Over the course of the next few hours, we covered the city pretty well, all the while searching for a public restroom. I am not sure how many of you have traveled in Europe, or maybe it is just a France thing, but there is a definite shortage of public, free, toilets around here. And for this girl, with my love of water and teeny-tiny bladder, it is very often a problem. So, my travel tips for you are #1- either don't drink very much when out in Europe, or #2- start prepping your bladder now, or #3- be prepared to spend a lot of money on pay toilets. But, I digress. Back to Aix. They had a GAP!!!! Ohhh happpyyyy dayyyyy! It was a really joyful moment for me because I love Gap, and also because the public RR we had been searching for was just outside. yehh!
Other great moments in Aix-
The tree-lined Cours Mirabeau with its fantastic fountains and fun market
Pizza-by-the-slice for lunch
The Quatre Dauphins fountain
La Rotonde fountain, leading the way into town
Fantastic local pastries and even better street musicians
And, our fantastic campground, although we could have lived without the 45 degree temps that night. brrrrrrr
