On Friday the 21st we fly to directly to Strasbourg from Olbia and then catch a train to Sarrebourg. We are meeting up with Eric and Bev and the following day we get on to the barge in Boofzheim. We are spending seven nights on a luxury barge travelling through Strasbourg to Hesse. You would think with all the Germanic names we would be in Germany. This region has been both under the control of France and Germany over the centuries. It will be interesting to try and speak French while we are there. in Italy close to the Swiss border in the Alps people spoke German. On Saturday the 29th we will drive towards Charles de Gaulle and spend a night close to the airport. We catch the day time flight home on the 30th, giving us a day to recover before we go back to work.
