Strasbourg to Clerval… And I said Oui!

France has continued to be amazing in all ways – the people are lovely and quite forgiving of my horrific attempts to speak French; the food is amazing and the scenery is what we dreamed of and then some. I don’t want to ever leave!

From Strasbourg, we continued south through Alsace toward Colmar. It’s incredible wine country and the bike path took us up and down hills through acres and acres of vineyards and small towns with vin (wine) every where. Shame on us for not doing better research and planning to spend more time in this area.

Steep. Hill.


Chugging away in Alsace. Not wine.


Fresh, cool water


Une petite ville


And the trip just got sweeter…  At the crest of one vineyard hill Adam pulled off to the side, pulled me off my bike and asked me to marry him. 

I said Oui!

Thanks to the French family who passed by and took our picture!

We have been ‘in it to win it’ (as I like to say) for a while and this confirms that and kicks off the next chapter of our lives together. Weee! 

From that exciting pit stop, we’ve covered some ground. Colmar to Belfort (via train), Belfort to Clerval. We are in direction of the Rhone River Valley. Nearly 200 miles under our belt so far!

Pas du noix = Happy Adam


Until next time!

    Congratulations Adam and Aimee! We are so excited for you!

    I hope you enjoyed Strasbourg – I visited there when I was last in Germany, and it was the best combination of French and German food. Try a Flammkuchenbaguette from a food cart for me if you get the chance!
