The morning started with a thunder and a sharp shower. Kibble got so scared that he managed to squeeze himself into the quarter of the wardrobe where Monika's clothes are! The weather cleared by the time we left the campsite and within another half an hour it was again sunny and warm reaching 30 degrees by mid-afternoon. We followed the Wine Route further north stopping at a few villages to have a look around. One of them was Eguisheim, boasting the title of one of the most beautiful villages in France. Its medieval centre is built in 3 concentric circles. Another town was Turckheim where we happened to be at the right time of the year: there was a wine festival this weekend. The inner city was full of people in different regional costumes and some with musical instruments. The streets were lined with people waiting for the procession to begin but we did not know what time it was supposed to start and with time getting on and the weather getting hotter we had to leave to find a campsite. We reached one in Selestat where we walked into the town for a short visit and a dinner at a restaurant that was recommended by the campsite warden.

Rano zacalo bourkou a silnym destem. Kibble se tak vylekal, ze se mu podarilo vmacknout se do te ctvrtiny skrine, kterou Monika pouziva pro svoje obleceni! Pocasi se vylepsilo, nez jsme opustili kemp a behem asi dalsi pulhodiny uz zase bylo slunecno a horko a do odpoledne bylo zase 30 stupnu. Pokracovali jsme po Vinne Ceste dale na sever a zastavili jsme se v nekolika vesnicich. Jednou z nich byl Eguisheim, ktera se honosi titulem jedne z nejkrasnejsich vesnic ve Francii. Jeji stredoveke centrum je postaveno ve 3 soustrednych kruzich. Dalsim mestem bylo Turckheim, kde jsme nahodou byli ve spravnou rocni dobu: konal se tu tento vikend vinny festival. Uvnitr mesta bylo spousta lidi v ruznych mistnich krojich a nekteri meli hudebni nastroje. Ulice byly lemovany lidmi, kteri cekali na zacatek pruvodu, ale my jsme nevedeli, kdy to zacne a protoze uz bylo dost hodin a bylo dost horko, museli jsme odjet a najit kemp. Dojeli jsme do jednoho v Selestat, kde jsme se sli projit do mesta na kratkou navstevu a na veceri do restaurace, kterou nam doporucil hlidac kempu.
