After a walk around the area near Basilique Saint-Sernin de Toulouse in the morning I was looking to find somewhere I could grab a drink and regroup. As I walked I came across a little cafe that was open called Tchin so in I went.
After Bordeaux I jumped on the train for the two hour and eleven minute train ride through the French countryside to Toulouse.
I checked into my hotel mid afternoon and then decided to head out for some drinks and a feed. However, being a Saturday, I found my options around the hotel to be rather limited but I found a place that was open so headed out for a beer at a place called La Mécanique des Fluides.
For my stay in Bordeaux I’d chosen to stay at Hotel ibis Bordeaux Centre Gare Saint Jean. One of half a dozen ibis’ in Bordeaux and around a 10 minute walk from Gare Saint Jean and the trams that will take you into central Bordeaux (it’s only 5 or 7 minutes on the tram).
