After Paris (my mom blogged about that), we drove to Alsace, France. The town we stayed in was called Hilsenheim. The first thing we did was eat supper. At supper we had delicious foods. I have pictures. Alsatian food is different from in Canada. Everything is so juicy. All the food is better here.
The house that we stayed in was all made of wood. One of the people who lived there named Yves made the house. His wife Marie made breakfast for us everyday and she made me hot milk! The funny thing is that one day they made breakfast for another person staying there and it was all meat like ham and salami but then they found out that he was a vegetarian! I am not a vegetarian so I loved the breakfast including the nutella every day! On our first day at that house, we played in the pool the whole day! My mom did laundry and my dad worked on his computer.
The next day we drove through wine country and stopped at a Christmas store in Riqueswhier on our way to a place called Titisee where there is a ropes course and a lake.
At the ropes course, my mother was freaking out… and I was too because it was so hard and so stressful! We couldn’t even do all the levels – even my dad because it was so hard! It was really fun though and we spent 4 hours there! After the ropes course, we went to a lake and we rented a paddle boat there. The paddle boat had a slide built right into it! We had a lot of fun on it. The water was just in the middle of hot and cold.
There are A LOT of castles in Germany that were mostly built in the 1300’s! We went to a castle called Haut Koenigsburg near the wood house. It was built very high up on a mountain so that they could see where the enemies were. We saw lots of cannons there too.
Alsace is a great place to visit. If you ever get a chance to go, you should visit here!
