Labastide d’Armagnac to Bordeaux

I uploaded my third video of the trip. You can see it here. I may not always link to new videos so you may want to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can more easily hear about new videos.

Our drive from Labastide to Bordeaux was relatively easy. But driving onto the center of a city is always a challenge. We are staying at a hotel in a great location right in the city center. The hotel had told us that we needed to book a parking spot at a parking garage in advance. We booked and paid yesterday so that when we found the entrance to the underground parking garage we just needed to show our QR code to get in. From there it was about a ten minute walk to the hotel.

In Bordeaux walking to the hotel.

After checking in we went for a walk. Bordeaux is beautiful.

We stopped for a break at a sidewalk cafe.

Afternoon wine.

I have said this before but our dinner was perhaps the best of the trip. Coincidentally we are at Bistro Reno!

We had dinner at Bistro Réno
Salmon gravlax with quinoa to start
Octopus and potatoes for the main dish
A Madeleine with fresh figs, berries and raspberry sorbet for desert.
