On the day before the trip, we all met up in Hamburg (my friend from school, Freddy, doesn't live here of course). The day after, we drove from Hamburg to Strasbourg. We'd been caught up in a few traffic jams for a total of three hours and there's a lot of road works on the way down south. When we arrived, we were happy to walk around town for an hour before getting dinner. The pictures taken that day can be seen in my previous blog post. We stayed in a hostel ("auberge de jeunesse") on the edge of town.
After we had breakfast, we soon found ourselves back on the road again. We followed the Route des Vins d'Alsace. For more information, visit this website. Our favourite villages were Barr and Colmar. We loved the colourful houses. At the end of the day, we arrived in Besançon, where we stayed for the night.
