“Bonjour! Paw-lez vous Anglais?” My French is starting to get better after my second trip to France! Kind of hard to hide my dog accent though. I guess I’ll have to work on that.
Our Labor Day weekends have always consisted of going to my favorite place, THE BEACH! But now that we are no longer in Jersey, we had to improvise somehow. We’ve heard so many wonderful things about Strasbourg so we knew we had to take a trip there.
After an easy two hour
nap drive, we arrived! We quickly settled into our hotel room and headed back out for some fun. I’ve become quite the natural with public transportation so we hopped on the tram into town. The weather was very chilly so I was very happy mom packed my sweater. (Sweater is from here)
Is this one ours?
I’m guessing not!
I loved the big windows! Looking out whenever I’m going anywhere is my favorite. We finally arrived at the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg. It was super duper big. I’d say half a million weenies high! Did you notice that there was only one tower? Apparently, there was not enough foundation underneath the church to build a second tower. Another fun fact? Legend has it that underneath the church there is an underground lake where an empty boat would roam. The noise of the oars could still be heard though. Spooooooky!
After hanging around for a little, we headed off to check out the European Parliament and the Parc de’lOrangerie. I heard there was a zoo in there so I was very curious to meet some friends! After walking through town and avoiding a shower, we hopped on a tram and were on our way!
My artistic “contemplating life” pose.
That doesn’t look like any cat I’ve ever seen before!
Clearly hesitant to see what those things are!
Mesmerized by these things!
These don’t look like the birds I see!
Alsace Storks! They had the BIGGEST nests ever!
Why are you only standing on one foot?
After a long day of walking around, we were pooped and was ready to call it a night. We grabbed a quick dinner and hit the sack!
“I WANNA GO TO BED!”
The next day we had planned on spending half the day exploring by the water in La Petite France before heading back to Germany. When you look up Strasbourg, you see all these beautiful picturesque shots by the water. I’ll tell you what, seeing it in person did NOT disappoint!
I met a friend! She played hard to get…
The Queen of Strasbourg!
After exploring a little, we hopped on a tram and headed towards the covered bridges. I was super happy because the sun finally came out and it started to warm up! I am NOT a fan of the cold!
We made our way to the top of the bridge for some really pretty views! Since the weather was finally nice, we spent quite some time just hanging out and soaking up the sun.
My pal Sam and his humans came to Strasbourg too so of course we had to snap a pic together. Should’ve utilized his nice long arms to take a selfie.. Must remember that for next time! The weather started to cool back down again which was my cue to go. I was also pretty pooped out from all the walking so I was ready for my car nap. We trotted all the way back to the car and were off to Germany.
Strasbourg, I WILL be back. Paw-revoir les amis! And as always, thanks for tuning into my adventures!
