Weekend adventures in Languedoc-Roussillon

My best friend and I were in Languedoc-Roussillon, a region of southern France that is often overlooked in favor of the far more popular Riviera.

Rebellion Against My Paris Guidebook

Back at the hotel, I fish out my copy of Time Out Paris, which is luckily still in the bin (I paid 8 dollars for it!) and turn to section on The Marais.

I’m ready to throw it back in the bin when I remember that all guidebooks are flat…that’s why we go to the places and don’t just buy the guidebooks! I suppose I’ll keep this one for a little longer after all in the hopes that there are other gems waiting to be discovered.
