Yesterday we explored the topic of holidays, tourists visiting the town of Bordeaux in Aquitaine. As promised, I’m posting the translation into English of this conversation. Let me know if you have any questions! 🙂
A We’ve had a very good week
B What did you do?
C We parked the caravane in the Camping du lac; this campsite is very agreeable, it’s reasonable (price wise) and clean
D There is a grocer’s, a restaurant and three lakes.
E How did you visit Bordeaux?
E We took the bus number 73 that dropped us at the trams and then we got off Place des Quinconces. (une place = a square)
F Then we went for a stroll along the quays and a ride on a boat up to Les hangars. The ticket for the bus, the tram and the boat ride costs 4, 60 Euros for the day.
G Was it busy?
H Yes because it’s Bordeaux and therefore there are lots of tourists. Moreover, there was an attraction, a Russian sailing boat that one could visit!
