Two for the mystery tour- assume it's on Friday. Also, which Ibis?... the start of the mystery....


Sorry. Ibis Meriadeck. A good few seem to be staying there (or in it's poor relation next door). 1730 on Friday. Assuming the flight goes smoothly, we should be OK to make that.
Then some of the other UBB Angels crowd want to meet us for drinks in the Connemara at 8.

If someone is looking for a ticket, I got one too many - in section 40b.
Ping me and I'll deliver it to The Connemara Friday evening! :)

It seems from the airport there is a fancy bus that costs €8 or a city bus that costs €1.70 and runs more often (plus you can change to the tram at Merignac for no extra cost if you want). There is a ten journey ticket for €13.20, which might be worth it as the stadium is on the tram line also.
Never been though, so if anyone has better advice ...

Be careful as it nearly scuppered us heading out of Perpignan back to Barcelona airport on the Saturday! Mind you, it was much bigger back in December. It's pretty much over as a protest now however and also affects roads more than tram/train as they tend to take over the roundabouts. If you're on public transport and not driving you should be ok.

....bind, bind!

Their ground is a handy walk from city centre where most are staying so its best to walk there. Met a friend in the Connemara who is from Bordeaux so he said we can walk out on Sat. Everything here based around a few streets so it wont bother us once ye get in from the airport

The ground is on the tramline Route A (use that as your guide on walk out), otherwise iirc it's a good 15-20min walk from downtown. Been 11 years since I've been there, but suspect the old stadium hasn't moved. ;)

Hopefully it provides better memories than O'Sullivan's RWC 2007 near disaater against Georgia.. Bordeaux is a huge city,, but unless you're there for a longer break you'll only cover a fraction of it...
