I miss Bordeaux
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
