Strasbourg area have for many reasons attracted people from time immemorial
political, economic, strategic and splendid scenic beauty
though perhaps last but not least the easy accessibility of all the waterways.
There has always been great prestige to stay as close to the water as possible.
With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
this is 2nd version of the travel theme “Land meets water“
The water was in many cases, in addition to being traffic connection to the outside world
also partly protection against this outer world when it was less friendly.
Perhaps therefore the EU part-time parliament in the city is like a fortress-like monument.
Even politicians although how much they wanted – can’t walk on water.
