A Weekend Guide- Strasbourg, France

I can't  believe Christmas and New Years have already come and gone. The holidays allowed me some quiet time to reflect on our last trip to Strasbourg, France. I had gone once before for a day and loved it, so decided to stay for the weekend this time.

We were blessed with nothing but sunshine and blue skies and managed to beat the Christmas market crowds. And we had the chance to celebrate my favorite holiday there-Thanksgiving! But let's be honest... celebrating an American holiday abroad is incomparable (it is SO hard to find a Thanksgiving turkey in Europe!), buuuuut we made the best of it. Aside from the task of finding a last-minute turkey, I was in no mood to even learn how to cook a turkey on my own, lol! So we decided to treat ourselves to a fancy dinner out. We made ourselves a res at La Hache and went out for a round of bowling (a bit tipsy on the wine from dinner :p) afterwards.

The highlight of the trip was, of course, the Christmas Market (Marché de Noël de Strasbourg). In fact, it's one of the oldest in Europe!
