Bonjour, I'm really excited to share with you my 17th heart route & 6th Country! Toulouse surprised me in soooo many ways, watch my video to find out my 3 reasons how, & the special reason why I did it!
I woke up in Toulouse the same morning I received some incredible news. My sister Helen had finally completed her mammoth 3007km trek across New Zealand with her boyfriend Alex! Their Te Aroa Charity walk was complete after 4 months of adventuring. Smiling from ear to ear I couldn't explain in words how proud I was of her... So I decided to show her instead.
Map: To see the 6.8km route click here - no live gps route due to little bit of a battery fight ;-)
Bike rental: Pierre Qui Roule www.pierrequiroule.fr
Highlights: great views along the La Garonne river, including Dôme de la Grave, Ecole des Beaux Arts. Cycling along Canal du Midi, Jardin Compans Caffarelli, the tasty food market on Boulevard D'Arcole
Hostel: La Petite Auberge de Saint Sernin
Grateful to: All the kind people I met along my route, who showed me the best bicycle paths, great tips & good tea!
