Daily Travel Inspiration – France

Eguisheim 4, originally uploaded by Foto Martien.

Eguisheim, Haut-Rhin, Alsace, France.

This area is of special interest to me, not just because of the Wine Route that passes the village. Most of my mother’s mother’s side of the family immigrated from here in 1850 after the Napoleonic changes caused starvation. They settled in the United States in wine country where Napoleon had recently sold some land.

Do any travel plans of yours involve discovering your family heritage?

I'm Julie, I love to travel, I'm very hyper and I like to "hype" things and from that, TravelHyper was born. I'm a Missouri native and I cover St. Louis travel ideas as well as my own travels. I also like to focus on places I want to visit and budget travel ideas by creating trip plans. There's so much world out there and I hope you'll find that it's worth seeing and that vacation doesn't have to be out of reach to you.
