After our last night in Barcelona, the five travellers went their separate ways; Kate to Bilbao, Kath and Liv to Paris, and Leon and Charlie headed to Bordeaux (having already done Paris).
Kath and Liv had a whirlwind three days in Paris, arriving very early in the morning after a uncomfortable sleep on the overnight train. First stop was the eiffle tower to beat the touristy queues.
They then continued on to spend the day walking around Paris seeing the rest of the sights (including running into steve martin filming the sequel to the pink panther film).
On Day two they headed out to versailles to bask in the luxury of french royalty with mary antoinette
Charlie and Leon headed to wine country - Bordeaux only to find it freezing cold and pissing down with rain.
The city was quite beautifull however and the next day they got down to business and went on a winery tour of the area sneaking quite a few extra tasting glasses as they went.
While they were in the area, they also decided to take a look at La Rochelle, a beach town not far from Bordeaux where it was also pissing down with rain, but they managed to escape it by heading to the cities many medieval towers with tiny tiny spiral stairs (the most fascinating you will ever see according to our friendly guide).
After 3 days of being apart, they could stand it no longer and each made their way back to the five and met up in San Sebastian in Basque Country.
