48 hours after leaving Brisbane, I finally reached Bordeaux! Big effort, but it has gone smoothly. The only upset was the experience between Dubai and Paris. Drunk snoring man on my left and chronic farter on the right. I laughed to myself that it would be good practice for Camino sleeping. Loved the train trip from Paris to Bordeaux. So green, fields full of brilliant yellow rapeseed flowers, and beautiful rustic stone cottages everywhere with blue shutters on the windows. Can picture myself living in one of those. I love the French countryside!
