This is my first blog about the beautiful medieval city of Carcassone. Pictures will be uploaded when I am back in Ireland. I drove 6 hours from Manfaucon to Carcassone, and am staying with a delightful young man called Alex who I found on AirBandB. A five minute walk into the centre and in the other direction, a five minute walk to the “Citadel”. The views were stunning… across country in some of the most beautiful scenery I have seen anywhere.
