Today we drove up the road into the Aveyron, a département of the Midi-Pyréenes region of France. We had a full program, including a visit to one of the one-hundred-most-beautiful-villages of France, of which I shall report shortly. But for now, I’d like to post solely about a portion of the drive there.
Five years ago my mother and my sister Diana joint me in a house hunting trip to this very region. After spending some time in and around Villefranche-de-Rouergue, we drove down from the mountains of the Massif Central into the Gard department and the Mediterranean coast. Back then, I was driving and couldn’t look around too much, let alone take pictures. Today I was a passenger, recording our trip on the freeway called A 75 over the breathtakingly awesome Viaduc de Millau, albeit in the reverse, going North. Disregarding directions and other peculiarities, these pictures (shot through a rather dirty windshield) are for you, Diana, companion and navigator of our awesome time in the South of France.
