Travel 2019 – Alsace and Baden, Day 11, Mulhouse

Monday, 23nd September 2019 – Mulhouse Monday was mostly all about cars, so if they don’t interest you, you may want to look away now! When I was running the day before I got a good look at some of the neighbourhood, and while I was cooling down afterwards I took a few photos of…
