Strasbourg  is the capital and largest city of the Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine (ACAL) region in eastern France and is the official seat of the European Parliament. Located close to the border with Germany, it is the capital of the Bas-Rhin département. The city and the region of Alsace were historically predominantly Alemannic-speaking, hence the city’s Germanic name.

Did you know?

Built between 1176 and 1439, the Cathédrale Notre Dame is undoubtedly Strasbourg’s finest architectural highlight. With a 142 metre tower is the highest cathedral tower in France.

Bonjour mes amis!

I received this card  from a swap on swap-bot! Thank you so much Anais! I love it ^_^

Grenoble is a city in southeastern France, at the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isère. Located in the Rhône-Alpesregion, Grenoble is the capital of the department of Isère. The proximity of the mountains, as well as its size, has led to the city being known as the “Capital of the Alps”.

Did you know?
French Toast Isn’t French. Joseph French advertised the modern toast butforgot to add the apostrophe.

Fun fact 2 French Toast in German is “Arme Ritter” – which literally means “poor knights”. Fun ^^’

Bonjour mes amis!

Apirak seems to be a real globetrotter! This time he sends me a card from the capital of Love – Paris! Thank you so much, you are awesome!

The Musée du quai Branly, in Paris, France, features the indigenous art and cultures of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. The museum collection has 450,000 objects, of which 3,500 are on display at any given time, in both permanent and temporary thematic exhibits. A selection of objects from the museum is also displayed in the Pavillon des Sessions of the Louvre Museum.

According to Apirak the museum is highly underestimated, so if you are in Paris – make sure to visit!

Salut mes amies!

The third card I got from my father of his trip!
This time from Le Havre in France!

Le Havre is also located on the English Channel and it has got the second biggest port in France (after Marseille). Le Havre means “port” 🙂 Fits very well don’t you think?

Boulogne-sur-mer, France

Salut les amis!

I have a strong feeling that it has been a little while since I last posted a card from France! I love this one, thank you Thomas!

First – Boulogne-sur-mer is such a nice name for a city! Sounds so pretty! 😀
Thomas asks on the card: Don’t you like all these brick houses with red roof? It’s quite common here!Yes, I think they just look very nice! Here where I live we don’t have so many brick houses, but you can see on the card, that there are so many of them in France! So much red 🙂 I like it a lot!

Bonjour mes amies!

My bestie Saskia did send me another card from the capital of Love – Paris.
I think that is about the third card I got from her sent from Paris. I am so jealous! I have never been to Paris, but I would love to go there one time and see the Eiffel Tower for real 🙂

Thank you Saskia, du bist meine Beste 😉

Nancy, France

Bonjour les amis!

I got this card from my friend Susischmusitittchen (yes, that is her real name 🙂 ), Danki danki!!

Suse ( I am just gonna short that up a little 😉 ) is doing a ERASMUS student semestre in Nancy. It seems like she really enjoys her stay, unless we are hardly missing her around here.
She actually forbid me to write what she wrote on the postcard. Unfortunatly I have to say, cause she is good in the writing part, but you can check out what she wrote on this, or this card. It is just classic!

I send love!
