[edit] Location

In Bruges, a small town adjacent to Bordeaux. Maybe in a street, maybe in someone's garden.

[edit] Plans

I will use public bikes and walk a little. I will do a (very little) detour via the center of Bordeaux, in order to take another bike (it's free for the first 30 minutes, so I have to change once). While I am on foot, I'll take some pictures (Place de la Comédie ; Monument aux Girondins ; and Jardin Public). Then, I'll go straight to the Bruges city hall, to give back the bike, and walk to the hash.

I do not have a GPS. These things are pretty expensive :( As it's in a city, I will rely on a good old sheet of paper with directions written on it. I will probably take a picture of the (google) map before the expedition.

[edit] Expedition

Hey ! It was fun ! I followed my plans, and it was pretty easy. I think it took me 1h45mn to reach the hash and to come back (1h by bike, 45 mn by foot). Today was a sunny day, so I was able to "travel" in good conditions. Look at the photos ! PS: I just realised that I haven't checked the date/time parameters of my camera. Eveything is wrong. I reached the hash at around 4 pm (GMT+1)
