France 2014: Road Trip to La Cité de Carcassonne

Our main plan had been to head down to Carcassonne, but we were glad to have seen Sarlat as well.

The old walled city of Carcassonne, covering an area of eleven hectares, is reminiscent of Le Mont St Michel up north. Popular amongst tourists, it presents  a challenge to take photos containing only the architecture.

 These photos were taken with a Canon IXUS 135 camera by yours truly.

The subject matter certainly helps take a good shot 🙂
