Road Tripping - Germany & France II

From Tubingen, we made our way to Schloss Lichtenstein. 
"Is this castle in Lichtenstein?"; I enquired.
"No. In Germany."
"Extremely confusing."; I concluded
The castle was picture perfect and perched on a steep cliff. I half expected  Sleeping Beauty to come out, but disappointingly, that didn't happen.
After having a little look around and snapping a few photos, we drove towards Alsace region in France.

We based ourselves in a little village along the wine route and then went in search
"They have a festival of wine in the next village along. Let's go."; exclaimed The Husband.
"But I don't like wine!"; I protested .
I'm terribly unsophisticated like that. I don't like wine, I don't like champagne, but I'm partial to a bit of vodka. 
"Well, Alsace is famous for wine, not vodka so I suggest we just go."; The Husband pressed on: "And with wine they give you different cheeses and other nibbles so you won't go hungry."
The mention of cheese did the trick so I decided to come along.

The village was teeming with people. French people. All dressed in their finest glad rags. I felt incredibly underdressed in my casual traveling clothes so I begrudgingly started on wine to make me feel better. Several hours later I was still on wine, but feeling much better about my sartorial choices. 
"I really hope I don't have a headache tomorrow."; I announced.
Unsurprisingly, however, the following morning I woke up with the mother of all headaches. 
and promptly decided never to drink wine ever again.
I wore:
Sunnies: Whistles
T-shirt: Selected
Necklace: Kenneth Jay Lane
Bag: Cleobella
Chinos: Gap
Sandals: Miss Trish Of Capri
Watch: Olivia Burton
Bracelet: Fiorelli

I love a road trip once in a while. We did one in June and that was heaps of fun. I don't, however, do well with REALLY long car rides (I mean more than 5-6 hours at a time). I am glad you are having a great time there! Look forward to see more picture updates!

Divno mjesto... a dvorac...ah, dvorac... omg koja divota i krasota! Zao mi je radi glavobolje od vina... na mene vino ima slican ucinak iako ga volim s vremena na vrijeme pijuckati... bijelo preferiram... sampanjac nikako :)
Nadam se da se zrtva isplatila barem zbog sira :)

I don't like wine either, if it makes you feel better! Then again, I don't like any kind of alcohol. Odd fact, haha.
Everything here looks so romantic. So much old world charm I can't handle it! And your outfit is perfect for exploring the region.
