Turckheim, Alsace, France

We have driven down to Alsace today which is an area of France that is right on the border with Germany.
It is also incredibly beautiful, in a fairytale chocolate box kind of way.
We went for a walk around the village this afternoon and every building was brightly painted, with lots of shutters in contrasting pastel colours. The number of red geraniums was amazing and there was huge flower displays everywhere.
We stopped for a glass of the famous local wine and just sat in the shade and soaked up the atmosphere.
There is also a lot of cyclists around here and a cycle path called the 'Route des vins' which I can't wait to try.
