One of my favourite things to do in the world is to relax and savour a lovely glass of red wine. I get a comforting and warming feeling from red wine that I simply don’t get from white wine or champagne. Those drinks are more for celebrations in the sun and fun don’t you think?
So visiting Bordeaux last week was a kind of pilgrimage for me. Bordeaux is the centre of the French region so well-known for its beautiful red wines and in particular my favourite variety Cabernet Sauvignon. I loved exploring this wine focused French city with its interesting mix of old and new architecture.
My Faraway Files post this week is about the incredible new wine museum in Bordeaux that explores every aspect of wine using creative technology and cultural references.
I read many of the posts from last week’s Faraway Files over a satisfying glass of Bordeaux’s finest. Here are some of my favourites:
Fiji is a tropical paradise and one that is perfect for diving. I relived my own wreck dive off the coast of Nadi reading Juliette from Snow and Snorkel’s post about diving the Raiyawa off Tivua Island.
Traveling always has its ups and downs but a positive attitude makes all the difference. Wander Mum Elizabeth’s post on exploring Gothenburg had me chuckling and nodding along. Looks like a wonderful place to visit too.
Lastly, Jen’s post on the textures of Costa Barcelona resonated with me. I am always looking for those unique details on my travels and I loved seeing the place through her eye for the unusual and special.
