My hand carry luggage is finally packed. We will be having a weekend trip to two countries, Switzerland and France. This is the best time of the year to visit Christmas markets in Europe. One more sleep and we will be visiting Basel, Riquewihr and Strasbourg. At the same time we will also have some sightseeing in these places.
This will be my second visit in Strasbourg, first time in Riquewihr and Basel. I have been to Switzerland for around three times and this time I will be visiting another city, Basel. I will be going with some friends. I know for sure, this trip will be interesting and full of fun again.

Strasbourg- the capital city of the Alsace region in France. It is famous for its beautiful historical centre - the Grande Île - which was the first city centre to be classified entirely as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Riquewihr- A town in Alsace which is popular for tourists. It is famous for its historical architecture.
Basel- A city in Switzerland, is the third most populous city in the country. It is known for its medieval town. Basel is also rich in architecture old and new, with a Romanesque Münster (cathedral), a Renaissance Rathaus (town hall), and various examples of high quality contemporary architecture.
I will share more travel experiences when I come back from these places.
