Strasbourg, France: Adventure Day

This was our first apartment with actual curtains. So I was hoping we’d sleep in a bit. But up at our usual 6:30am 🙄

We lazed around a bit then headed out the door about 8ish. Our plan was to walk around and enjoy the city before attending mass at the Notre Dame Cathedral of Strasbourg.

The walk along the canal was incredible. We saw baby ducklings and a baby swan.

We were walking up to the church and the bells started to chime. The church is already to breathtaking. This just made it seem magical.

There’s so much history here it was a wonderful experience to enjoy mass in French. Even if we understood none of it! The kids and Ty did pretty well with that. R even got selected to help bring up the donations. She was so excited and nervous!

We weren’t allowed to take any photos inside. Also we had planned on climbing the spire but learned it’s closed for the next six months. Bummer when stuff like that happens.

After mass it was so crowded around the church. It is the big thing to see in Strasbourg. The kids did enjoy this bubble guy though.

We walked around some more just enjoying the beauty of this town.

We may have also found a few playgrounds to check out.

More beautiful town!

We had an amazing indian lunch. Then back to the apartment for some relaxing time. We Uber’d to Jardin Orangerie and checked out their free zoo and playground.

Gelato prior to dinner!

Just some waiting for dinner portraits.

Everyone was tuckered out but it was a beautiful evening and walk home from dinner.

Looking forward to getting back on the bikes tomorrow.
