Photo du Jour - Waiting For a Train

La Gare

Waiting to pick up my husband from the 20:17 train in Narbonne.
I've been to this station dozens of times, but it wasn't until I took this photo that I noticed the station was painted pink! Pin It

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Bonjour! I am a new reader and signed up as a follower last night after I browsed through your wonderful blog. My family is originally from Southern France (Mèze/Montpellier) and I remember very well the Narbonne train station. I looked at the picture this morning and thought that's exactly what Seattle needs in the spring: more buildings painted pink! Spring has been exceptionally chilly and wet here and I can't wait to travel home this summer. Looking forward to reading more posts from you. A bientôt.

I love French train stations. This brings back memories:-)

Another coincidence, my current post is about trains in France. Unfortunately I have not seen pink walled stations here in the US – they do have some grandiose stations though as in New York and Washington DC. I’d love to be in Narbonne right now.

Bonjour! Welcome and thanks for signing up as a follower. Yes, there are times when Seattle could definitely use a bit more color. :) I lived there for 12 years and remember a lot of grey. A bientôt!

I love them too. And I love taking the train!

I'll have to remember to look and see if any others in the region are painted pink.
I really enjoyed your train post!
