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:
