August 3, 2015: Cote d’Azur Road Trip, Day 1

Took the train from Barcelona (after saying goodbye to Kim – sad!) and picked the car up in Perpignan, France.

Day 1 of our Cote d’Azur road trip went as follows (pretty much entirely unplanned):    Perpignan –> Canet-en-Roussillon –> Peyriac de Mer –> Montpellier –> Marseille

Miles walked:                5.5
Miles transported:      ~300

Canet-en-Roussillon

And off we go! Took off from Perpignan and headed for Canet-en-Roussillon, an adorable little beach town on the Cote d’Azur, to check it out:

Peyriac de Mer

Made a coffee stop in this random and adorable little town along the way, which was home to a beautiful lake!
