It has become so easy to travel around Europe from Bordeaux. The TGV super fast train gets us to Paris in just two hours. From there we have trained to many other places in France, plus Belgium. Our Bordeaux airport has proven to be wonderful, with trips to Madrid, Milan, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Frankfurt and Cologne, Marseille, Aix en Provence, Strassburg, Porto and Lisbon. Plus several trips back to CA from Paris. Air Tahiti, Air Lingus, Air France, all non stop flights. This allowed us to schedule in Dublin on a return flight for a few extra days. Overall, choosing Bordeaux as home, has proven to be really a good decision. No particular reasoning behind the sequence of the photos, just some of the places we have traveled. Obviously, you will see that Jan is my favorite subject.
So getting to San Sebastian from Bordeaux is about a 2,5hour train ride to the border, but there one changes to a different train in that the tracks are different.
The train to Belgium is on a High Speed Train that runs between countries. There is no border stops for passports as both countries are part of the EU. Out trip was specifically to see Brugges. Brussels was having some sort of major activity so on this trip we changed trains in Brussels and arrived an hour later. Total travel time from Paris about 3.5 hours. Our hotel was fantastic. At the time the only 5 Star hotel in the country.
