The Medieval Walled City of Carcassonne, France

Carcassonne, France is famous for the UNESCO World Heritage Site Cité de Carcassonne, a medieval fortress and walled city located in the south of France. Its strategic location on the Aude plain, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, has made it a famous stop on the trade routes since neolithic era.

Sarah and I stopped here on our house hunting trip in Portugal, and it gave me another chance to try out my new DJI Mavic drone. I was even able to fly the drone from the balcony of our hotel just outside of Carcassonne. There were some great restaurants within the city walls and it was a great place to wander, explore and enjoy a mini-adventure.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
