Bordeaux- Wine, champagne, and crepes

It seems as if every time I blink were on another train. And each time I find myself looking out the window with my headphones in, watching the scenery fly by, it feels surreal, like I’m watching a transitional scene in a movie. You know the part that draws you in, cause you’re not sure what will happen next. For the first time my life has a soundtrack, and I want to buy the whole album.

So far on this trip we have been switching off between major cities and small towns. It has served as a nice little break, and a small dose of home each time. In Bordeaux we were able to stay with my friend Chris, who I had only met through friends a few short months ago during his trip to America. He welcomed Jessica and I with open arms and was such a gracious host. He treated us to champagne, homemade crepes, and made us dinner every night. He even drove us up to the heart of the wine country so we could taste and get the real Bordeaux experience. What I appreciated the most was his eagerness to just give back because of the wonderful experience he was blessed with when he was in LA. A pay it forward mindset that sparked a fire in Jess and I as well. It’s contagious when people are so giving. It makes you want to be able to do the same for someone else. What it has given me is a more grateful heart, and a new perspective.

The language barrier was a little tough throughout France. We managed to somehow get by with our basic 3 word vocabulary of “Merci” “Au revoir” and “S’il vous plaît” but we would have been really out of luck if we hadn’t had Chris as our translator in Bordeaux. Excited to head to Spain next and try to put my weak high school version of Spanish to use!

See you in España! Adios!
