Spending the night underneath the Purple Pyrenees…..

Spending the night underneath the Purple Pyrenees…..

After a well considered half hour, the decision was taken… Carcassonne it was! But as with all the best laid plans…… As we approached the bakery to get the morning croissants, it was again discussed. “Sea or Mountains, which do you want?” I ventured…. I was a little surprised to hear that the sea had lost out…. so the plans shifted to Pau and the Pyrenees.

Fast forward the 6hr drive and 270miles…. we neared Pau, a large but largely uninspiring town at the foot of the Pyrennes. We moved on…. Onto Lourdes via numerous hairpin bends and steep climbs… Finally arriving to the see some beautiful citadels, cathedrals and stunning town halls…

With time running out, it was onto the Aire near to Lourdes and some school work/diary entries before bed…. but not before some fun on the campsite trampolines!!!
