11 Sept 2011 (Day 42)
Spent the whole day traveling from Cannes to Barcelona.
Train ride after train ride after train ride. There were a couple of transits too.
One of the transits was at Avignon, France. Well, I did not know about the place much but since I have an hour, I decided to take a walk outside the train station.
Wow! I didn't know that there were so much to see there. Apparently, Avignon is famous because it is the city that the Popes fled to during the corruption of Rome in the 14th century. The palace they built, "Le Palais des Papes", or the palace of popes, is the world's largest Gothic edifice.
(Notre Dame des Doms)
(Le Palais des Papes)
At that time, I just walked and walked and took photos. I didn't know what I was seeing but the place seemed touristy. I was rushing because I didn't have much time. It is an interesting place because of the buildings, structures and architecture there. The city is surrounded by walls (ramparts) that are still there today. A very fortified city indeed.
Ran back to the train station after a short excursion in Avignon and continued the journey to Barcelona.
Arrived in Barcelona, Spain late at night. Walked for 10-15mins and found my hostel. ZZzzzzzz.....
After stumbling upon the impressive city of Avignon, MY LIFE WAS NEVER, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE........................................EEEE.................................EEVER, THE SAME AGAIN!!!
