What we did in Bordeaux

I miss Bordeaux

好想念波尔多啊!

I went with my sis the summer before last and we had a blast.It was really difficult to decide on destination as we wanted to go to so many places but we ended up flipping a coin and decided for Bordeaux at last.We were mostly in a tipsy state throughout the holiday but when wine is cheaper than tea for breakfast, it’s hard to resist.


应该是前两个夏天吧,我和我妹妹在没办法决定要去哪里旅游的时候,翻了一块硬币,结果就翻到了波尔多

记得那个假期我们都在喝酒,但是说真的不喝酒真的很对不起自己啊,因为酒,真的比茶来的便宜多了

你说,我点茶喝,对得起自己吗

Rainy days

Weather was miserable however, it rained most the days we were there but we did manage to get a few hours of sunlight each day

我记得那时候的天气就没那么好,一直都是阵雨的。还好天还眷顾我们,在偶尔的时候还给了我们几个小时的阳光。那倒是挺过瘾的

We stayed in this charming little airbnb(unfortunately I can’t find the link anymore) but it was just above a super lively street, which meant that we had noise till late night and the long summer hours didn’t make it easier for us to rest. However, it was so incredibly convenient for us to get around town.

住宿就Airbnb 解决了。我记得那时候因为夏天,天都好长,所以十一点的时候还听到好多人在楼下的餐厅聊天。还好我和我妹妹那时候也真的走了好多路,所以也真的累了,外面的声,也没什么影响到我们的睡眠质量啊

Food

I don’t think we ever did take a break from eating. I’m not ever a big eater but even my sister was amazed at the amount of food we both manage to consume throughout our trip. It was very difficult to find restaurants that served less than decent food in Bordeaux, and the easiest indication to spot a good restaurant is if you just follow the crowd. The only thing I was probably disappointed was that we didn’t manage to find a place that serve pastry that really wow-ed us. Everything else was brilliant

整趟旅游我们还真的除了吃,就是喝,然后就是再吃。要找个不好吃的餐厅还真的挺难的。我觉得波尔多的食物水平还挺高的,而且,真的很便宜。吃的地方的功课我们也没特别找了很多,有时候就跟着人潮选了餐厅。反正多人吃的地方,估计,也错不了多少了吧哈哈哈。唯一有点失望的是整趟旅程都没吃到一个觉得特别好吃的牛角面包,但是这也其实就小事。

Around Bordeaux

It was really easy getting around Bordeaux. You either walk, or you catch a train if the walk is a little too far for your liking.
Le miroir d’eau was def my fav spot around Bordeaux but the parks were a good place to chill too

之前就说咯,在波尔多的时候我们的确走了好多,毕竟很多地方都好靠近。但是如果你不太想要走路的话,可以搭地铁。波尔多还算是蛮适合散步的地方,你也不需要太过担心车子的问题,人,也特别的友善

Day Trips

We made 2 day trips out of the city and visited Arcachon and Saint Emilion. Both places was just a train ride away and it was really easy to get around IF it was good weather. There’s actually abit more to wine in Saint Emilion

我们在波尔多的其中两天还出游了。当然其中一个经典的圣埃美隆,搭个火车就到了,记得看下时间表,因为火车站与圣埃美隆中心还是有点小距离的。

We took a day tour around the city, which included a wine tasting tour and visited the Monolithic church(strongly recommended)

We also took the train out to Arcachon on one of the days. Unfortunately for us, it was raining quite a fair lot so we had to cancel our trip to the sand dunes and stayed in for just oysters. I have to say it still sounded like a great idea to me hah.

如果你喜欢吃生蚝的话,还会建议你去阿卡雄。

But all in all it was a good trip and I def would say I’d make another trip back to some of the other areas of Bordeaux.
