    Travel by train

    September 9, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Today we had to wake up at 5: 15 a.m to catch our train to Stuttgart but first we had to to take the metro to the train station. The train we had to take in Paris was really easy to find but when we got to Stuttgart all the announcements were in German and our train changed track numbers. Once we were on the train to Zurich everything was fine. Until there was an announcement that said that trains final stop was going to be Singen even though we were still 40 minutes away from Zurich. So we and some of the passengers got on another train from a different train company in the end we got to Zurich.

    When we got to Zurich, we went to the oldest candy shop in Zurich and we bought some chocolate. The candy store has been open since 1836. Then we walked around a bit and saw around 30-40 swans and we saw 8 swans, some pigeons and seagulls just siting on a thing near the water.

    Next we went to Grossmunster church, which is 900 years old. The church was built in 1130 and was finished in 1230. Then we climbed a tower that had 187 narrow steps and some very low ceilings. When we got to the top of the tower there were 4 little balconies that gave us a different view and perspective of Zurich. We climbed down again and went back to the oldest candy shop. Attached to the candy shop was a restaurant where we got hot chocolate that wasn't too sweet, but still very good. The hot chocolate came with a mini plate of whipping cream and there were shavings of chocolate on both the whipping cream and hot chocolate. After finishing our hot chocolate we bought some groceries for dinner and had a relaxing evening in our appartement.

    Stuttgart #2

    August 20, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We came back to Stuttgart for round two. This time round we visited the wonderful old city, went up the TV Tower, relaxed in the town square and visited a model train shop. The Stiftskirche was really lovely. Sachsenheim was also very good with trips to the local pool and excellent times exploring the neighbouring villages of Bietigheim and Bissingen.Read more

    First supper in Stuttgart: Buffalo worms

    July 23, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Saw these insect burgers while passing by the frozen food section and just had to give them a try! Turned out to be pretty convincing (that is, realistic meat-y texture) and tasty to boot - Davy even came back for seconds. Don't think that they will become a regular dish in the Jones family meal rotation though, after Poppy had to gross everyone out and look up the ingredients online.

    Tonight we are also doubly grateful that our too-good-to-be-true apartment in Stuttgart really does exist. It didn't even turn into a pumpkin patch at midnight and during the opening heat wave, the proprietor Franck kindly brought us a bonus fan to help keep cool. And check out the unbelievable views from our front door - on one side a beautiful old church, and on the other, yes it is, none other than a Tesla showroom.
