This past Summer I was super fortunate to join my sister and her friend Kathleen in Europe for almost three weeks. We packed in a LOT, as you'll soon see, and while I can't/won't complete an entire travel guide (not a travel blogger!) I wanted to share some quick highlights. Carina and Kathleen are so great about travel planning and finding the good stuff, and I know it can be difficult and overwhelming to find great places to eat/drink/explore when you're visiting somewhere new! 

So I'm sharing strictly "what we loved" in every city we visited. Comment below with any questions!

Les Halles de Bacalan modern food hall, we ate seafood at Les Requins Marteaux & it was delicious!
+ Day trip to Dune du Pilatthe highest sand dune in Europe! About an hour outside of Bordeaux.
+ Wandering around the gorgeous "old town" area at night, eating gelato from La Maison du Glacier.
+ Pit-stopped in Saint-Jean-De-Luz driving to San Sebastián, a super cute Basque beach town. Grabbed
a baguette from a local bakery and had a beach picnic for lunch!

+ Saint-Émilion is a medieval village & wine growing region about 45 minutes from Bordeaux.
+ Rented bikes from the town tourism office & did a self-guided wine bike tour! Amazing & sweaty.
+ Went to three family owned & run wine châteaux (wine estates): Gaubert, Guillomet, and Rozier
+ Explored the village (unbeknownst to us, there was a wine festival happening!), stopped at The Cordeliers Cloister - super neat, used to be a nunnery, now it's a wine bar and garden with gift shop.
