As we ended our stay in Paris, we prepared for our early morning train ride to Bordeaux, France. We took the TGV, or high-speed train.  We were all amazed at how quickly we traveled from Paris to Bordeaux.  In three short hours, we had left northern France to the southwestern area of France.  As we traveled, we were able to see lots of quaint, little villages as well as pretty green meadows.   After our train ride, we tackled the rain and loaded our bus.  We headed to the Dune du Pilat, a gigantic sand dune that looks out onto the Atlantic Ocean.   It is the largest sand dune in Europe.  When we arrived, the rain slowed down a bit, but it was not going to stop us from reaching the top.  We climbed to the very top of the dune and were able to have a unique view of the French Atlantic coast.   

After our climb and a change of shoes, we headed towards Biarritz, France.  This is known as the Basque region in France.  For many of us, Biarritz was the most beautiful city that we had ever seen.  The buildings were made to look like cottages scattered with windows and intricate iron railings.  Since it was raining, we took a few short stops to take pictures of the French coast.  We were all in awe of the beauty surrounding us.   As the day ended, we had a traditional Basque dinner at Mourisko’s restaurant and headed to our hotel.  The Basque region is quite different than northern France.  We were all excited to explore the French port cities of St Jean de Luz and Biarritz as well as San Sebastián, Spain.
