    Canal du Rhône au Rhin

    September 6, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Today the juniors took the train option and the seniors (me included) jumped on our bikes and followed one of the many tow paths along a canal parallel to the river. Flat, asphalt, & sunny but cool- today was ideal riding conditions

    April 19 in France ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Colmar è una città che sembra uscita dalle pagine di un libro di favole, case a graticcio color pastello si affacciano su strade acciottolate e su canali, tanto che un piccolo quartiere è chiamato la piccola Venezia. Le nostre papille gustative si godono un tripudio di sapori assaggiando i meravigliosi dolci della pasticceria Gilg davvero imperdibile. Visitiamo il museo d'Unterlinden. Chiudiamo la giornata a Eguisheim pittoresco villaggio con case risalenti al XVII secoloRead more

    In Colmar bei Sophie ❤️

    March 1 in France ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Endlich war es so weit, und meine erste Überraschungsaktion stand bevor. Meine Schwester, die seit einigen Monaten in Frankreich studiert, hat nicht damit gerechnet, dass ich auf einmal um 7 Uhr morgens in ihrem Zimmer stehen würde.
    Zusammen haben wir eine sehr schöne Woche in der Colmar verbracht.
    Ich kann es kaum erwarten sie im Sommer wieder zu sehen❤️ 🌺

    Colmar, France

    December 30, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    On our drive back to Luxembourg we stopped in the French town that inspired Beauty and the Beast. It's a breathtaking old town on a river surrounded by colorful houses. We enjoyed walking the cobbled streets still adorned with Christmas cheer and visiting a beautiful marketplace where we sampled toasted baguette sandwiches and chocolate eclairs; how French are we?! Next stop Luxembourg for New Years!Read more

    18. Etappe Rheinau 130 km

    April 18 in France ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    In dem Neuenburger Hof hatte ich ein super Zimmer und sehr gut geschlafen. Das Frühstück war herrlich, mit richtigen Brötchen und allem drum und dran. Bin gemütlich um 8:45 Uhr los gefahren. Ich konnte selber nicht glauben, dass ich freiwillig wieder auf die französische Seite zurück geradelt bin. Aber dort konnte ich 60 km lang an dem Rhein-Rhone-Kanal lang fahren, ohne ein einziges Auto zu sehen. Dort kam man auch gut vorwärts. Hatte allerdings kaum Motivation und mein Hintern tat weh. Das Wetter war wieder toll, ich konnte ab mittags in kurz fahren. Dass ab Mittag wieder Gegenwind war, wie schon gestern, ist fast selbstredend. In der Abendsonne eine schöne lange Pause am Rhein in Kehl gemacht. Da kam dann das Schiff vorbei, dass ich morgens schon beim Start übern Rhein flussabwärts fahrend gesehen habe. Zum Schluss bin ich noch 25 km weiter geradelt in ein gemütliches Landhotel, wo außer mir nur noch ein anderer Radler abgestiegen ist. Mit ihm, Gregor, nett bei 2 Weizen unterhalten.Read more

    Day 449: North to Colmar

    May 9, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Left Lyon after breakfast and drove northwards for about 4 hours. Our stop today was the final part of the Fortifications of Vauban listing we were going to see - an octagonal fortress town just near the German border. This area is Alsace, a province that's been handed back and forth between France and Germany 5 times in the last 150 years.

    The town was interesting though very quiet, and we spent about an hour or so walking along the 18th century walls that still surround the town. It was the last fortress built by Vauban so essentially his most idealised vision.

    From here we drove via the supermarket to the town of Colmar and our B&B for the next few days. It's a little granny flat type place on a battleaxe block; very home-made feel to it but quite nice at the same time.

    Quite hot so debated jumping in their pool but eventually settled for working instead - joy!

    Day 451: Shandos's Birthday

    May 11, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Shandos's birthday today! I gave her a card and cooked her breakfast in bed, scrambled eggs and toast. Not especially salubrious but when you're in each other's company 24/7 and in a different place every few days there's not a lot else you can do!

    For her birthday she wanted to explore the town of Colmar, so that's what we did! It's a pretty little town with lots of narrow streets, winding canals and colourful half-timbered houses. Found a nice little restaurant and had a three-course lunch that Shandos's parents had offered to pay for. Fairly typical local food apparently, we had a set menu of tuna wrap on salad, a large piece of grilled pork, then a nougat ice-cream thing for dessert - very tasty.

    Afterwards we headed out of town to nearby Riquewihr, another pretty little town. This didn't have a canal but it did have plenty of half-timbered houses and lots of nearby vineyards too! And an awful lot of tourists as well, sadly, but it was still quite nice. Home around 6pm where we crashed pretty quickly, only time for a quick dinner of spatzl, a type of egg noodle common to this area.
