French Wine, Roman Stone

bord20

Last spring I went the Gallo-Roman city of Bordeaux to visit a good friend of mine who had the opportunity to teach in France. I spent this lovely weekend away drinking French wine, seeing some truly incredible sculpture and having a lovely break.

Not only did this city have stunning Roman remains, including this amphitheatre, but also beautiful churches.

Bordeaux has so many of these knockers, and they are a particular favourite of Elizabeth’s.
