I can't decide if Strasbourg feels more like Germany or more like France. It's definitely a mixture of both. The half-timbered houses feel very Germanic, the choucroute is essentially German sauerkraut in French disguise.... but the melt-in-your-mouth pain chocolat (which I ate every single morning without hesitation) are indisputably French.
Strasbourg is a beautiful city, but the Alsatian countryside is even more picturesque.
We drove out along La Route des Vins through tiny medieval villages, each one more charming than the last.
It felt so good to be out in the French countryside.
We had a delicious picnic in the middle of nowhere with fresh baguette and cheeses... this is my favourite part of travelling.
We ended our stay in the Alsace region in the adorable town of Colmar.
Next up... Burgundy and then Paris : )
