Five years ago in 2006 we left our large, brand new house in Co. Cork, which we’d built ourselves, for a two-hundred-year-old hovel in Creuse, France. Why, oh why?

This 105 kilometre (66 mile) walk along the Midi Canal begins in Toulouse and heads south-east through several country towns until it reaches Carcassonne and its beautifully preserved medieval city. Boat traffic moving through the locks provides an interesting distraction but, when the canal is quiet, it is easy to imagine horses plodding along the same tow path, pulling their barges behind them.
