Tomorrow Lars and I leave for another trip, so it’s about time I publish the last pictures of our last trip. In Turckheim we also visited the beautiful church of St. Anne: And I converted some pictures to b&w. You can see one of the gates of the remnants of the medieval wall surrounding the town. Afterwards, we actually went…

Stuck in Turckheim

By | 2 Comments

It was our idea to keep on traveling west, through Germany and then have a couple of stops in France. Because of the rain and flooding, we could only stop in Turckheim. Lars and I stayed in a cozy hotel near Turckheim and enjoyed the local gastronomy: What makes Turckheim so charming are the many Renaissance houses, its location near…

Yesterday, I mentioned that at the viewpoint of Bogny-sur-Meuse, there was a special monument. It is actually a statue that refers to the medieval tale called The Four Sons of Aymon. There are different versions, but the basic story is the same. The four sons are the knight Renaud de Montauban, his brothers Guichard, Allard and Richardet and they are…

Late in the afternoon, the weather changed again. More clouds appeared, it got chilly and we felt the first raindrops falling. Lars and I chose one more town before returning home: Bogny-sur-Meuse.

Looking For A Rock

By | 0 Comments

The problem with the map that the tourist information office had kindly given us was that it was not detailed enough. Moreover some of the towns were a lot bigger than we had expected. And our dear GPS device couldn’t find any of the viewpoints on our map! Lars and I had to use our sense of orientation. Anyway, next…

Haybes – La Platale

By | 8 Comments

Our next destination on the Green Track was Haybes. Lars and I wanted to go for a walk in one of the surrounding forests, but unfortunately we saw hunters everywhere. We had to come up with something else. There was supposed to be a viewpoint called La Platale, but it took us some effort to find it, since there were…

A Long Name For A Small Village

By | 10 Comments

At the tourist information office of Vireux, Lars and I got some good news and some bad news. Let’s start with the good news. Apparently, we were in the French Ardennes, an area which is almost unknown to tourists. If you love nature and good food, this is the place to be. The bad news? It was the hunting season,…
