Could you not just eat this place up? Alsatian villages are the absolute cutest. As if Colmar didn't provide enough swooning for the day, we decide to make a pit stop at another vineyard-engulfed village before heading back to Riquewihr for the night. Kaysersberg, a village just 11 km north of Colmar, was equally as charming but on a smaller scale. There were maybe 15 streets total...but an abundance of overflowing flower boxes, colorful facades, and tiny shops filled with wine, cheese, and more French sweetness than one could ever handle. If you Google Earth this town, you'll see vineyards wrap around every square inch of it (same with all the little villages dotted throughout Alsace). A wine-lover's dream if there ever was one. There wasn't much to do here but wine and wander-it-up...but my camera sure was happy, and so was my heart. Joie de vivre at its finest. These tiny towns hidden among the grapes are what my traveling soul yearns for. Simple and quaint, yet unique as a snowflake...no two hold the same quirks as the next.
As the French say, "Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimes beaucoup!"
Kasyersberg (and Alsace) in a nutshell. ♥
