There’s something rather cheesy in Bordeaux. Many a nose has found the perfect bottle in this renowned wine region of France. But leave the vineyards, head into the grand city of Bordeaux and follow your nose to Rue Huguerie, in the heart of the city and you’ll also discover the best of French cheese. It’s hard to miss Baud et Millet, despite the fact that it’s a small, one door restaurant in a quiet street. Certainly once you arrive outside you’ll know you will have sniffed out one of Bordeaux’s little gems.
History is a strange thing. For the most part we take it for granted, dropping the Hansel and Gretel seeds of our everyday encounters in a carefree manner. Not stopping to consider that each moment, every minute and second of our present is creating our history. And in thousands of years – likely a lot less – that will become ancient history. It’s only when you visit sights like Athens’ Acropolis and its adjoining Acropolis Museum that you revel in the history people left behind for us to uncover, immerse ourselves in and learn from.
