Varwell Corner: Carcassonne

In a change from the usual guest appearance from the ever-delightful Burness, we have a new guest appearance, this time from another former travel companion, Varwell  - or just "Simon" to those who prefer using first names. Simon travelled with me during the second half of 2001, through Eastern Europe and some of the Middle East, and without me has travelled round the globe for a variety of causes and motives. Most notable among these, his love-hate relationship with the mullet hairstyle has seen him travel the globe in search of places called "Mullet", which has seen one book published and another on the way. These days he is becoming increasingly preoccupied with trains and Esperanto, as lovingly chronicled in his mammoth blog.

In July, with a group of us, Simon fully visited two Wonders with me, Carcassonne and the Millau Viaduct. In today's Varwell Corner, we see his views on Carcassonne, both from his blog and in a short interview.
