hello Barbara and Franck !
so funny to recognize the Mulhouse xmas market : I had my 6 meter cabin their for some years selling my homecrafted stuff ! we won't have one this year (covid), but this year's fabric is beautiful, have a look https://mulhouse.marchedenoel.alsace/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2020/11/tissuaumetre_resilience-BWirth.jpg.
So impressed by your numerous travels !

Barb and Franck. So many lovey travels and photographs you share with us.
Thank you for sharing.
Blessings and thank you Corey for introducing us to so many wonderful people
Have a beautiful Christmas everyone

Wonderful photos. Now I have to look up all the places you've shown, especially LaRoque-Gageac. Great travels! Your photo of the lavoir reminds me of one in Italy that was still being used. In 1975 I did a college year abroad and for the first month lived with an old woman in Tuscany. There was a communal lavoir/lavatoio like the one you picture here and that was where she did all her laundry. Hard yellow soap and scrubbing clothes on the wide stone edge with a wood backed brush. Then rinsing and ringing in the cold water. A lot of work but nice to be outdoors and be with others doing your chores. I was there in September. I wonder what they did in the middle of winter??

I love this post! Thank you for sharing parts of France I rarely see! I enjoy your photos and I am glad you are able to travel so often -what a life! When my husband and I traveled we managed to take all the back roads as well -so much to see when you get away from the tourists stops!

I love the photos. They make me want to travel sooo much!

I would love to go to the Alsace Christmas Market next year. Any advice on where to stay, etc.? Loved your post. Thanks for sharing.

Can the Christmas fabric 2020 from Mulhouse be ordered? I followed Mimi’s link, but it didn’t work. I would love to have some of the fabric and I’m going to look into going next year!

I love Alsace! And of course the Christmas markets. We lived in Heidelberg for a year and when we tired of German food we drove to Alsace for French food. Such beautiful little towns. Lucky you to visit France so much with your love! Hope we all get to travel soon. I loved your photos. michelle

niki, I'm sorry the link doesn't work, this one should be ok :
If you have any problem ordering or shipping let me know, I'd be glad to help

Wonderful story and photos.

Now I need to go back to France. I have missed some of those things you mention. It is so beautiful. We must be neighbors too, for I live in Portland.
