Saturday Oct. 22ndDear Family & Friends,It seems as we approach the end of our adventure time is really going by fast..We spent two enjoyable days in Strausbourg, France.. I would highly recommend the city for a stop on any tour of Europe. It is located on the Northern edge of France right along the German boarder, so it has mixture of French and German culture there. It is a very old city with classic old architecture, a 1000 year old cathedral, a beautiful town square and gentle flowing canals throughout the city. A great place to stroll around. I took several long walks while there and thoroughly enjoyed myself..  Easy to get lost there with all the twisty streets but I completely turned off my navigational responsibilities and left it up to Duane..  We always eventually got back to our hotelOur hotel is a grand old hotel in classic European fashion. Lots of wood details and paneling and an elevator that looked like it was built in the 1800s. An all wood and glass elevator with a wrought iron gate.. Even though it was very old, it worked most of the time.. There were a couple occasions I had to walk the five floor of stairs to get to my room.After two days there it was time to keep moving.. Since we were both tired of riding in big cities and the country side here is so beautiful I booked us rooms in Luxembourg in the small village of Diekrich. It was an easy 2 3/4 hour ride from Strasbourg and the last hour was through some beautiful country lanes passing along villages and forests.. A bonus is the Luxembourg National Automobile Museum was two blocks from our hotel!.  The ride was easy and mostly dry ( a few sprinkles) but as we go father and father north and it is getting to be late fall it is getting COLD! Today it never got out of the 40s range and with the wind chill factor it certainly felt cold. (even with all our riding gear and electric jackets)Once we arrived we checked into our hotel and walked around town. That took about ten minutes. We had lunch and I went for a walk on my own. During my walk I passed by the Luxembourg National Car Museum.....
