We arrived in Toulouse after an 8 hour bus ride. It was actually quite a nice ride.
For those leaving from Barcelona Sants, the Eurolines Bus station is across the street from the train station. You can pick up your prebooked ticket at the desk.
The bus was clean with large viewing windows and the scenery was beautiful.
|The bus to Toulouse was nice and clean and roomy!|
We stopped for lunch around 1 pm at a rest stop
where there was both a restaurant and a small market.
We picked up a baguette and some local cheese.
The bus DOES have a toilet for those (like me) with tiny bladders
and who worry about such things,
but I waited, and used this squat toilet at the bus stop.

We arrived at Toulouse and got a bit lost finding La Petite Alberge
but the walking was good after all that sitting.
|These little ceramic faces hold back people's window shutters.|
|Basilica St. Sernin|
This is a nice place.
Four beds to a room, a private kitchenette and bathroom.
|La Petite Alberge in Toulouse has a nice garden area.|
|The rooms have 4 beds and a nice kitchen.|
After we got settled in,
we went for a visit at the Basilica of St. Sernin.
|St. Vincent de Paul|
We went downstairs into
the Chapel of St. Epine
|The ceiling was beautifully painted|
|Shells, shells everywhere!|
|Plenty of Green Men in this Basilica!|
|One of the very ornate altars|
|This hangs above our heads in midair|
|Critters in every corner of the Cathedral!|
|Gold drenched Holy Mother and Child|
|Crucifix with 4 nails|
Back to the streets outside
for a little more exploration.
That's all for now.
The weather is beautiful.
We sleep with open windows tonight.
We have an early start in the morning
on the train to Moissac.
