Alsace wine region

On Tuesday, 30th July, we enjoyed a quieter day.We explored Colmar a little more, visiting the cathedral, the Collegiale St Martin and the Dominican church.

On Wednesday we took a bus tour around some of the wine towns in the region. There was beautiful scenery . We stopped at Riquwihr and had lunch there.

Thursday, 1st August was a transfer day. We caught a bus to Basel and then the plane to Manchester. Sadly Manchester had had flooding on a runway and our plane didn't have enough fuel to circle so we ended up in Liverpool. We sat on the plane till it refueled etc and then arrived at Manchester hours later than expected. We then had to get the car and head to Birmingham. Thankfully, our lovely friends. Penny and John, brought us dinner at 9.30pm to our lovely apartment in Meriden.
