Trip in Alsace and Czech Republic

Christmas Markets, French pastries, homemade chips...

Happy New Year guys!

And remember:

New Year = new ideas


I usually travel during winter time when our coffee place is closed, and my favorite destinations are Alsace in France and the beautiful town of Cesky Krumlov in Czech Republic.

These places are beautiful and great for food inspiration too…

I’ve been visiting Alsace many times since I was a child, because my mother is from Strasbourg. I always loved the atmosphere in Alsace, especially during Christmas. It is simply amazing, and for me, that’s the number 1 place in the world to visit during Christmas period.

One of my favorite activities when I’m there is to drive through the Vosges, which are a range of low mountains in Alsace, and visit small wine and cheese producers and then I discover a few christmas markets in Alsace villages.

Each town in Alsace looks like it could be straight out of a fairytale, and I’m always amazed by the architecture and the Christmas decorations.

The second place I love to spend time is Cesky Krumlov.

In 2015 I was browsing places to visit in Europe, and I found the beautiful town of Cesky Krumlov. Cesky Krumlov is a stunningly beautiful town in southern Bohemia, and the second most visited tourist attraction in Czech Republic after Prague. The historic center of the town was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1992.

So I decided to visit that town and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s absolutely superb, with a beautiful old architecture.

Since then I’ve been visiting that little town every winter. And I love browsing markets there, finding beautiful old objects in cast iron, and tasting great food.
