Carcassonne and the Canal Midi. Two more reasons to visit Languedoc. I did not go inside the castle, had been warned about that...tourist trap! But since the two hour float on the Midi was close by, I couldn't help to loop around it and a stop on the Old Bridge to gawk, and was super glad I did. The canal ride that departs from Homps is a great taste of canal life. Through tunnels of arched Plane trees (we call 'em Sycamores back home!), next to the vineyards, over a locke -- fun to float literally UP the river! But, hey, whats with all the plastic houseboats -- Winnebagos on water, please no!
