Thought I lost Theo in Bordeaux yesterday. Not physically, but mentally. To put it simply, Theo LOVES the old town of Bordeaux. And I thought he was ready to abandon plans on Lalinde, and instead, buy an apartment in the city. He thinks it’s even more beautiful than San Francisco.
And it IS a lovely city. No doubt. By the end of our visit, we agreed that we are SUPER lucky to live so close to this major metropolitan city and can VISIT it whenever we want. We promised each other a multi-day stay once we’re settled in the new house (and are able to find a dog-sitter!!!)
It was a short visit, but thanks to our friends visiting from Germany (who stayed home to watch the dogs), we had a great little outing. Bordeaux is an hour and 45 minute drive from the house. The trains are undergoing some renovations this month, but once they get going again and our French improves, we’ll definitely take the train next time and catch the modern tram around the city center.
