Cycling down the amazingly beautiful valley of the Tarn River between Millau and Albi (France), we came across the lovely village of Brousse-le-Château. These sorts of places fascinate me – purely because of their incredible age and rich history (and also the easy way their current inhabitants live with the latter).
I find it so hard to believe that people have walked the same little street as me for so many hundreds of years and wonder about all their stories.
Up above the village, towers belonging to the medieval castle are tantalising invitations for those who delight in the ancient medieval history of the region.
Then there are the current daily activities which still entertain – like my son having fun playing an imaginary air-guitar as he crossed the old gothic bridge which leads to the ancient cobblestoned roads of the village.
