A Day Trip to France

Before the wedding we wanted to do some site-seeing with our American friends and family sooooo... we took a quick trip to France.

If you come to visit me a fun place to go visit is Wissemburg, France. It's about 1,5 hours south-west from where I live....a little French town just over the border. It is so cute, old and rustic and no worries....they'll be speaking French.

The trip there was exciting already.....the closer we came to France the older and quainter the houses & towns were....the way a tourist imagines  Europe.

So finally there we were, happy to see that parking was free,....not in Germany.... you have to pay to go to the bathroom.

It was a relaxed but fun day looking at churches and houses built in the 1800s.  In the afternoon we took a little trolly around the town. As you passed different houses and buildings they would tell you when it was built and what the history is. We all enjoyed it!

We ended the day in France with dinner.....Flammkuchen. It's really really good. When I was asked what it is I really could not explain it because saying it's like pizza just isn't right.... It's flammkuchen.

Have you had flammkuchen before?

A Trip Along the Necker // Travel

I'm playing "Catch-Up"..... Sooooooo much happened this summer and I DO want to keep it all documented here on the blog. Let me begin:

After I came back from the States I had about 3 weeks until friends and family from the States were coming to Germany for the wedding. Of course we wanted to show them some things and especially Patrick's friend and bestman stayed extra long to make his trip "worth while".

Our first trip was along the river here in Heidelberg. It was a very sunny day....and lets just say I got some color for my wedding the following week....hahahaha....thankfully it turned a nice brown after the red.

The boat ride was fun and relaxing and the hike to the castles was entertaining....espcially with these two guys. lol We even shot a short video which the bestman isn't willing to share with the world... We had a great time though.

If you are ever in Heidelberg.....I recommend doing the Four Castle boats ride along the Necker.

Bridal Shower

I had a great time at my bridal party Friday night. Many of the ladies came out to celebrate with me. We had a short devotional with words of advice to keep my marriage together.....afterwards we enjoyed some fellowship with fun games and food.

I especially loved how the decoration turned out....Do you?
