This trip was in his bucket list, ever since I fist met Jim he was talking about doing a canal trip in France. In the other side it was a friend of ours dream too. So she joined from Palamos and the three of us started this beautiful adventure.

After introducing the Captain and crew lets check out the boats.

French people are outdoor people. The canal gets used by kayakers, sport fishermen, bikers, people sightseeing, and runners. I asked a Frenchman how do they manage to stay slim after a 5 course meal, his answer was decathlon.
We visited Carcassonne by car and it was so worse it. I have never seen a castle but in movies and books. I was really mesmerized by the beautiful preservation and the history.
We pick up the boat in Capestang and from there we started cruising north toward Carcassonne. We could not get there and back in one week so we just took our time and enjoyed the trip.
