All for my wonderful readers, It was hard, but someone had to do it. We are going to be doing a series of travel guides on the area but here is the first of Toulouse in Instagram Pictures.

Dinner at J’GO Toulouse. The best pork and chips I have ever had in my life.

While we were having dinner a brass band started up outside and played ‘Funky Town’.


It was Special National Music Day. The day that all of France get together and party. It was a lot of fun.


My hotel room is top left. Needless to say there was no point in getting an early night. So we partied.

The next day we went to the Cite de l’espace. An amazing space museum and theme park. I saw rock from mars and the moon, saw astronauts suits. I also experienced walking on the moon thanks to the Moon Runner. I also spent some time in a Space Capsule and saw a great temporary Mars exhibition, With David Leach-Davies of 69 Magazine.
