Route: Drove from Amsterdam to Colmar in Alsace.
When living in Amsterdam in the late summer of 2016, we would do weekend trips to small towns in Belgium and other parts of Netherlands. When searching for new places to go to, Rupa stumbled upon a photograph of a small French town that looked like it was out of a fairytale book. Doing some research led us to read about the Alsace region and all it had to offer. Located in northeastern France and bordered by Germany and Switzerland, Alsace is a region of pine-clad mountains that nestle beautiful villages and adjoining vineyards. It is also an area which has been a pioneer of wine tourism and also has some of the nicest people we have met in France. Read more about our experiences here.
