Hello from Bordeaux! Happy to say we are both having a great time. The weather has gone from great to not so good as the days progress. We had rain off and on for one day, but apart from that, it has been thankfully dry.
A postcard from beautiful Bordeaux France:
This has involved a lot of eating, and some fair share of wine tasting. We will share the details with you upon our return. I have to say that Bordeaux is definitely a city l could live it were it not for the fact that it is expensive, quite a bit higher than Valencia.
This was a much needed break, especially for Federico. As you might recall, his mother had been sick. She, unfortunately lost her battle with cancer relatively quickly. Everything was sort of blur and just over two months from diagnosis to end, but at least she is at peace.
As much as we love Valencia weather (which has been almost a carbon copy), it’s nice to be bundled up and actually wear our winter coats. We have spent the time exploring as much of the city as we can.
You know we had to check the grocery store prices as well, and yep! more expensive. It sort of makes sense why there are a lot of French people in Valencia. My Spanish class, of which we are only seven, there are three French people.
The city of Bordeaux is absolutely beautiful and much bigger than l expected. Since they are known for their wine production, we have been doing some wine tasting☺️. A hard job l know, but someone has to do it.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone back home a Happy Thanksgiving. We hope your day is filled with good food, much love and great memories. It is always important to be thankful for the things we have in life and to remember that others are not so fortunate.
Since Thanksgiving is not celebrated in France, we indulged in some Turkish food for lunch. It was excellent. We definitely miss our friends, family, and the big feast, but thanks to technology, it hasn’t been too bad.
I hope you have enjoyed this quick update with this postcard from beautiful Bordeaux. Stay safe, and thanks again for hanging out with us on this blog.
How are you celebrating the day?
