April 4th is the start of the Web-5 conference in Béziers, so on April 3rd we took the train to Paris. We’re happy we didn’t fly, as there’s a strike today in France by the air traffic controllers for the smaller airports.
We started by having breakfast (croissant, baguette, espresso, juice, etc.) at an amazing cafe, and walking around near Gare de Lyon. We then rushed over to the Montparnasse Tower… it was a sunny but hazy day, and with rain in the forecast, we decided it would be our best option to get a nice view of the city. The city did not disappoint, and we captured some nice photos of the city, and of course the Eiffel Tower.
tous à bord. We then took a nice train ride to Béziers, seeing a large section of the French countryside. The sun turned to rain by the time we arrived. After checking into our hotel, we did a quick trip around Béziers to see the Cathedral Saint Nazaire and a view of the L’orb river and the Pont Vieux bridge. We found another cafe before an amazing dinner with the conference speakers. It was great catching up with Robert Nyman, PEM, Sam Foster, Chris Barrett, and others at the event.
