Bordeaux, September 2015

I really only had one full day here in Bordeaux, with a late plane arrival last night and an early train departure tomorrow, but really enjoyed spending the day wandering the city with no particular agenda in mind nor even a map in hand. It’s a remarkable city, with so many preserved buildings, very old Cathedrals and churches, a pronounced Mediterranean feel, and an incredibly vibrant mixture of cultures. Although my visit was brief, no day that beings with an almond croissant and Turkish coffee and ends with a lovely sunset over a beautiful city can have been poorly spent.
