#2075 – A Weekend Story

ENGLISH

As my Instagram (@azilko) followers have known now, I went on a weekend trip this past weekend!! And this time, I went to Bordeaux in France!

Under some obscure definition, this was not my “first time” to Bordeaux.Β The TGV train I took to go to Lourdes from Paris in October 2012 passed Bordeaux’s Saint Jean Station; and last year I was transitting at Bordeaux – Merignac Airport twice on two Avgeek Weekend Trips. Lol. But of course under the most commonly used definition, those “visits” did not count πŸ˜› .

Considering that Bordeaux was famous for the wine, I figured that I should arrange an actual weekend trip there. And so I did!

Red wine because Bordeaux

As for how to get to Bordeaux, of course I chose to fly (duh!); and of course I booked myself non-direct return flights ticket with interesting routing. Here it was this weekend:

Hahaha πŸ˜† .What even more interesting was that my Air France’s Bordeaux – Lyon flight was operated by HOP! with an … Air Explore’s Boeing 737-800! Yep, a new airline for my logbook thanks to Air France wet-leasing thisΒ plane from Air Explore! πŸ˜€ Oh, and also, I got upgraded to Europe Business Class on KLM’s Lyon – Amsterdam flight πŸ˜€ .

Anyway, Bordeaux turned out to be magnificent!! I actually can’t believe I waited this “long” to go there! Here are some photos from the trip as teasers:

Seperti yang followers Instagram-ku (@azilko) ketahui, aku pergi dalam perjalanan akhir pekan lagi akhir pekan kemarin!! Dan kali ini, aku pergi ke Bordeaux di Prancis!

Berdasarkan definisi aneh dan anti-mainstream, sebenarnya ini bukan lah “kali pertama” aku ke Bordeaux. Kereta TGV yang aku naiki untukΒ pergi ke Lourdes dari Paris di bulan Oktober 2012Β kan lewat Stasiun Saint Jean di Bordeaux; dan tahun lalu aku transit dua kali di Bandara Bordeaux – MerignacΒ dalam dua Avgeek Weekend Trips. Huahaha. Tapi tentu saja berdasarkan definisi yang umumnya digunakan, “kunjungan-kunjungan” itu tidak dihitung lah ya πŸ˜› .

Dengan mempertimbangkan Bordeaux itu terkenal akan minuman anggur (wine)-nya, aku tahu aku harus merancang sebuah perjalanan akhir pekan kesana. Jadilah aku rancang beneran!

Anggur merah karena Bordeaux

Untuk masalah bagaimana pergi ke Bordeaux-nya, jelas lah ya aku maunya naik pesawat (menurut ngana?); dan tentu saja aku membeli tiket pesawat pp yang pakai transit dengan rute yang menarik. Berikut ini rutenya kemarin:

Hahaha πŸ˜† . Yang lebih menarik lagi adalah penerbangan Air France Bordeaux – Lyon-ku dioperasikan oleh HOP! dengan … Boeing 737-800nya Air Explore! Iya, maskapai baru untukΒ logbook-kuΒ berkat Air France yang meng-wet-leaseΒ pesawat ini dari Air Explore! πŸ˜€ Oh iya, aku juga di-upgrade ke kelas bisnis Eropa loh di penerbangan KLM Lyon – Amsterdam.

Anyway, Bordeaux ternyata bagus banget lho!! Aku terheran-heran sendiri mengapa baru sekarang aku pergi kesananya!! Di atas adalah beberapa foto dari perjalanan ini sebagai teasers.
