One of the coolest parts of seeing the world from a cruise ship is that once you arrive in a port, there are so many tours to choose from, that you could literally take the same cruise 4 times, and basically have a different cruise each time!
The downside is that you only get a sample of what the area has to offer, as opposed to immersing yourself, so you really KNOW the area. I guess a good compromise would be if you could stay in each port 2 days, but the cruise lines don’t listen to me!
Anyway, for today’s adventure, we chose a visit to the Fortress at Salses de Chateau. It is a fort built in the late 1400s by the Spaniards to protect Spain from the French invaders. It’s significance is that it a well-preserved example of a fortification transitioning from medieval castle to more modern designs.
And what tour would be complete without wine tasting? This time it was at a wine shop, rather than a vineyard, but wine is wine, right?
I’m not a red wine drinker, so Mr. Tattered got to be a two-fisted drinker!
