European Days of Art Professions in Lunéville

European Days of Art Professions in Lunéville

Last week end we had another opportunity to go to the castle of Lunéville. For the European Days of Art Professions, the castle welcomed different craftsmen. We first met a wig maker who was also a teacher. She explained about her job which enables her to meet actors, models. Sometimes she has to work one hair by one hair to create a perfect look.
Kaysersberg in Alsace near Easter time

Kaysersberg in Alsace near Easter time

As usual we stopped in Kaysersberg on our way to the center of Alsace. One week after Easter, decorations are still hanging in the streets. There are plenty of Easter rabbits and that is always a bit strange for people living in Lorraine as here bells bring Easter eggs, not rabbits. The colours are pleasant to look at and it makes streets look happ
Strasbourg cathedral

Strasbourg cathedral

Strasbourg cathedral can be seen from far away and recognized thanks to the only tower of the building. From 1647 to 1874 it was the tallest building in the world. A guide has explained to us that, if you imagine Strasbourg cathedral without this high tower and the part above the rose window, it is very similar to Notre-Dame de Paris. The front is
The stud farm of Rosières-aux-Salines

The stud farm of Rosières-aux-Salines

Before 1760 there were saltworks in Rosières-aux-Salines. The main well where salted water was pumped is in the middle of the stud farm square. In 1767 the place became a "royal stud farm" and was closed during the French Revolution, but it was soon replaced by all the people and horses of the French Army of Zweibrücken (Deux-Ponts) which moved t
Battle in East Sussex, England

Battle in East Sussex, England

To Christine to celebrate 40 years of (pen) friendship I have been to Battle about ten times and each time I have liked this town of East Sussex. It is so typically English with a "High Street", a "green", old shops but also with modern facilities. And it is not far from the sea, that is the English Channel, cold water and pebbles on the beach but
A book tree for children in Varangéville

A book tree for children in Varangéville

After the first book tree I saw in Nancy more than three years ago, I have discovered others during our trips in and around Lorraine. Book trees can be quite different : made with wood or plastic, outside or inside, made in an old phone box or at the corner of a house... Till now I had never seen a book tree for children. Varangéville, near Nancy,
Daffodils and Gérardmer in the Vosges

Daffodils and Gérardmer in the Vosges

When daffodils are blooming, we feel spring has arrived. Their yellow colour is so bright that you can't miss them when walking around. Here, not far from Nancy, we find them in or near the woods, in clearings. In the Vosges you can discover them in meadows. Near Gérardmer, there are so many to pick. The town organizes every other year a parade ca
La Cure d'Air Trianon in Malzéville

La Cure d'Air Trianon in Malzéville

Each time gardens are open in Lorraine we try to visit new ones. Today we didn't want to go too far and discovered La Cure d'Air Trianon in Malzéville which was especially open for the Rendez-vous aux Jardins 2017. La Cure d'Air Trianon was created in 1902 by the owner of the pub of Point Central in Nancy. He had noticed people liked walking in th
Hohlandsbourg castle in Alsace

Hohlandsbourg castle in Alsace

Hohlandsbourg castle, near Wintzenheim, is built on a top of the Vosgian mountains, not very high but enough to enjoy a beautiful view towards Colmar, the Black Forest and, of course, the Alsatian flat country. The high walls of Hohlandsbourg castle are impressing, and the size of the castle too. It was built in 1279 and extended in the following c
Turckheim in Alsace

Turckheim in Alsace

Turckheim is very near Colmar in Alsace. I went there years ago with my family and made my husband discover it last week end. Of course, Turckheim looks like other Alsatian villages with half-timbered houses, but I think a lot of people first think about it because of Porte de France (France gate) and because of the Veilleur de Nuit (Night Watchman
