The Pink City

Day 4 - 6

semi-overcast 2 °C

So the last couple of days have been uneventful but very relaxing!

We came into Toulouse by train and found ourselves in the middle of a cute French town which they call the pink city. On our way to the temporary home we strolled down a beautifully lit street full of wonderful shops and no joke about 6 Zara's, the street was full of Christmas lights and just overall very charming!

When we arrived at where we were staying we found it to be the cutest 18th century attic!

After a day of relaxation we decided to continue to theme and head out for dinner.
Lets just say it lived up to French reputation, I had a foi gras pâté to start followed by a cassoulet of duck and Toulouse sausage while Ally had rolled salmon with capsicum anchovies and eggplant and for a main grilled fillet of beef with pomme frit (potatoes)
Then we shared a dessert which had something to do with mandarins which was also amazing.

The restaurant was a bit too fancy to take photos unfortunately!

The next day we decided to wake up early and see the sites of Toulouse, Of which there aren't too many!

We started with the Pont Neuf, which is the main bridge of Toulouse, also it's oldest withstanding many invasions

Now we were off to St Micheal Basillica, Toulouse's main church.
This was very surprising as I didn't expect it to be so nice! And a building we saw on the way.

And then finally it was place du capitole where we strolled through the Christmas markets.
