  • Introducing Bordeaux Métropole's rather lovely local heritage card games 1 day ago Invisible Bordeaux was one of a number of local structures and players who contributed to an innovative project focused on heritage in the area conducted this year by Bordeaux Métropole in conjunction with Deux Degrés, the publishing house and “agence de médiation” who have already...
  • The Gironde estuary hovercraft story and the Pauillac connection 2 weeks ago An interesting post recently published on social media included a 1970s clip of a hovercraft criss-crossing the Gironde estuary between Lamarque and Blaye, on the route that is more naturally associated with its small-scale car ferries. This was news to me, and investigating further also enabled me...
  • Touring the inaugural Bassins de Lumières exhibition 1 month ago Arguably the biggest news on the Bordeaux cultural scene in this other-worldly year has been the rebirth of the city’s submarine base exhibition venue as a permanent digital son-et-lumière installation that embraces cutting-edge video projection mapping techniques. The news of how the eerie...
  • [Musical interlude] Introducing Slowrush and The Parallel World E.P. 2 months ago As you may have noticed if you're a regular reader, the Invisible Bordeaux blog has been a fairly dormant beast lately. But there's a good reason for the relative silence: during the recent lockdown period I worked on an exciting musical project which has resulted in a band being formed and an E.P....

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:
