Finally left France and the TGV's nightmare! Unfortunately, the first few hours in Strasbourg were spent under constant showers. This did not, however, stopped me from strolling around Petite France, gazing at those romantic houses, as if I was in a medieval movie. Don't know which one I liked most: the colored flowers perfectly hanging from the windows, or the river Ille, flowing rapidly between the small islands. I was happy to know that the stork is the symbol of Alsace, since it is my favourite bird.
The afternoon was spent in Bern, and this city was a pleasant surprise, as it was the train trip with the typical Swiss-postcard landscapes: the milk cows on the grass, the small villages between the hills... I think I almost saw little Heidi running towards the train, with a Milka on her hands!
Everything is so neat on Switzerland, everyone always so polite and eager to help a tourist in need. I'm loving it!
