We are halfway through our trip and spending a week in Obernai, Alsace, a delightful German-style French town on the Route des Vins between Strasbourg and Colmar. We have had a wonderful tour of Germany and I will report on it too now that we have paused to take a break and once I get my photos downloaded and sorted.! Our daughter Louise who lives in London will join us here for a few days which will be lovely.
Weather:mild spring, Food fabulous: cheeses, cheeses, cheeses and terrines, asparagus, vins régionaux, gateaux, berries, .... Weight gain is almost balanced by the walking we have been doing! Yesterday we did a 2 hour hike between 2 ruined chateaux-forts and we do enjoy wandering the villages just to see the historic or the picturesque views. We are also museum addicts and have enjoyed some interesting ones in smaller towns in Germany, as well as the wonderful ones in Berlin. Add in a castle or 'centre ville ancien', or ' zentrum altstadt' and we are happy tourists.
