Mooching around Montpellier

By tram! I do love public transport, especially trams, like the Tube with a view… Anyway, sadly I had to get off the tram to mooch properly but it was definitely worth the effort. Friends will know that I have been to Montpellier before but this time the town was strangely deserted. Being just after Christmas little was open and the winding streets empty and quiet. I could sniff every step and wooden door without hindrance and ponder which corner to turn. Not that I get to choose of course…

It’s an intoxicating maze of stone and cobble dotted with little squares (triangles/hexagons/rectangles). It has a splendid cathedral, viaduct and modern sector.

Before that we’d zipped our way through the 650 miles from Calais, stopping only briefly.

Chateaudun was pretty, again medieval and cobbled. It too was extremely quiet but we found a small bar for a beer. It was unusually decorated as an aquarium but had a poster of a greyhound behind the bar so no complaints from me.

In fact the only complaint this week has been from Elaine whilst being driven over the Millau Viaduct. It is an incredible bridge but not for those with vertigo! Here’s Chateaudun…

Dogs on sites – Many small fluffy ones, a cat and a rabbit (yep, that was a close one)
