As promised, here is the second part of the Strasbourg visit which I hope seems interesting some what- it was for me anyways. The journey was lovely and quick without any delays which made the ride much more enjoyable I thought. Here, as shown below, is the centre of Strasbourg which was full of vibrancy and people buzzing around as they soaked up the culture there. There were cafés at every turn and markets on every street. It was an absolutely stunning sight...
The fountain pictured was the one I talked about in the previous post which is a smaller replicate of one in Paris- pretty cool, huh?
The architecture, in fact the city's whole design was stunning with the different coloured houses and styles of windows. I have yet to find out why they had doors on the windows, which I think are actually called 'casement windows'. However I had a quick google just now and I think it was for ventilation as well as curtains being pretty expensive at the time. It was also just the common architecture of medieval times in Europe (especially France and Germany!).
As we strolled around the city and did a bit of shopping, my lovely friend Charlotte took some photos of me by the fountain 'aubette de fontaine'. I just wished we could've had more time to look around all the historical sites, as well as museums. I am a bit of a history nerd in that sense- oops.
Luckily I did get some pretty cool photos of the city and the cathedral,although we didn't go inside and have a proper look as we ran out of time sadly.

Here are some more gorgeous photos of the different architecture in the city. I just found it super cool how they had such different coloured buildings, which is so uncommon in England. Furthermore their window designs just blow ours out of the water.
The wonderful 'Aubette et Fontaine', hopefully I got that right and nobody here who lives there will shout at me. I genuinely just adore Strasbourg, actually all of France is pretty pleasing ( I do love Germany equally though, with its great pretzels and childhood memories!).
I did go a little overboard with the photos of architecture, can you tell I enjoyed it? Well that's all really, so I'll stop rambling as it's getting pretty dull for you I can imagine.
Do stayed tune for one more Strasbourg post ( I think! I apologise if not but there should be one!). I hope you enjoyed reading this very jumbled and non structured post nevertheless! :)
Ciao, Jess xx
