Bordeaux: Part 2

Bonjour!!

Here are the rest of the photos that I took while in Bordeaux.

My last day was a nice relaxed one. I washed all my clothes, spent some time looking for places to stay in Nice and I skyped my family. Around 1.30 I left the house. I went to the train station first to pick up my ticket to Toulouse. Then I went into the centre and walked around for a bit until I found a place to have lunch. I bought a mango smoothie, it was the best smoothie ever!

Then I did went into a few more clothes stores…tried on some clothes but didn’t buy anything. I decided to have a little peek into Sephora. I liked this one a whole lot better than the one in Paris…the Paris one was so crowded with people you could barely move!! So I may have gone on a little spending spree and bought a few things! 😀

After Sephora I found a chocolatier place and bought macrons and white chocolate which, sadly, are already all gone 🙁 I am definitely going to be buying some in Paris to take back to Australia 🙂

On the walk back to my house there was a crazy man on the street. He was there in the morning too…he wanders the streets around the house screaming! I kept thinking it was an animal but realised that it was him!! Thankfully there was a guy walking in front of me and the crazy man decided to follow him instead of me…the poor guy being followed! He kept looking over his shoulder.  I got back to my house around 6ish. I started packing up my stuff and tidying up my room in preparation for leaving early the next morning.

Walking down a side street of Bordeaux, I looked up and I saw these jeans hanging out the window. What a fabulous idea! use your old jeans as pot plants haha. I really want to do this one day.

And so ends my stay in Bordeaux. The three days sure did go extremely fast! It’s been a relaxing time. I have been going to bed relatively early and not spending as many hours walking around…my body is thanking me :)….although it is hating me again because I may have just eaten that whole block of white chocolate while typing up two blog posts :/

So a small change to my travel plans. Instead of going to Marseille after Toulouse I am instead going to take the train to Nice!! Carmen (the Austrian girl I met in Paris) and her best friend Mario are heading to Nice this week and she messaged me last night to see if I want to join them! Since I didn’t get to go to the beach in Bordeaux and as I really like these guys I immediately said yes 😀 Three days in Nice…I’m looking forward to this!

I booked my train ticket to Toulouse today. I leave at 8.47AM and arrive in Toulouse at 10.50AM. I stay Tuesday and Wednesday night then taking the train to Nice on Thursday morning.

Where I’m staying isn’t as nice as the Paris apartment. It’s modern inside and the outside is all overgrown. There is no old charm about it. But the host is lovely 🙂

Well bye for now!!

Next post will be from Toulouse!…I’m trying to book in a horse riding tour but if I can’t then I’ll hire a bike and go bike riding instead haha. I came to France for the country side and I haven’t seen it yet! I’ve been in the city too much. Time for some country 🙂

Au revoir! xx

      Haha I wanted to buy the shoes but they were quite expensive. I have seen a couple Cash Converters, they just don’t fit in haha. Toulouse is beautiful! But really hot! It was 32 degrees today!!
