Colmar is in the Alsace region of France which is known for their wine and cheese production. We are all staying at a charming bed and breakfast built in 1603 that is owned and run by a family that produces fabulous white wines.
Following our arrival into the town yesterday evening, we went out for dinner, chatted, and walked around the city. I seriously feel as if I am in Disneyworld! The homes are built of large wooden beams and most are at least a few centuries old and lean in one direction or other.
Today was filled with hiking. We all had breakfast in the morning at the B&B and shortly after left for a hike in the Vosges mountain area. The views were spectacular and so was the weather and the ambiance. I felt so peaceful and connected with the earth. After hiking for a couple of hours, we stopped at a cafe in the middle of the valley that is famous for their Munster cheese (cheese I detest). I enjoyed an omlette while others in the group devoured the cheese and we left again for our climb back up to the apex of the mountain. I love this part of France; it is clean and simple… that’s how I like things in life to be.
Life doesn’t get any better than this.
