travel + culture

on the road and what's out there.

 

out of office : around Bordeaux (for the wine) + one night in Pairs

Caitlin Surakitbanharn

sadly, our fairytale at the Lamy farmhouse had to come to an end.  Etienne drove us into town, we rented a car, and we were off to Bordeaux to the first of our two conferences.  we had originally planned to take the train to Bordeaux, but Etienne's father convinced us that a beautiful drive through central France in a rental car would be more fun....we were in!

our first stop?  a delicious road-side steak and pommel frites stand....


next up, we stopped in Sarlat...a small, very picturesque town in lower central France.  it was beautiful, and we wandered around for just about an hour or two, enjoying some ice cream in the scorching heat.






and finally, off to Bordeaux.  Bordeaux was a fun city, but paled in comparison to our week on Etienne's family's farm.  we did however, enjoy our conference and the complimentary gala evening....at a winery out in the Bordeaux countryside.  wine...wine...wine...

on the way to Bordeaux...

a castle/fortress we encountered on our drive.

ready for the gala evening!  dress, timo weiland.

barrels and barrels of wine...

Louboutins down!  (....i think after a bottle of wine, all Louboutins go down!)


Bordeaux was short and sweet, and we were soon onwards on our way to Krakow, Poland for our next conference.  we had to spend one night in paris (poor us!)...we didn't do much except have a drink at the hotel bar and sleep, but nonetheless...
