Albi. Situated on the River Tarn visiting Albi for us was what I imagine going back to London will be like. There was traffic, there were people, there were shops, it was busy! It's amazing how quickly we have become accustomed to the slower pace of country life. Reuben didn't understand why we kept stopping the car...it's called a traffic light Reuben, remember those?!
cathedral. So far this summer we've avoided restaurants with kids as it can be a challenge to get them to sit through a three course meal, but they managed it surprisingly well. We were slightly rushed towards the end as we had to head back down to the river to catch our boat.
We've been pretty public transport deprived since moving to France as we travel everywhere by car. So when we get the chance we like to take the boys on trains, boats or buses, as for them it really is an adventure. We chose the shortest boat trip which took us on a little circle on the Tarn. The tour was in French so we mostly took in the view. The riverside houses were lovely and we felt small as the imposing cathedral followed us around from above.
museum of miniatures where they found a collection of little houses and shops!
If you're in the area I recommend Albi as a place to visit. The old town really is pretty to walk around and there's plently to do in a day. I'm sure we'll be back at some point as I would like to visit the cathedral and perhaps take a longer boat trip down the Tarn.
