Strasbourg is a small city in France with two rivers (or really, two branches of one river) winding around a central island.  Like many other places in that part of the world, it is full of old, crooked half-timber houses that are super cute.  There is also a gorgeous cathedral, a bazillion picturesque marcaron vendors, some lovely public spaces and lots of places to eat tarte flambee, which is basically just pizza with more fat.

Although the whole place was beautiful, the cathedral was the real highlight. I think Sarah was more enamored of the city than I was; while Strasbourg obviously has its own distinct character, but at that point I was a little tired of wandering around really beautiful small cities of a certain era.
