Aeroplanes galore!

Traveling perfect circles with a hyperventilating 10 year old

While in Toulous we found an aviation museum! It’s called Aeroscopia. A couple of times I thought I was going to have to find Aidan a paper bag to breathe into; when we walked over to the Concorde I swear I saw his eyeballs begin to roll back up into his head…


It was a hike to get there; with me at the mercy of iPhone GPS…which I really haven’t figures out how to use yet…I will admit to having carefully followed my little moving blue dot, oblivious to all in a deep state of concentration, only to look up to see that we had traveled in a circle to the exact (to within 1/10 of a meter…) spot from whence we began. I think it’s the fault of the little blue dot. Sometimes I follow it and we do just fine…capricious little blue bastard…

Anyway, I digress…

If we get back to Toulous some day, we will book ahead to take the Airbus factory tour in addition to visiting the museum again. It would have been fascinating, but foreigners have to book 48 hours in advance, providing passport information among other things, between Tuesdays and Fridays to get a ticket. We couldn’t make it happen this time.

And now back to Aeroscopia…Again, I am in the position to only do you a disservice with words. I will let our photos expound on our visit:
