    Traveling While Black

    I visited Bordeaux with my friend and her family who are all from London. We stayed in a villa for free because it was owned by a family friend. The villa had about 8 rooms, with a guest house and pool. It was a very nice a relaxing vacation. As far as things to do, there weren’t much. Things here are pretty expensive and spread out with local stores closing early or closed for the summer. The French Im the local grocery store were not friendly. They knew English but refused to speak it. They only would speak to you in French. Which was pretty annoying. I did go wine tasting which was pretty fun. I got to experience how they make and preserve their wine.

    I would recommend visiting Bordeaux if you’re into wine and looking for a place to relax.

    Traveling While Black

    The cost of living in France is generally quite expensive, and Bordeaux proved this quite well. The accommodation that I stayed in was very expensive for what it was worth. I stayed in an aparthotel (two beds) for two weeks, which included breakfast. I had to pay a deposit of 144 euros that I was unaware of. Then the overall price was over 300 euros! Make sure that you are aware of hidden costs. However, in my case, I was studying at a summer school and had to book accommodation through the school computer system, so in your case (as a general traveller), I imagine that you won’t find yourself in this type of situation.

    Local food tends to be quite pricey as well. Even McDonalds!! For example, a normal McDonald’s Big Mac meal including a drink and fries was almost £9 (£8.10 or $10.47). I recommend that you plan ahead for where you want to eat, simply because there are lots of restaurants to choose from, and during the evening, the locals eat out a lot. That’s how they enjoy their nightlife especially, thus making harder to find a restaurant that is not overcrowded.

    But as long as you save money and are fully prepared, then the cost of living will not be a shock to you. It is still a great city overall

    Traveling While Black

    Bordeaux is a beautiful town full of history , during the day especially in the spring and summer they have numerous festivals. At night the city comes alive. Bordeaux is a college town so there are a lot of young people. in the center of Bordeaux all the streets have bars and lounges . If you want a more relaxed setting Mama’s shelter is a must they have good cocktails or wine , they also have a pool table in the basement so it’s a great place to start the night . if you want more of a clubbing scene Le Monseigneur plays a variety of music including zouk, afrobeats, and top 40 most night the monseigneur charges about 15 euros for which you are given a drink ticket of the same value the crowd usually ranges between mid-twenties to early thirties . The Theatro is a good club for electronic music they usually have special events with world renown Dj’s so before going i would check if ticket purchase is not required. If you want to stay in the center of bordeaux l’empire is the place to be it has great cocktails. it starts off as a restaurant / lounge and later on as the night goes it picks up a DJ plays music and you can dance the night away the are also numerous bars within walking distance if ever you want a change a scenery. Last but not least le plage is the biggest club in bordeaux , they have 5 rooms with different types of music to satisfy everyone. The crowd at la plage is usually between 18 to early twenties. it’s in a very secluded area and i would not recommend walking there alone at might.
