On the schedule the following weekend was Strasbourg, France. Typical American - I had never even heard of this city until I arrived here. I loved it. The scenery was beautiful, and it is only about a 2 hour drive from Stuttgart, where I am based. Well... it should have only been a 2 hour drive, but we got completely lost. Did you know there is also a Strasbourg in Germany? Neither did we. Our GPS apparently knew though, and directed us there. #roadtripfail.
When we finally arrived in Strasbourg, we were all starving. The first stop was to a local cafe for "Tarte Flambee", a special food from this region of France. Since Stuttgart is so close to Eastern France, they serve this in many German restaurants as well, and it's called "flammekueche." It resembles a thin-crust pizza, but the dough is really, really thin. Almost like a cross between a pizza and a tortilla.
After lunch it was of course time for sightseeing. The top tourist attraction in Strasbourg is the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Beautiful.
Au revoir for now friends, more adventures to come!
