I got a train to Narbonne, and then headed to Durban-Corbières, a tiny town in Languedoc-Rousillon. I spent a fantastic fortnight there with my family, relaxing in the hot sun, swimming in the pool, eating good food and enjoying a good life. I went for one moderately long cycle around the hills but otherwise did more or less nothing. My travel style is not normally like that; a holiday without uncertainty, hardship and fear is not really a holiday by my reckoning. But just every now and again it's nice to actually relax. The view from our villa to the crumbling castle was more or less my only view of the outside world for two weeks.

Two weeks of slothful living passed very quickly, and all too soon it was time to pack up and go.
