This past weekend I went with some friends in BYAM to Baden-Baden in Germany, where we stayed at a hotel run by a lady who spoke no English whatsoever, and closed her hotel an hour before we got there. Luckily, she graciously came to the door and let us in after we rang the bell.
The next morning, we got up and drove across the border to Strasbourg, France. Country #11 for me! I was so excited. Strasbourg is a cute town and reminds me a little bit of Italy. We hit up “Cave Historique des Hospices de Strasbourg” first. They speak French and German in Strasbourg, but not a lot of English. After searching for the entrance for this wine cellar for 15 minutes, Shay finds a German and goes, “Spreckenze English?” He shakes his head. “Spreckenze Deutsch??” “Ja!” And we were all so relieved to find someone who spoke our second language. Haha! It was an old wine cellar underneath a hospital. And when I say old, I mean 1472!
I mean, how could I NOT take this picture….
We went exploring deeper into the cellar…
and some really old wine….
