Last weekend, possibly the final weekend of glorious sunshine for another year, we went to Strasbourg, the final birthday celebration, a city that is fully French, was once German for almost 50 years and is now filled with pretzels, flammenkueche, and all around adorability…
And good cocktails! What? I’m Irish!!!
Seriously, I wanted to eat everywhere! And tried!
On your bike! No cars in the city centre after 11am, Joy!!!
This is an actual school, lycée! It must be for wizards!!
Saint Paul’s Reformed Church, one of the many churches along our boat tour
Flammenkueche, Pizza Alsace style
Petite France area of Strasbourg, Can you imagine this with the Christmas market in full sway!!!!
We had the best sauerkraut with fish here! (Choucroute de la mer). Not from the troff!!!

And a goodbye from the glass modernity of Central Station

Oh my! I had no idea Strasbourg was so beautiful (at least at the end of summer). It’s like a fairy tale village. Thank you for sharing, Damien.
You’re so welcome! I had no idea either! Disneyland in real life!!! 🤗🤗
Perfect place for a birthday break…it looks wonderful Dami and I’d go there in a heartbeat! The pizza looks fascinating like the figs are on giant waterlily leaves, wow!
I floated away on those water lily figs! Goats cheese and lavender to aid the senses!!!
wow! extreme gourmet pizza, that’s really teased my taste buds! 🙂 🙂
You’ve sent me off on another tangent, hope you don’t mind that i’m planning on using this pizza shot in a post tonight!
Got for it, il I am on a detox now because of it!! 🤪😂🤗
Hahaha! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Fabulous photos!! The architecture is stunning! 🙂
It’s such a magical place, it felt like Disneyland without the costumes 😮🤗
I got to travel through your photos! Thank you, Damien!

❤️❤️❤️Dami I cannot even tell you what those images did for my soul! A healthy dose of Travel envy thrown in too. Le Gouber was magnificent! Thank you.
Oh Paula, that makes me so happy, you deserve to always have your soul treated!! 🤗🤗 huge hugs and hope you are doing well. How’s the writing going?
Though I love where I live in France, I see I shall have to find my way to Strasbourg. It is all just too tempting.
I hope you won’t be disappointed, I certainly wasn’t! And I believe the Christmas market is amazing here
Thank you. I’ve yet to be disappointed anywhere I’ve been since moving here. It is more likely to be spring as I have a friend coming to visit.
