    Day 58 - Basel to Strasbourg, 87 miles

    June 12, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Not surprisingly didn't feel brilliant when I woke up so big breakfast and number of strong coffees where needed! Left the hostel with no real plan apart from to head north on the French side of the Rhine and see how I go.

    After getting the first hour out the way in light drizzle I felt ok and with a nice breeze from behind and a completely flat ride I started to eat into the miles. With nothing to really see along the route apart from the odd village I thought I'd press on to see if I could reach Strasbourg. All was going well until the 73rd mile and first puncture of the trip. Can't really complain after nearly 2000 miles!

    Quick change of inner tube and Strasbourg was reached after one more downpour. Strasbourg no d city but not a huge amount going on. I've heard the Rhine route gets more interesting the further north you go. Fingers crossed as after the mountains of Switzerland in the sun the flat of the Rhine in the rain could get pretty boring pretty quick.

    La torre reunion 2

    September 21, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    After two days in Tübingen, it was time for a change of scenery, so we went to my home town. However, we literally only spent the nights there. Instead, we took a day trip to Strasburg in the Alsace, France, which is only about 1,5 hours away.
    The traffic in town was terrible, but after finally finding a parking spot, we met my study friend Pauline and afterwards went for Flammkuchen (a French kind of really thin pizza with sour cream instead of tomato sauce).
    The rest of the day we passed walking around the cute little streets (and back to the car in order to pay another 2h parking period in turns). Towards the evening, we went to see a contemporaneous circus on the town square. Though they had a pretty interesting show, it was also quite weird. And our lesson of the day was: even though you speak a different language than everyone else, don't speak behind the backs of other people: they might still understand you :D

    Los gehts ...

    June 17, 2019 in France ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    BARCELONA 😍 Man sagt .. Kaum eine andere europäische Stadt hat wohl so einen tollen Mix aus Sightseeing, kulinarischen Highlights, Shopping, Strand und Erholung zu bieten, wie Barcelona. Außerdem herrscht in der Stadt immer ein ganz besonderes Flair..

    Voller Vorfreude sitzen wir drei Hühner (Lena, Larissa und ich) nun im Oui-Bus unterwegs nach Barcelona.. also richtiger gesagt erstmal nach Paris.. um dann mit dem Zug nach Barcelona zu reisen..

    Der Bus füllt sich langsam - eines steht fest es wird Multi-Kulti 🙈😅

    Straßburg

    September 3, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Straßburg hatten wir gefühlt das letzte Mal vor über 15 Jahren mit dem Auto besucht. Mit dem Tandem war insbesondere die Fahrt über die Brücke "Passerelle des Deux Rives" mit den Parks auf beiden Rheinseiten ein Erlebnis. Die Parks werden auch "Garten der zwei Ufer" genannt. Die Brücke wurde 2004 gebaut als Zeichen für das zusammen wachsende Europa.

    Die Stadt selber haben wir fast nicht mehr wieder erkannt. Als Fahrradfahrer war sie uns auch etwas zu hektisch. Dafür haben wir in einem sehr schönen großen Apartment übernachtet. Und am nächsten Morgen konnten wir noch einmal die Fahrt über die schöne Brücke genießen.

    Strasbourg is located close to the border to Germany and it is the seat of the European Parliament. The historic city center is classified a World Heritage site. So pretty!

    Strasbourg

    May 26, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Það var hátt í 30° C hiti þegar ég kom til Strasbourg um hádegisleitið og þegar þetta er skrifað, í Speyer í Þýskalandi kl. 19:30, eru 27° C, þannig að þið getið ímyndað ykkur hvað það var gaman að vera úti í þessu. Ég bíð eftir að það komi þrumuveður og kæli loftið.

    Ég labbaði inn á Place de la Cathédrale, sem er einn af miðpunktum gamla bæjarins, horfði á langa, fjórfalda röðina sem hlykkjaðist inn um einar dyr á dómkirkjunni og út um aðrar og hugsaði með mér "nei, ég þrái ekki af nógu mikilli örvæntingu að sjá inn í kirkjuna til að standa í þessu".

    Svo settist ég inn á veitingahús og pantaði mér Tarte Flambée Traditionelle, sem er nokkurs konar pizza, bara með sýrðum rjóma í stað tómatsósu, og áleggið er laukur og skinka. Bara frekar gott. Labbaði svo niður í bíl í gegnum Petite France-hverfið og lagði af stað til Þýskalands.

    Strasbourg getur beðið betri tíma. T.d. væri ég alveg til í vetrarheimsókn þangað þegar hitastigið er þolanlegt og mannþröngin ekki eins mikil.
