Weekend in Alsace and Lorraine

This weekend thanks to my cousin Cristi I had the chance to see a bit of Alsace and Lorraine outside the city of Strasbourg. We started with Obernai a typical Alsacian small city, very pitoresque and welcoming city. Then Gerdermer, a resort in the Vosgi Mountains with a very nice lake and skiing facilities, still working because was snowing while we were there. Finally, Colmar, a beautiful small Alsacian city with enchanting streets, medieval buildings, traditional small restaurants and canals (a small resemblance to Venice, or at least they aim for that), all in perfect harmony. The weather was very capricious, but even 20% sun was highly appreciated
