    When geese fly the other way...

    January 29 in France ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    ...we must be going into the right direction.
    I can't stop mentioning it enough. It is hard work. Keeping Lieske on the road. And not everybody on route is happy to see us.
    We drove a small 320km today in almost 5 hours.
    I am proud of Nika, who fought against the road raging French, and frantic Spanish and Portuguese truck drivers around the very, very,very busy road aroud Bordeaux.
    It was really a torture.
    But we survived.
    Picked a strange camper place in Morcenx.
    But our neighbours are funny. And really in for a chat.
    We noticed that the temperature is getting better. 15° And it was longer light. Hmmm. Or is it just imagination?
    Tomorrow we are going to try to crawl up the Pyrenees.
    Wish us luck!

    Bordeaux, France

    June 11, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Bordeaux 11-13 June
    We had 2 full days (3 nights) in Bordeaux. Our accommodation was in a great location - near bridge Ponte de Pierre, the first bridge built in Bordeaux (on the orders of Napoleon Bonaparte).
    We walked the UNESCO Heritage trail - highlights: Gothic Cathédrale Saint-André, Place de la Bourse, centered on the Three Graces fountain, overlooks the Miroir d’Eau reflecting pool. Ponte Chaban-Delmas - 77 metres high, highest lift bridge in Europe. Grosse Cloche, historic town belfry and only remains of the old defensive gate of the 13th Century.
    We drove the wine-growing region.
    The Bordeaux region is naturally divided by the Gironde Estuary into a Left Bank area and a Right Bank area. We only had time to drive a small part of the Left Bank but it was a beautiful drive. A few samplings along the way but we found that most chateaux were closed unless you had booked a tasting.

    Bordeaux Day 1

    August 12, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    We woke up in Paris and with great sadness we got ready to move onto the next adventure. There is so much to see and do in Paris that we both agree it’s somewhere we would love to come back to. But on to Bordeaux. We caught our fast train which was super comfy and fast. Great way to travel. Pete says better than the plane!

    Arrived in Bordeaux and worked out the transit system and found our bnb, which is in a quiet neighbourhood in a 17th century apartment. Amazing building and a lovely hostess called Michelle.

    After settling in we headed out to explore and found our way to some of the sights in Bordeaux. We went to two art museums and tried to get in to a couple of things that were not open Monday’s, but we walked through some amazing parts of the old town. We were worn out, well our feet and calves were, so we headed back for a rest.

    Seems like the best way to do it as when we woke up we headed out for more exploring. Went to the mirror pools, which because of everyone walking in it wasn’t so much a mirror but still a beautiful building. Watched some line dancing, yes in Bordeaux and then wandered the old town until we found a dinner spot and then home. Really amazing how we are finding our way around without too much trouble! Google maps does help 😊😊

    Exploring Bordeaux

    August 13, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Definitely a beautiful place to stay and explore. We are pretty proud of ourselves managing to work out the public transport wherever we go. The weather is perfect and this morning we set off to the La Cite du Vin where we spent about three hours walking around this amazing museum of wine and wine making. The tour was topped off with a glass of wine on the eighth floor with an amazing view of the city. We then caught the ferry back to the old town and wandered around. Had some yummy lunch and then went to the Musee d’antiquities. Incredible that we have been to more museums in Europe than I have been in my whole life!

    Totally worn out we headed home for our siesta. Decided to stay local for dinner so we went to the local pizzeria and had an early night ready for the travel day tomorrow to Montpelier.
