We spent a wonderful week discovering all of Prague from the historical center to the grocery stores and villages located in outskirts. We are staying one week with my Inlaws in Strasbourg before returning home to Switzerland.
Saturday, we fought the crowds in the Grande Braderie de Strasbourg to exchange some of our Swiss francs into Euros. We were surprised that one of the employees still recognized us after over a year of not seeing us. She was always super nice with me even when I couldn’t speak French at all. Strasbourg is still our home in many ways even if we now live in Switzerland. For me, Strasbourg will always be home away from home.
The Grande Braderie de Strasbourg (Grand flea market of Strasbourg) which is held the last Saturday of July each year.
The Cathedral of Strasbourg. Oh how I missed this sight! We didn’t get a chance to go inside the Cathedral but we will at least once before we return home. I always light a candle for our family at the Cathedral when we visit.
This small grouping of houses in Place Kléber has always been a favorite of mine since the first time I visited Stasbourg before Vilay and I were married over seven years ago.

Vilay waited to get an autographed photo of Laëtitia Milot alias Mélanie Ritano to taunt his female co-workers who are addicted to Plus belle la vie. Plus belle la vie is a series that is shown on France 3. He got two cards autographed since I was able to grab a second as a man was handing them out while Vilay stood in the crowd holding out his card as the others are shown above.
In the photo above you can get an idea of how many people were pressed forward with waving cards to get a glimpse of their favorite star.
When we return to Switzerland I will post about Prague. I need to spend more time preparing the posts than I am able to here in Strasbourg.
Strasbourg is easy for me to post about since it was my home for over three years. I was lucky to have lived here and each time I see Strasbourg I am reminded of how much I miss it. We have walked every street of Strasbourg and visited more villages and cities in Alsace than I can list. I know Alsace as well as I know the Dayton area back home in Ohio.
I love Alsace. But, who doesn’t?
