Finally I have time to blog and get my photos in order :) So our Easter was spent in Strasbourg, France which is pretty close to Stuttgart. We decided to take it slow and easy, so only packed on Friday and arrived at 5pm on the same day.
I wanted to go on a short getaway because my dear hubby has been working so hard. It's hard to be self-employed when one can always work and the dividing line between work and free-life becomes blurred. Hence, in order to get him to stop working (literally), I booked ourselves for a 3days-2-night short break.
Alright, the only drawback about this trip was our less-than-satisfactory hotel. We booked it according to tripadvisor.com and it was sooo bad! It was unjustly rated at #2 out of 90 over hotels in Strasbourg and we felt soooo ripped off! Please don't ever go there, Hotel Du Dragon.
Now, tell me if you see a difference between this Cathedral and the one in Ulm (here). I'm beginning to understand why people say that buildings in Europe look similar after a while.
I like the contrast between old architectural buildings and the modern tram
In front of some beautiful building next to the river.
This is in Le Petite, France (Miniature France). Our hotel was pretty close to this area. That day we were there, it rain and the sun came out like 4 times in one day! That's April's weather for you here.
Finally one couple shot! But of course it had to blur! Still, its better than nothing!
Do you notice some famous icon on the bottom right? Clue: His name starts with a "C". He's real btw.
One of the rare moments when the sun was shining. This building was on the left of the pix just above it.
Left: French Bakery. I so missed my fruit tarts, Mille Feuille! Sadly enough, when we wanted to buy some back to Germany, most of the bakeries were closed and the only ones opened didn't sell them anymore! Paris here I come!
Random shots of buildings that took to my liking.
Extreme right: Don't you think that reminds you of the restaurant "Ratatouille"??? Except that you have a picture of a mouse instead of 2 cooks?
Pretzels and Sauerkraut! This is how you know you're not far from Germany!
What do you do in France except kissing? I love the angle of this photo! Ok, this is a bad angle for me, but isn't it great that I managed to capture the German-looking buildings in Le Petite, France.
