As some of you, long time and loyal readers may know I (Steph) am originally from Toulouse in the south of France. I always loved my hometown even tho I always knew I would never stay here to spend the rest of my life.
It’s one of those ancient place (Archaeological evidence dates human settlement in Toulouse to the 8th century BC) that made it quite successful in the modern days. It is the home base of the European aerospace industry, with the headquarters of Airbus and CNES the largest space centre in Europe. Toulouse is also famous for its world renowned university founded in 1229 making it one of the oldest in Europe.
Toulouse is called La Ville Rose, The Pink City, for its distinctive brick architecture.
Check out those photos we took during previous visits [TOULOUSE THE PINK CITY/SOUTH OF FRANCE – OHLALA TOULOUSE – CARNET DE VOYAGE FROM TOULOUSE – WELCOME TO TOULOUSE – TAKE A RIDE WITH US IN TOULOUSE] Yes Toulouse is a great place to live or visit.
Our visit in the south was great and we were so happy to be able to spend some time with our family.
