We went to Strasbourg last Sunday, we were a bit disappointed for not being able to go to a French countryside to volunteer at a local farm so why not just get away for a day to the nearest city in France.. (from where we live)
We cooked quiche and vegetarian burger the night before, made green smoothie in the morning and took the train to a pretty little French town at the borderline called Wissembourg. The sun was unfortunately still a little bit shy so it was a bit cloudy there, but we managed to get around the city on foot whilst waiting for our train to Strasbourg. It has a small river, La Lauter, and cute little alleys with cute little houses.
We continued to Strasbourg one-and-a-half-hour later and so glad that we had big luck with the weather. It was spring-day warm, the sun was shining, the people were so friendly.. after asking for a city map we decided to explore the city on foot. We found the cathedral which resembles the Kölner Dom (the Cologne cathedral) a lot and met some nice Malaysian girls who were kindly willing to take pictures of us haha
After some ice cream and waffle break and a successful french convo buying an Easter chocolate bunny at the patisserie, we took a walk along the river (not sure what it's called, but I think it's the Rhine?)
And of course we didn't look at the time. So when we realized we only had 9 minutes to hop on the train back to Germany, we didn't know where we were actually. Fortunately, there was this really nice Frenchman who explained to us the way to the train station despite our limited ability to understand what he was trying to say in French. And that's not all. We almost took the wrong train 2 minutes before our actual train left. My fault. Obviously. But we made it!
We also brought Lisa a baguette and a postcard.
It was not a bad weekend after all and I can't wait for some more adventures!
