  • Day1


    May 4, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Wake up late -> take a nap -> go out for a beer and walk around

    Trying to get in the new mindset of having no schedule and no obligations, but it’s not that easy! We are formatted to be busy and productive. We’ll need a few more beers to get there :)

    Ruhetag 1 in Bordeaux

    October 6, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

    Da muss ich erst nach Frankreich runter düsen, damit Franzi sich mal ein bissl Ruhe gönnt 😉
    Die Wiedersehensfreude ist natürlich sehr sehr groß!
    Nach einem leckeren Abendbrot gestern hieß es heut erst einmal ausschlafen und entspannt frühstücken. Trotz Ruhetag wird trotzdem nicht gefaulenzt 💪🏼
    Nach dem petit dejeuner machten wir uns auf zum Stadtrundgang durch Bordeaux. Viele schöne Ecken gibt es hier zu sehen. Und auch die Einflüsse von St. Jacques begleiten uns auf unserem Rundgang

    Bordeaux: Cité du Vin

    June 12, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F

    We had to visit the Cité du Vin (City of Wine), the International Wine Museum. We enjoyed tasting some wines from around the world. We were given a chip card, which we inserted into the slot, then we picked which wine we wanted to taste and it was dispensed automatically. At the end the chip card is totaled up. Each of our tastes was about 1€50 (about $1.75). There were more expensive ones, of course. So many choices, but Dean still had to drive, so we limited ourselves.Read more

    Bordeaux 2

    August 18, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Nach dem Frühstück - durchaus ok- haben wir zunächst die nähere Umgebung unseres Hotels erkundet und uns das Stadion der UefaEuro2016 angeschaut.
    Dann sind wir in die Stadt aufgebrochen und haben einen ausgedehnten Bummel gemacht.
    Wie ihr auf den beiden letzten Fotos sehen könnt, kam Bernd nicht mehr aus dem Staunen heraus. Im letzten Bild seht ihr, dass er sich mit seinem nächsten Fahrzeug weiter verkleinern möchte.
    Am Nachmittag haben wir dann unsere Mitradler kennengelernt. Gepäck und Räder sind zztl. angekommen. Morgen beginnt die eigentliche Tour bei strahlendem Sonnenschein.

    Le Cite de Vin

    February 16, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Cool this morning so I headed to the wine museum. It was huge and took me 4.5 hours to get through it. Lots of information and lots of hands on stuff. I finished off with my tasting on the 8th floor overlooking the city. They actually were actually pouring a 2014 Note Bene from Black hills winery and last week a 2013 Syrah from Painted Rock. I told the ladies I was from that region and they were full of questions and I was happy to talk about the okanagan wines. They even had a flyover of the okanagan featured in their film. It's a huge facility. They had absolutely no ice wines from Canada. Heading off to La Rochelle tomorrow. Booked myself into a hotel with my hotels bonus points and am using my one free night. After I check out tomorrow I will have another free night that u will use later. Yippee! Huge luxury bed!Read more

    June 12, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 61 °F

    Our host's daughter could speak some English, and she helped us figure out the Park and Ride system for the Tram into Bordeaux. (It wasn't easy!) Bordeaux is an old French city on the Garrone river, with lots of 18th to 19th century mansions, a palace, a grand theater, and cathedrals of course. Renovations are ongoing, but they have a long way to go.

    This is Place du la Bourse, the most famous picture-spot in the city with its Mirror d’Eau reflecting the grand palace, and the Three Graces Fountain in front. There are nice views of the river and its bridges too.

    Day 48

    July 17, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    Bus day today, crossing the border from Spain into France again into Bordeaux

    Only a short trip got in at 1 and we couldn't get in the hostel until 4 so we walked around and ticked off all the major sights in the afternoon

    Then had a 3 course meal for dinner which was cheap only €17.60 Prawns, Steak and chips, then a delicious chocolate cake and custard and almonds and it was great!!

    My feet are full of blisters and are absolutely killing me so tomorrow will be a day of rest. Supposed to get to 38 degrees and the hostel has no aircon but a day of chilling out is needed. The fatigue is definitely catching up now but these next couple of stops before Paris will be very chilled out😊

    Monuments in Bordeaux

    June 12, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 63 °F

    This is a monument to the French Revolutionaries. It was good to see it has been cleaned and is nice and white again. The cathedral is also being cleaned up. The tower was built separately, to reduce the instability of the cathedral. And we saw a nice historic city gate with a grand facade.
