The next stop on our trip was Freiburg. It's a charming little town in southwestern Germany. Tom had been there once before on a business trip and had told me all about the streams running along the cobblestone streets and the wisteria vines draping across the narrow alleys. His descriptions were so lovely it was hard to believe the city would live up to it. But it really did. It's a university town so there were a lot of young people riding around on bicycles and sitting out in the town square after dark. It gave the city a really vibrant, lively atmosphere.
We stayed in a small hotel with a restaurant on the first floor. They served us breakfast every morning which meant croissants and Nutella for me. Yum! One day we hiked up the hillside for a view of the city and the surrounding landscape. On other days we took small trips outside the city; one to Triberg and the other back across the border into France to visit Hirtzfelden. More on those trips later!
