Paris to Moissac

This entry is part 2 of 33 in the series Part 2: Moissac to Puente la Reina

Gite Ultreia (80€, dp)*

Our Garden in Flower

We have a delicious breakfast… café lait chaud, croissants, rolls with cheese (which we pilfer for our lunch), and an egg for Nick.  The company is lively – chamber musicians from San Juan Capistrano performing in Paris.  We walk to the train station after breakfast, travel six hours to Montebaun, then transfer to a train on to Moissac.  We arrive at 6:00 PM, and right across the street, check into our Gite Ultreia. We have our own room, cozy if cluttered.  Dinner is at 7:00 PM.  The establishment is owned by an English couple, Rom Bates and his wife, so the fare is far from French but still tasty… melon, tomato, cucumber, and prosciutto to start, then chicken en papier with boiled potatoes, ratatouille, green beans, French bread and wine, and ice cream with peaches. YUM!!!  Great company, as well.  We’re thrilled to be back on the Camino.
