    Strasbourg, France

    September 18, 2017 in France ⋅

    Bonjour mes amis, vive la France! We are now in Strasbourg, the capital city of the Grand Est region, formerly Alsace, in northeastern France. It sits near the German border, with culture and architecture blending German and French influences. We spent the day wandering through the Old Town which is surrounded by the River ILL on one side and Canal du Faux-Rempart on the other. Beautiful bridges decorated with lots of colourful plants cross back and forth around the Old Town. Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame features an astronomical clock inside and for those who wish to climb its 332 steps partway up the spire (yes we did) it offers sweeping views of Strasbourg.Read more

    And we made it to Strasbourg....
    Our biggest day of cycling yet... with a neat 76kms done and dusted

    Spent the evening in beautiful Strasbourg.
    The cathedral honestly took my breathe away when I first saw it. It's huge! We saw a cool light show that was projected on the side of the building... Nice eveningRead more

    Strasbourg

    September 12, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    It’s probably not on your list of places to visit in Europe, or even France, but it has been an absolute pleasure. We came to visit friends Cassandra and Steve and their family, and discovered why they left their home in Ottawa several years ago and have no plans to return any time soon. I would be happy hiking a mountain or getting lost in a national park somewhere so I was caught off guard by how attractive this city is. 250k pop, sight of European Parliament, European Court of Human Rights, minutes from the German border and the Black Forest. In the Petit France section of town, I loved taking random turns down tiny alleyways and hopping across the many bridges that span the river. The jewel of the city for me is the Parc de l’Orangerie were we picnicked on our last night. We hope to see Cassandra and Steve’s family again upon our return to Europe in Late April.

    Bek- tick & tick!!

    Raced back to the church for the 4.00pm chiming of the astronomical clock! Then climbed the stairs to the top of the church tower! So there are 335 steps up then you need to climb back down again! Just as I was in the bell tower ready to descend the bell chimed- nearly fell down the steps!

    Strasbourg is in France although just over the German border so has a slightly mixed culture & heritage. Beautiful old building on the River & canals as well as the Cathedral with the Astronomical Clock inside. All the bridges have flower growing on the sides- beautiful.

    A Merry Widow moment in Strasbourg

    September 13, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Just a quick addition to our Strasbourg story, especially for Lara’s parents... walking by the Strasbourg Cathedral while the violinist outside plays “Vilja”. I tell Cassandra that I used to listen to that as a child, and she reminds me “who do you think you’re talking to - of course I remember this from your family!” Anyway, here is a little bit - and yes, we compensated the artist...Read more
