We headed out from our flat at about 10:15 a.m. to get to London Bridge train station where we caught the 10:42 First Capital Connect train to Gatwick. The train arrived in about half an hour to the south terminal. We caught the shuttle to the north terminal where our flight was departing. After checking Scott’s bag and getting through security, we had plenty of time for lunch and returned to the same restaurant we went to in December last year, Cafe Rouge.
I had a terrible glass of wine there and hoped not to have any similar experience in Bordeaux. Scott said his Croque Monsieur was horrid.
Arriving in Bordeaux, after an hour and ahalf flight, it was immediately apparent that the city plays up the wine industry. This is the baggage claim area of the airport.
