We usually decide our travel destinations based on whatever cheap tickets we can get from Ryanair. So, here we go, this time to… Bordeaux, city of wine for our second dating anniversary and short summer trip.
We left our house in the afternoon and reached Edinburgh airport after about one and half hour journey of train and bus. The airport was rather crowded as expected for summer.
We arrived at Bordeaux airport at 10pm (an hour ahead UK time) and luckily the sky wasn’t completely dark yet. We paid a little extra for the taxi to save an hour by bus and walking. Plus, Ryanair, probably the cheapest European budget
airline tends to fly to and fro airports in outskirts at odd times!!
Our hotel is located out of the city centre, but! we managed to get it 50% normal rate. (After the discount, the price was about the same as getting a hostel room in city centre). So, we
figured it was worth the tram and 10 minutes walk to the city center to get a nice and clean room in a four star hotel.
