Saturday we traveled to the Alsace region of France along the Route des Vins (wine route) to meet up with Deb and Guenther in the 16th century walled city of Riquewihr. Over the weekend, we visited several of the local villages, including Ribeauville and Kayserberg, in addition to the old town of Colmar with its canals and centuries-old buildings. We also made it a point to sample as much of the local Alsacian cuisine as we could in the few days we had ...

A lovely town centre though we cannot locate where we watched the storks maybe 10 years ago - mostly because the storks are on holiday in central Africa. Can't say I blame 'em.

It's that kind of terrain.
It has to be said - it beats being 20 miles east of Paris for that was as far as we had reached until this morning. Not that there's anything ...
Had a relaxing morning. Went out the local hypermarket, E.Leclerc, to get flowers for Sonia and Marie. When we returned Marie had prepared another amazing meal. Salad, red cabbage and two different types of sausage. Delicious. Around 16:00, Serge (Alice and Karen's cousin) showed up. We followed him to his home in Leimbach. He lived just outside of town in a lovely house with a beautiful view of ...
