Why we love Bordeaux - It took me three trips to fall in love with Bordeaux. I was too busy the first two times to appreciate the region. On the third trip I was able to take a breath and thought "wow, this is a beautiful place". With a direct train just two hours each way, Bordeaux is a perfect addition to a Paris vacation. - John
