We got to Paris without incident, but cycling the 5km. from the Gare du Nord to the Gare Montparnasse proved too complicated for us, and we missed the train.
As a result, we had a relaxing 5hrs in Paris while we waited for the overnight train. Paris is a beautiful city and we wandered along the Seine before eating in a delicious little restaurant.
The train down to Toulouse was really uncomfortable, the reclining seats were awkward and the carriage was too light, so we didn’t really sleep very much.
We arrived at 6.30am, had breakfast and then headed out to Lavelette and spent a pleasant day with Herbert and Brigitte. The house is a beautiful old farmhouse and our houses were generous and accommodating.
The next day we would be cycling 110 km to Mirande.
