I wanted to get up early in the morning but couldn’t. I was too tired to get up. I had to took a train to Carcassonne at 10:40 which was already too late. I arrived at Carcassonne, it was rainy. But the town was not too big so I was able to get to the attraction. The castle has really dramatic view just like Avignon, but less. It was not just a castle but also a small town itself. It contains a small village in it. I had a lunch for its regional cuisine in a restaurant in that town.
I took a train to Toulouse after lunch. I sent a text message to John in London that I’d go to Spain tomorrow. He replied me he’s working as a full-time worker. It made me to think about my life and job.
I arrived at Toulouse before closing time of tourist office but unfortunately there was a festival so I couldn’t find any cheap place to stay. I got a map but it was not the problem. I had to find a hostel first. I got back to the station and tried to find it. Also I asked to assistants for many times about tomorrow’s trains to Barcelona because I found the book about rail time tables were not exactly correct sometimes so I needed to make it sure that if the trains would be running tomorrow. My book is August edition and now is October. Already two months has passed. Now I can feel it became autumn even here is south of France. The weather is not always hot like I expected. I hardly found a hostel an hour and half away by train, and waiting for that now.
