Good Old Friend in Bayonne

The original plan was to visit Iris in Bordeaux and stay there for a week. However, I remembered that a good old friend back from high school lives in Bayonne, a two and half hours via train from Bordeaux. So I contacted her and asked if Iris and I could visit her and explore their place even for just a day. Guess what, she agreed! They even cancelled their appointments on the day we visited just to accommodate us and planned to bring us to San Sebastian, Spain! San Sebastian, Spain? How ’bout dat! I didn’t even know where it is. More on San Sebastian on the next blog. 😉

We arrived in Bayonne early in the morning and met Genelyn at the train station. Her husband, Harvey, had to finish his work for the next 2 hours before we drive to San Sebastian. So, we had two hours to explore the city which is more than enough since the Bayonne is not that big compared to Paris.

Together with us is their cute little Shaun, who was trying to steal Iris from me. 😀 But we’re cool, Shaun. We’re cool. 😛

We went to the busy streets of the city which were most of the shops are located. By the way, there were a lot of items that were on sale but naah… nobody got time for that… and money. 😀

We went inside Cathédrale Sainte-Marie de Bayonne and checked its Gothic architecture. We then headed to their market located along the Nive river where all local produce are sold.

We didn’t stay long and went back home to prepare before going to San Sebastian. Even though it was just a quick visit, we were grateful for an extraordinary day. To Harvey, Genelyn and Shaun, thank you very much. More thanks on the next blog. 😀
