Day 3 & 4 – Bordeaux to Pau

Eddy and the Bordeaux Eddy and the Bordeaux Having picked up a rental car, we travelled out to the Atlantic coast, which was packed with French holiday makers. Tried some of the local produce and relaxed on the beach for a couple of hours.  Over the two days we made our way down the coast and then inland across the foothills of the Pyrenees to Pau.

We were now only a day behind the tour and the signs of the tour were evident around the city. Pau is a beautiful place.

 


When we checked in at the hotel, it turns out that Astana, Katusha and Euskatel had been using the hotel the night before.  Cool… now I really feel like we are really at the Tour de France!!!
