Looking for Fresh Air in Abdij van Park Found Fresh Organic Drink!!

Going for an evening walk in Abdij van Park  for a breath of fresh air.  A park with stunning views, a monastery and 3 beautiful lakes.

Grazing cows such Beauty!!

We came across a beautiful lady by the New Milk vending maching.  She was refilling the Vending Maching with Fresh Warm Milk from the cows grazing in the pasture.   There’s nothing quite like Fresh Milk straight from the farm Tasty and  Organic.

Here a few words from beautiful Ine about the fresh milk from the Farm.  Oops !! my Video taking skills are not perfect.  No worries only start is upside down!!

Dont forget to take your own bottles if you want to buy it.

All info at http://www.boerencompagnie.be/

Dear Friends if  you live in Leuven or nearby  hope you check out this milk, share info with friends and enjoy!! 

In India we boil the milk  before drinking.    For a lighter texture add some water when boiling.    Cooling the milk after boiling gives a thick layer of cream on top which can be used to make Butter.  Homemade Cheese and Yogurt with Fresh Milk is so delicious.

I will be posting recipes with homemade paneer cheese and  yogurt in my blog soon.

Hope you enjoy some beautiful walk in Abdij van Park too.

Capital of Alsatian wine Colmar France

Colmar

April 2017. The girls were home for Easter Break and we decided to do a go on a long weekend Trip  to Colmar.

colmar1
Fairytale land or a real city??

Driving south west from Strasbourg along the Alsace Vine Trail  we reached this ancient gem of a town. Colmar is at the very heart of Alsace is the perfect starting point to explore the picturesque towns and villages along the Alsace wine country. Alsace in the Vosges mountains is an experience not to be missed.

Enchanting Vineyards along the Alsace Wine Route

This region is situated on the eastern edge of the Ballons des Vosges Nature park, a protected region of woodlands and historical sites including the imposing Haut-Koenigsbourg castle perched on top of a mountain.

The little Venice of France Colmar

Colmar enjoys lots of sunshine between March to October and said to be the driest part in France. Beauty of Colmar lies in its exquisitely maintained city center with little canals and very colorful houses.

Highlight of the day being chased by a Swan!!

Taking a canal cruise is a must-do while in Colmar. The nesting Swans are the Real Rulers of canals protecting their territory and their little ones. The swan in this picture was trying to chase our boat in the opposite direction and almost toppled our boat.  The boatman is used to this show and able to navigate around her.

The French sculptor who crafted the Statue of Liberty, Frederic Auguste Bartholdi is from Colmar.

Comlar’s Statue of Liberty

Colmar is indeed a pretty little town, and worth a weekend visit. Must see places would be Tanner’s district, little Venice, Dominican church, Maison Pfister, Koifhus and a boat trip on the canal.

Surrounding places of interest would be the Vosges mountains and the Alsace wine trails. The black forest region in Germany is about two hour’s drive from Colmar.

This post  was shared by  Antony Joseph who is an avid traveller with lots of travel Stories to Share.  He is always planning a new trip either for work or for pleasure. He loves adventure and our dinner time is filled with a collection  adventure stories from his travels.

Hope this post has inspired  you to visit Colmar when in Europe!!  Happy Travel.
