  • New video: ten unusual sights in Bordeaux 1 week ago As loyal readers know, Invisible Bordeaux has always been about getting beyond the classic postcard-friendly sights of the city to uncover some of the more unusual places and stories across Bordeaux. I thought there might be a video concept in there somewhere, so here it is: the Invisible Bordeaux...
  • Learning about la Gironde from the 'Almanach du Facteur' 2 weeks ago One of the things they don’t tell you about living in France is that when December comes round, the doorbell regularly rings and you come face-to-face with a waste collector, someone from the emergency services or the person who delivers your snail mail. You then hand over a few euros in exchange...
  • Inside one of the detention basins that protect Bordeaux from flooding 1 month ago Other than the occasional instance of the Garonne river breaking its banks and spilling over onto the quayside promenades, Bordeaux is not subject to flooding these days. But it has not always been that way. The flat, low-lying city is encircled and crisscrossed by a rich network of streams which...
  • A fresh set of Bordeaux ghost signs! 1 month ago Ever since it launched in 2011, one of the recurring themes on the Invisible Bordeaux has been so-called ghost signs, those old handpainted names, messages or advertisements that have faded over time, but are still clinging in there, silently embellishing walls and façades.Bordeaux appears to...
  • The city of Bordeaux's relationship status with former mayor Adrien Marquet: it's complicated 2 months ago Prominent politician Adrien Marquet was mayor of Bordeaux from 1925 to 1944.

Dear Tim, I came across your blog very recently. I like your writing style and I got very interested about it. I wonder if you have written any blog about the best neighbourhoods to live in. I would like to see something beyond the TripAdvisor sort of opinions. I am sure you can grasp the character of each region in and around the city in a way that few can. Moreover, the eyes of a local/foreigner will give me the right perspective. I have a special interest in this subject because it is very likely that I will move with my wife to Bordeaux to take over a professorial position. I have lived before in Versailles, France, for few years (as well as in Brazil, US, Canada, Spain, and Canada again). So, France is not very strange to me although the French language is a far acquaintance to me. I would value tremendously any information on this subject.

Leave some love for this blog:
