France: travelogue summer 2006

We visit France more often but this year we make a longer trip, almost 4 weeks. France is a big country and offers so many different landscapes, culture and history that a few weeks are actually far too few.

To Vulcania and the Puy de Dôme
Driving around Clermont-Ferrand
To the Monts Dore (zouthwest of Clermont)
Through the Tarn gorge
The famous bridge near Millau
Chaos de Montpellier-le-Vieux and Gorges de la Jonte
Aven Armand and a long trip
To the north, Gorges de la Truyere
Via Albi to the mediterranean coast near Narbonne
To Gruissan and Narbonne
A day to the beach, Narbonne-Plage
To the fortress of Carcassonne and castles of Cathars
To Tautavel and the Corbières (and the garage)
A relaxing day on the beach of the Mediterranean
One more day at the beach and our car is fixed
Via the Gorges de l'Ardeche to the Alps
We follow a fossile route from Digne-les-Bains
Through the Gorges du Verdon, the Grand Canyon of France
A visit to the Cote d'Azur and Monaco
A quiet day near Lac de Castillon
