Visiting Kaysersberg and Colmar, France

In Colmar I would...

The Old Medieval Town of Riquewihr, France

The Old Medieval Town of Riquewihr, France

Next up in Alsace, France, we drove to Riquewihr—which is noted as one of the most beautiful villages in France (we agree).

A day trip to Wissembourg, France

A day trip to Wissembourg, France

My husband’s Aunt and Uncle live in Germany, near the border of France. Luckily for us, this meant we could stay with them as a base as we traveled Europe, and they treated us to their company on some great day trips, as well!  This particular day they invited us on a day trip with them to Wissembourg, France, which is located on the Northeast corner of France. Here we are, leaving Germany… …and...
