Spent my last morning in Montpellier getting a delicious brunch. It's bitter sweet to be leaving. I am spending the next few days in Lyon with Joel's housemate's sister before coming back to (hopefully great weather) Canada.

Spent the day in Carcasonne! I explored this medieval city that I grew up knowing as a board game. If I ever teach grade 4 I have so many new ideas for Medieval times.

Had amazing weather for our hike through Les Calanques. I didn't know there was such a beautiful gem so close to Marseille.

Had an amazing day exploring parts of Marseille. We went to see some special exhibits at MuCEM but I liked the building even more than the art. Every good day has gelato. I tried lavender for the first time!

Spent the afternoon on the beach eating baguettes and cheese with these lovely ladies.

Had a fast and furious weekend in Barcelona with my mom. Went on a full day (8am-5pm) tour of Barcelona. I got to see some of Gaudi's works including the Familia Sagrada and Park Güell. Had some amazing food and checked out a bike festival. The weather did not cooperate but I had a great time and learned I need a new rain jacket.

I wanted to utilize the 1,60€ commuter bus and see something interesting. I managed to very successfully combine these two missions. I went to Grotte de Demoiselles and it was unlike any cave I've been to. The cathedral was massive and breathtaking and even in the rain the surrounding landscape was beautiful.

Had a low key Sunday drinking lattes and looking at art. Can you spot the iron arm in the Rue Bras de Fer?

The French are awful at making lines. They don't understand the concept and are quite impolite about it. After waiting forever to climb to the top of the church we were rewarded with a nice view.
