Today Stefan wanted to show us a French town right over the border, about an hour from here. In French it's called Wissembourg and in Germany they say Weissenburg. It was a pretty drive, past many vineyards. This area of Germany is famous for it's wine. The state we are in is Rhineland-Pfalz.
We arrived in France and the town is so charming, romantic, amazing, quaint! Wunderbar! (That was from Stefan who agrees I need more vocabulary to describe things around here!) I will try to narrow down my pictures, but it's going to be very hard!
|Our first glimpse of the town :)|
|In front of a bakery where we got some croissants. Of course.|
|Brad eating a croissant in France. Awesome.|
|Lea photobombed the pic of me buying French soaps|
|In the city square|
|The little market|
|The salt house was first a hospital, in 1448. 1448 People! OMG!!!|
|A very interesting roof|
|Beautiful and old beyond comprehension!|
|Inside was very ornate.|
|Lighting a candle for Megan <3|
|The bricks were made of sandstone. Very colorful and beautiful.|
I really wanted to stay and live in this town.

|Salt house. Again. I can't get enough.|
We found this little garden, I don't know what it was for, but it was open to the public.
I was totally in awe of the charm of this little town. And while we were there, it was so quiet! Not many people out, peaceful. Such an amazing day so far! And to think, it wasn't even over yet.
Stay tuned for part 2.
