Strasbourg, France - 15th October 2011
I made my first bigger trip, how exciting. Mum, her daughter, some other TV's and I spent a weekend in Strasbourg. We went by train and arrived after two hours and changing trains twice. Strasbourg has a very modern central train station:
At the hotel we TV's studied the guide book to decide where to go.
We walked along one of the canals which turn the city centre practically into an island.
Some of the beautiful old houses were built directly at the water.
Many of those houses are decorated with flowers and plants like this restaurant.
We crossed the bridge which led to Petite France, the most beautiful part of the city centre.
The cathedral is absolutely amazing. They started to built it in 1179 and only finished it in 1439. It's so big that we didn't manage to take a complete picture of it.
The Maison Kammerzelll was built in the 16th century and is one of the most beautiful houses in Strasbourg. There's a restaurant inside it.
On Sunday we took a walk along one of the canals again and I would have really like to swim but finally decided to stay with the others.
We saw this building at Place de la République but I don't remember anymore what it was.
We also saw a memorial for the soldiers who died in Southeast Asia and North Africa during World War II there.
On the way back to the city centre the sun was shining and we admired the many bridges.
We also walked along the river Ill and saw some boats there, it looked very idyllic.
Last not least we climbed the cathedral from where we had a spectacular view over the city. Well, I didn't climb the 329 stair steps actually, nuriayasmin carried me :-)
At the hotel we took a last group photo and also wanted to show off our souvenirs. Nuriayasmin had bought a couple of postcards and an oven mitt and her daughter had fallen in love with a beautiful stork who is looking forward to living in Germany but doesn't want to become a TV.
I can't wait to find my first host pretty soon now.
