Colmar, France is a charming medieval town that, at least in winter, doesn't see many tourists. I think these people and us made up about 50 percent of the total who were there the last week of November. But, it's an easy half hour train ride from Strasbourg, and so we went. (Thanks again, Eurail.) There are plenty of things to do there in winter, though, including my favorite, which is to walk around, eat the food and drink mulled wine from the Christmas Market carts. Kris and I aren't so big on selfies, though. I do like the old lady with the bag in the background. Isn't that the problem with selfies, though? You go to all that trouble to set it up, and some clown photo bombs you.
