I will be in Bordeaux, France this summer and would like to visit cities outside France via rail (Spain seems an obvious choice but I'm open). Any experiences you can share or advice on websites I might visit for research would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Seat62.com it's my go to website for advice

For ticket purchases Loco2.com no mark up and you can pay in sterling or euros (but not $) don't use the SNCF site if you are outside the EU as it will default to a 'local' page and charge you a markup compared to standard pricing

No idea! :) I'm looking for suggestions that involve a scenic or memorable train ride. Thanks.
