Strasbourg for the Summer

I'VE JUST RETURNED from a quick overnight trip to Strasbourg (2 hours from Paris by train) where I met the family who own the house we will be staying in this summer. (This post from last year sort of explains why we go somewhere each summer). But in a nutshell: because of our current rental agreement we have to be out of our house each July and August so that the owners can use it. It's not a bad deal, really -- a bit hectic for sure, but not terrible. And since we are in France for a limited time we want to take full advantage of every moment -- so we go somewhere new each summer. And we can only do this because I'm in education (see, there are 1 or 2 advantages). This summer: Strasbourg!

Since we spent last summer in the Southwest part of France, we wanted to try something new this year so we choose Strasbourg -- or perhaps Strasbourg chose us since that's where we found a nice place to live. We were hoping for more of a city 'type' of atmosphere since we miss that in our current village. It doesn't hurt that Strasbourg is sort of the French gateway to Europe: on the German border, an hour from Switzerland, 2 hours from Luxumbourg, and only about 5 hours from Prague. We hope to do some exploring.

Ooh jealous! I've always wanted to go to Strasbourg. I love how it's half French/half German. One of these days I'll get there!

How fun! I want to go there too. Apparently some of my grandmother's family originates from there. Have an excellent summer :-)

I spent a summer in Strasbourg when I was in college. I did some hiking across the border in the Black Forest. Gorgeous! I hope you enjoy your time there.

FUN!!! I went there Christmas of 05... So beautiful. Take the boat tour, it's awesome to see everything from the water. I love how you can see the German influence in the architecture.

You like the Chargers because they are having a great season, prolific offense, strong defense and they are racking up wins. Since the San Diego offense has been clicking, you also think that a lot of points will be scored during this game. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
