest. This must have been what all the brown fields were from the sky.
We checked into our hotel (the Mercure Carcassone Porte de la Cite Hotel) and then had a drink in the outside courtyard, prior to moving inside for
dinner in the hotel restaurant.
