After two weeks and a few days we were in Frankfurt ready to come home. And we were ready. Unlike other vacations where we aren’t ready to come home, we were ready. We loved our trip and had a great time, but after 18 nights you start to miss your own bed. And you, well at least us, start to miss your own coffee!
We spent several days driving around and touring the small towns and villages that make up the Alsace and the Alsace’s Route de Vin. As with Colmar, these are filled with half-timbered buildings, shops, charm, and restaurants and cafes. One of the first villages we visited was Eguisheim.
Visiting Colmar was the reason we started planning this trip. I had been to the Alsace area and stayed in the Colmar area a few times as kid when we lived in England. Sometimes when my dad had to travel to Colmar we’d all come along.
Our first trip once we reached eastern France’s Alsace region was out of the region to Verdun. My husband loves history, which means we found ourselves setting off on a three hour drive to Verdun from our French home base of Strasbourg.
The European adventure begins! We were off on our longest trip ever – and one we planned for over a year!
As I sorted through vacation photos to make a photo book I realized how much food and drinks are a central part of our travels and life.
After finishing up our day at Disneyland Paris we were bound for the Charles de Gaulle airport area. Since we had an early morning flight the next day and knowing we had to be at the airport early we opted to stay at the airport the night before we left.
