Cite de Carcassonne – Third time’s the charm.. not really

France, Cité de Carcassonne

In the midst of uploading a ton of photos on to Flickr. So here’s more of France, specifically Carcassonne.

It was really out of the way but it was the only place that LF (because he played the game and made it a point to play that game while he was there) had requested so we had to make a trip there. It was totally worth it, one of our favorite towns. Then again, we did liked most of the towns we visited.

We arrived at Carcassonne in the late afternoon to super awesome weather, not too cold with clear blue skies. Checked in and made our way to Cite de Carcassonnee but decided to spend a full day exploring the cite the next day instead. Wrong move. It rained for the next 2 days that we were there. All in all, we made 4 attempts to explore the cite in 3 days and finally went ahead despite the rain.

This was taken when on the day we arrived. Beautiful clear blue skies.

We paid to enter the chateau, watched a film on the history of the fortified city and took a walk around the ramparts imagining that we were soldiers on patrol in a bid to protect our beloved city and its people. Well, the video had my imagination run wild.

Just realized that I don’t take many photos when it rains. Figures.
