A day in Strasbourg

Our initial day in Europe was an amazing one.  Before getting into the meat of our itinerary we got to hang out in Strasbourg and see the sights.

In the morning we toured around the city, got breakfast and soaked in the the centuries old streets and canals of Strasbourg.  The highlight of the morning was the cathedral of Notre-Dame, a masterpiece of Gothic art.



After lunch we went for a tour boat ride around the old city. We saw many amazing sites including Petite-France, the European Parliament and the European Human Rights Courts.

For dinner we went to a restaurant that we had passed earlier on our river tour.  The restaurant was called the Pont St.Martin and it was situated right by the St. Martin bridge in old-city Strasbourg.  They specialized in Tarte-Flambe, which is a flat-bread with toppings and cheese baked in a wood-burning oven. We were told that this was like a pizza, but it was not a pizza.

Tomorrow we are going on a tour of the European Parliament and then travelling to Koblenz in Germany.  It should be another great day.

Bon nuit again and see you all in Germany.
