      It was a perfect day πŸ™‚ Seems like a lifetime ago now even though it was only about 3 weeks ago (if that) when we were there.

    The ferris wheel is an interesting touch.

      Hahah – you are not the first to mention that!! It adds a bit of character, doesn’t it? Makes everyone realise we weren’t really zapped back in time πŸ˜‰

    I love Carcassonne! I was there years ago and I still remember the Museum of Torture that was a mix of hilarious and creepy…

      We are not really fans of visiting the Museum of Tortures but we have seen plenty around Europe. It’s seems a little gruesome. But you say hilarious, maybe we need to visit one? πŸ˜‰
