The journey has started

10 maart 2008 om 9:06 am | In English Posts, Frankrijk |

Driving away from Leiden was a strange feeling… What, on earth are we thinking, driving all the way to China…… But after arriving in the picturesque city of Bergheim (founded in 1213), France and after a nice local diner (sauerkraut and Elzas wine), this feeling slowly started fading away (probably helped by the Riesling wine ;-) ).The visit to the medieval castle ‘Haute Koeningsbourg‘ was also great. Impressive to see this huge castel with so much history… And this is just the start. Haute Koenigsbourg lies strategically on the edge of the Vosges mountains overlooking the Rhine valley, the German Schwarzwald and, on a clear day, the Alps. Once founded by the Schwabs in around the year 1000, it has been occupied by the Habsburgers, the Swedes (who burned it down) and later on by various royal families from German, French and Swiss origine. Eventually it came in the hands of Wilhelm II who restored it.The castle is situated on the crossing point of the Silver Route and the Grain Route. Not quite on the Silk Route yet….  but we will be visiting much older and historically more relevant sites during our trip. We’ll be traveling through the area’s where modern civilisation has started…….. and with these thoughts, all remaining doubts disappeared and we’re looking forward for the rest of our trip :-) …. Let’s go to Italy today!
