Hey guys! After my last exam a couple of weeks ago, I had almost two weeks of well needed vacation. So last Thursday, I made my way to Schiphol and met up with my dad, who had just arrived from Stockholm. Together we took a plane to a new destination for both of us: Bordeux! Here's what our first day there looked like.
After having checked into Hotel de Seze (which I by the way can strongly recomend), we decided to just pick a direction and look for somewhere to grab some lunch.
It had been raining earlier, and would rain for a large portion of the weekend, but our first couple of hours in Bordeaux the sun was shining and sky blue. We took advantage of the weather and just walked around for a bit exploring the city.
When our stomachs finally had enough of waiting, we picked a café that looked nice and ordered a steak tartare each and bottle of wine to share. I mean, we were in Bordeux, after all. We shared a cheesecake for dessert and then hit the streets again.
Unfortunately, we had ran out of luck with the weather, so after running between a couple of shops trying to avoid getting completely soaked, we made our way back to the hotel. We spent a couple hours relaxing in our room and charging our batteries with a power nap. Since we had both been up early we needed some rest. After all, our main purpose of the trip was just to relax and spend time together, eat some good food and try some nice wines. It was so nice not to rush to see all the tourist spots or must sees, but instead just do what we felt like at the moment.
In the evening we had planned to eat at the hotel, but we decided to try out a restaurant close by instead, recomended by our taxi driver. Definitely a great decision. We had some delicious enterecote, before we walked the couple hundred meters back to our hotel and crashed on our beds, completely done for the day and excited for tomorrow's activity: a full day wine tour.
