What I loved about Strasbourg

Strasbourg is seriously under-rated. Sure, people have heard of it, especially because the European Parliament is in Strasbourg. But, when it comes to France, I hear a lot of Americans talking about Paris, maybe even Nice, Provence, or Lyon even, but I don’t hear them talking too much about Strasbourg…but they should be. This place is awesome.

Things I loved in Paris

But seriously…Paris is amazing. If you’ve never been, you’ll be dazzled by the iconic sights like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Arc De Triomphe. But…there’s something about Paris. It’s the kind of place I could return to again and again and not only ever get bored, but also the kind of place I can return again and again (and again) and find something new and exciting each and every time.

Even if you’re just staying in Paris, it would be feasible to take the train for the day over to Reims to do this tour, so definitely look into it next time you’re in the area. This was one of the highlights of my entire trip!

Things you should know about driving in France

Still, there are a few things I found helpful to know ahead of time, and a few things I learned along the way, so I wanted to write up this post for all of you who might be heading to France and hitting the open road. So, without further adieu, here are the things you should know if you’re planning on driving in France…
