I’ll forgive you for thinking that chestnuts roasting on an open fire and Jack Frost nipping at your nose are only Christmas time delights. Here on the French-German border, they are the stuff of wintertime, even after St. Nick has packed up and headed home.
We spent a very cold weekend in Strasbourg, France, and found this chestnut roaster and his “heisse maroni” stand waiting for us outside the door of the Cathedral Notre-Dame de Strasbourg.
Chestnut roasters are a sight I’ll always welcome. Jack Frost, however, is growing tiresome.

Looks stunning! I passed through once on a 16-hour bus journey from Lyon to Prague but unfortunately didn’t get to stop!
Beautiful city. I’ll post more photos later. We haven’t been to Prague yet, but plan to head there soon–I hear it’s fabulous.
It is! That was a long time ago though – I’m due a return visit – and it’s only 4 hours from Berlin!
