Sorry for the late update. Due to some mechanical problems and the French taking August off for holidays we ended up staying in Bordeaux for a lot longer than originally planned! However, it gave us the chance to really explore the city and outskirts, goto some free music concerts and festivals and make some new friends.
We are now parked up about 45 minutes from Bordeaux in Saulterns, working picking grapes for a Chateaux making sweet wine. There's a lot of different languages spoken at work, which makes it pretty interesting and it's a good mix of people. We are currently parked up with a lot of Spanish also living in vans in a camp on the outskirts of the village. Hopefully we will have work for about a month.
