I’m so excited to finally share with you pictures of my trip to France! Doug headed over to Paris for work earlier in September, and I decided to take some time off to visit. When I landed in Paris, Doug picked me up in an Uber car and whisked us off to the Gare de l’Est so we could catch our train to Strasbourg. I’ve always loved the Rhineland black and white timber buildings and couldn’t wait to see them in person. And they certainly didn’t disappoint!
On my first day in Strasbourg it was already late in the afternoon so we just started to wander around the city. Much of the city is just like any other bustling city, except when you start to enter the Petite-France area. This is where you find all the beautiful buildings, the gorgeous window boxes full of red geraniums, German influenced restaurants and shops, and of course, the Rhine River.
We ate dinner at a local restaurant by the river, La Corde à Linge. I wanted to try some local wine and eat traditional Alsacienne food, including the egg noodle dumplings called Spätzle. Best part of our day, according to Doug, was on our walk back to the hotel where we stumbled upon a little alleyway full of tents for the European Fantasy Film Festival of Strasbourg! French comic books and movie posters were for being sold by people dressed up as characters from the Game of Thrones. While he ogled over the French comic books, I bought some cool Alice in Wonderland themed jewelry that you’ll see later this week!
