Back from paradise. Verdict: delightful.

I wasn’t sure whether or not I would write a detailed post about cycling in Montpellier until I went. Then it became abundantly clear: not a chance.

Why? Because it’s just lovely, and the reason why is quite simply that the old town is closed to motor traffic.

Compare and contrast. Pavement dining in Montpellier (taken from a cafe table – you can see in the corner the top of my rum, gin, campiri, red martini and white martini “cocktail”):

Pavement dining in London (can you spot them?):

Cafe O'Porto

There’s nothing else to say. Take cars, taxis and HGVs out of your life (OK and make it a little sunnier) and suddenly everything is tranquille. Sadly, this is London. Normal service will be resumed.
