The day that I visited Narbonne it was not quite so clear and sunny; in fact it rained most of the time I was there. I still haven't repaired or replaced my umbrella so I got very wet. Narbonne was very pretty despite the rain, and I particularly enjoyed looking around the Hôtel de Ville (City Hall) as it connected to the cathedral and you could climb a defence tower in order to get fantastic views of the city. Considering how poor the visibility was when I visited, I imagine that the views are even better in a clear day. I also squeezed a crepe into my visit: it was filled with caramel, grand marnier and orange, though I have to admit that the grand marnier was a little bit overpowering. For all the cake I eat, I'm actually more of a savoury crepe girl.

This morning I took a train back to Barcelona, where I'm staying until Wednesday. I am itching to bake something again - a fortnight is a long time! I have no doubt that I will do plenty of baking when I get back, so if any of you are worried that this is becoming a travel blog instead, worry not!
