I spent a month in Bordeaux, France this year and while I was working as a digital nomad I also had plenty of time to live the city as a tourist. As a result of my long-term stay, I have what I think are top tips for an unforgettable Bordeaux experience.

The second night I was in Bordeaux I accidentally met a tour guide by walking up and knocking on the door of his house, thinking it was the home of a woman I had met the night before. With dramatic flare he very kindly directed me to where I had to go. Two days later I saw him giving a tour of the Grand Theatre. Then I saw him on the right bank giving a tour. It happened three more times. The last time, he was on his own so I caught his attention and we had a talk. “The city is like a village,” he said.

So true. Bordeaux is a major city in France and home to some of the best wine in the world, but it also has a small city feel with many community events happening all the time.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
