Alsace region

After 5 days in Paris we adventured on to the Alsace region of France. Here we met up with our foreign exchange student (Jean) and his family. We had a WONDERFUL time with. They took us all around the countryside, made dinner for us, took us wine tasting at an authentic french winery, and took us to an auberge on top of a giant mountain. 

The architechture here was incredible --it looked like Disneyland or something--but it was all real and people actually lived in these towns {blew my mind}. One of my favorites was Colmar, which had a place called Little Venice. We got to ride on a little gondola down the river to view the town.

I totally totally recommend visiting this area of France--totally beautiful and worth it all the way!

Next stop: Provence region!
