While I did fly into the Bordeaux airport, and eat a few meals in the city, most of my time was spent farther south in the region around Arcachon Bay.
I was staying with Sebastien and Magali, a French couple I met on the way to a small eco-hostel called Bulungula. The moment they suggested a visit to Bordeaux, I knew I'd be seeing them again. And it didn't hurt that I later found out Magali was working at a pastry shop.
