    Nu har vi kommit till vinets huvudstad Bordeaux. Slut med öl och pintxos, nu är det vin och goda ostar som gäller! Vi bor nära floden La Garonne som ser ut som lersörja. Det är ebb och flod och ständigt strömt åt något håll, som drar upp bottenleran till ytan, så det blir en lervälling av alltihop.

    Vi kom hit igår eftermiddag, tog en promenad utefter floden in till stan och Place de La Bourse, med den speciella vattenspegeln framför. Mycket effektfullt och populärt för barn och vuxna att svalka fötterna i.
    Det finns mängder av gamla vackra hus från 1700-talet och äldre. Bordeaux är den stad i världen som fått störst del av stadskärnan förklarad som UNESCO:s världsarv.

    Day 1 in Bordeaux, France

    October 12, 2019 in France ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    So I am in Bordeaux France for the weekend. It is very hot (30 degrees celcius). I think i'm going to make a habit of visiting southern France every October now.

    I started my trip by exploring an urban area called Darwin Ecosystème. They had a market there where I bought an eco friendly bamboo toothbrush. Then I took a bus into the city centre to explore the main shopping street. It was overcrowded which is why I generally hate going to main shopping streets in European cities.

    After this I went to the Le Bar à Vin. Its a popular wine bar in the city centre. The prices are really good and you can get wine for €2 or €3 per glass. I tried all 3 wine flavours...and underestimated the strength of French wine.

    So I had to try and sober up by eating food. It's a good thing that I am in France because I got to eat my beloved moules frites (mussels and chips). I have noticed that food and drinks in Bordeaux is actually reasonably priced.

    Anyway...after eating I went back to my hostel and finally checked in. Nobody was in the room so I could comfortably get ready for bed. The bed was not the most comfortable but hostel is cool so ot doesnt matter. They have a bar, they serve food, the kitchen is huge, and the atmosphere is really pleasant. So i'm can't complain about a lumpy bed that costs £25 per night.
