Visiting Katharina in France

Finally, here are some pictures from my visit to Katharina in France.

After a 60 hours trip (including a 18 hour stopover in South-Korea)

 

The temperature was a shock even considering that the winters in Pau are mild compared to Norway.

 

 


But anyway we did a lot of sight-seeing. One of the things we did in
Pau was to visit the castle there (In the background)


Toulouse

   

On one of the big trips we made we headed for the city Toulouse north-east of Pau (check a map)

Toulouse is famous for it architecture.


Gourette



           

The first weekend we headed for the mountains. The Pyrenees have many great skiing villages. One of them is Gourette with beautiful mountains and perfect weather.

 

Here we could go skiing, something I really have been missing in Australia.



San Sebastian

               

 

The second weekend of my visit in France we went to San Sebastian (Spain.)

San Sebastian is a popular vacation city in north-eastern Spain with big beaches and good surf.

San Sebastian is a part of the Basque area in Spain even though it did not show that much with

the exception of a few Basque flags and paint on Spanish flags.
As you can see we also visited a pretty good aquarium.
