January 6.
No problems catching the train this time. The journey was pleasant, especially along the banks of the Rhone river and coming into Avignon. I had a nice breakfast at the station as I was a bit early for check-in at the airbnb. When I got there, I was greeted by Camelia and her greyhound. The house was pretty fancy and gated. Later, I would be introduced to the family – hubby, seven year old daughter and two year old son (who would have at least one tantrum a day).  My room was really well equipped with a coffee machine, TV and local guides and maps. My own bathroom was also very modern. I’d booked in for six days thinking that this was the first time that I have been to a French town/city that was interesting enough to explore at my leisure. A nice change from the frantic train connections.

I slept well, knowing that I didn’t need to get up early for anything.
