Our first trip to France was a week-long vacation to Paris...and that was long before we were full-time travelers. We loved spending leisurely days walking along the river and crisscrossing the many bridges. With the Paris Museum Pass, we visited the top sights in the city and even visited Versailles for a day.

As full-time travelers, four years passed by before we made a return trip to France - but this time we skipped Paris and visited two lesser-known cities in the Alsace Region near the German border: Strasbourg and Colmar.
