Basque Lands, Bordeaux & Paris 2024

It was time for a real vacation trip. But after the long hitatus due to the pandemic, I felt a needed something simple as a warmup. For this reason, I decided to go somewhere I had been before.

The first Saturday in April, I got myself on a flight to Paris-Charles de Gaulle and continued directly on a train to Bordeaux where I stayed for two nights. Monday morning, I took the train to Biarritz and picked up a rental car. I drove to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (Donibane Garazi in Basque), which I also visitied in 2000 and 2010. With Donibane Garazi as my base I made excusions with my rental car, mainly to do day walks and enjoy the magnificent Basque landscape. After a week, I continued to Pamplona and stayed the night before turning back to Biarritz to return the car and stay for a day. I closed my trip by walking around aimlessly in Paris for a day and half.

I have divided the pictures into four groups. The pictures below are from a fast track of the third group.To follow the fast track, keep click in the Fast Fwd button to the right. Be warned! The Basque landscape is really immensely beautiful and you may find yourself looking at all pictures.

  1. Bordeaux (15 pictures.)
  2. Basque Towns (31 pictures.)
  3. Basque Landscape Panoramas (138 pictures whereof 38 in the fast track.)
  4. Paris (35 pictures.)
