Not too early a start, caught the 10:50 EasyJet flight to Paris and all went smoothly – apart from realising after checking in that i’d left my iPhone charger plugged in at the hotel! Doh!

Had a couple of hours wait at Paris Charles de Gaulle before catching the TGV train to Bordeaux. We travelled first class as it was only four euros each extra 🙂

Saw the Eiffel Tower from the train!

Arrived Bordeaux around 20:40 and checked into the hotel – the same one I stayed at last time, the Aquitane, so we had no problem finding it – just a five minute walk from the station. A warm and balmy evening here. Lovely. A long day so we all had an early night.
