We planned to catch the 9:45 local train this morning to take us across the border into France. We walked the short distance to the train station and caught the train with no problem.
In Hendaye France we changed to the French TGV train which took us to Bordeaux. Tomorrow there will be a train strike in France. I’m not sure why, but somehow that contributed to our train being an hour late arriving in Bordeaux. Before we had even arrived at our hotel Duke had received an email saying we could apply for a partial refund because our train was late.
When we arrived in Bordeaux it was raining quite hard. We took a taxi to the hotel.
After a bit of a rest we went out for a walk. But it was still raining so we found a cafe and ordered mulled wine.
We had dinner at a wonderful little restaurant near our hotel, Les Drôles.
When we walked back to the hotel the rain had stopped and the streets were sparkling.
