    Morning All,
    If you haven't visited Albi you might find it a pleasant and interesting stop. There's an Aire right in the centre of the city, free for 48 hours but no services so fill up and empty before you get there. Read about it on my blog www.lovemotorhoming.com
    We really liked it.

    In the summer the Bishop's Palace gardens are stunning.

    Also the Toulouse - Lautrec museum is right near the aire and well worth a visit.

    Thank you for the update. Have belatedly subscribed to the blog and just had a lovely long read, punctuated by one coffee and cordial.

    Lovely writing style, makes me feel part of it and I can feel the passion. Brilliant.

    Keep up the good work. Clive

    Have to agree that the cathedral is beautiful but the inside is even more so. The painted ceilings and chapels are simply stunning.
    And as said the museum for Toulouse-Lautrec is superb. If you only think of him from all those posters then think again. A lot of his displayed work is changed on a regular basis. When we went a few years ago there was a small charcoal work of an old lady with a hood over her head. It was just a few strokes with a piece of charcoal but for me it was indeed a masterpiece.
