We woke up early for breakfast and to get to the airport for our flight. The flight to Frankfurt was delayed. We arrived in Frankfurt and drove on the autobahn to Michelle and Mathias. We stopped at a truck stop for lunch. We got up to 200km/h on the autobahn!
We arrived at M&M late afternoon and they have a beautiful home. I went shopping with Michelle. We had soup with flaedle to start and white asparagus with hollandaise sauce and potatoes for supper. Dessert was a chocolate and chilli ice cream with strawberries.
We were up bright and early to clean up and pack. Caught a taxi to the station in Villefranche-de-Lauragaus. Good thing we know how to use the ticket machine as the station office is closed until 10h25. We are taking the 09h48 train back to Toulouse.
We checked back into the hotel and then went shopping for things to bring home. We caught the metro to the other side of the Garonne. We had lunch on the river bank. We had a very long walk and got ice creams for tea. We went for a beer before heading back to the hotel to relax before supper.
We had a fantastic meal at Le Colombier. We walked nearly 10kms today.
We flew from Cape Town to Johannesburg and then took an overnight flight to Frankfurt.
We had breakfast in Frankfurt at the airport with Michelle and Jutta before catching a flight to Toulouse.
We checked into the hotel and had a shower before going shopping for food for the barge.
We took a walk around Toulouse, heading towards Capitol. We went back to the hotel to relax before heading out for the evening.
Had a lovely supper at La Ripaille. They were amazed we booked so early, but the overnight flight does not make for late nights. The owner only spoke French. We started off by selecting a local red wine.
Being in duck country I had rare duck breast.
and Dave sampled the cassoulet, which is a traditional dish of the region.
Dessert of course was a crème brûlée for me!
Dave usually finishes his meal with an espresso, but the owner told him that he had to order a Café Gourmand. Not knowing what to expect this arrived at the table.
