Greetings from the Languedoc

From a boat on the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne, Languedoc

Floating the Canal du Midi

our little group on a boat on the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne, Languedoc

Today I fell in love with a bottling machine, toured the largest still-intact Medieval fortified city in the world, ate Carcassonne Cassoulet on a boat, and drank some of the best $19 Methode Traditionelle that I’ll be buying as my everyday bubbles from now on because whoa-value-plus-yummy (did you know that Dom Perignon made his sparkling wine in St Hilaire, Languedoc and THEN moved North to Champagne and started making it there?).

I also put myself smack dab in the middle of an area where I have only occasional online access, and not the time to post, so I’ll likely not be back here till next week. In the meantime, I am posting some occasional photos on Twitter and Facebook. Cheers!
