    There is no heaven.

    August 15, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    ... we did the "heaven for Benz lovers".
    It started a bit lets say.. awkward.
    As, however warned, Nika did not like the fact that I really did drive the old lady up until the main entrance.
    Nika does not like to show of.
    But I do.
    So this "we do this together tour" became a lonely walk in the dark.
    But as things go, in the end....
    So. Now to the museum.
    We really liked it, and I think it's worth a visit.
    Except...
    I missed the cars I came for. Or even hoped.
    .

    It was an exhibition from luxurious and exclusive cars. So I missed the "normal vehicles who made the History of Mercedes Benz .
    I lied if I did not see any W123, but only one 300TD in expo Travel. And a coach an coupe on a trailer in "transport"

    But not any W110, the type as Lieske or even not one!!! W114/W115 the type who saves their ass.
    ..
    Also in the department of "life savers"
    Not one ambulance from the type w110 , w115 or w123. A missed goal.. at least for me.
    ..
    Anyway. We were right in time, going in the morning, as there was quite a row as we looked outside to our Lieske, who got a visit from two Dutch cars.. a range rover and a defender.
    ..
    We stayed for more than 4 hours.
    As we left, we thought it would be nice to go to the Television Tower of Stuttgart..
    (Something like the first concrete tower in the world??)
    Had a coffee and went to the campsite.
    Did not want to go into the city, as the.roads are quite crowdy, many traficlights and... hills !!
    .
    We did a walk into the neighbourhood were we had diner and came home in fear of a thunderstorm. But it just missed us in a mile.
    Now..
    Heading for a place along the Rhine.

    Oil stains on Holy Ground.

    August 14, 2020 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    We drove 237km in five hours along German country roads.
    Now we arrived at the walhalla for Mercedes Benz car lovers.
    We are at the doorstep of the museum.
    Tomorrow morning we intend to drive her up until the front entrance...
    Just to show her of.
    She deserves it!
    And for sure...she will mark her spot!

    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.

    Adventsmärktle Stuttgart

    December 4, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 2 °C

    Um drei Uhr nachmittags habe ich meine kleine Wohnung bezogen. Alles ist tiptop und ich bin ganz in der Nähe zu U-Bahn und Busstationen. Ich will heute nicht mehr viel unternehmen, da ich sehr müde bin.

    So fahre ich in die Innenstadt zum größten Weihnachtsmarkt in Europa. Ja was soll ich sagen, ein bisschen viel Kommerz und viele Menschen. Aus diesem Grunde gibt es ein paar spezielle Fotos, einen Glühwein mit Schuss und dann ab nach Hause wo ich schnell einschlafe. chrrrrr.

    Stuttgart/ Sachsenheim

    June 30, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Stuttgart! Stayed in Sachsenheim with some wonderful friends and had a wonderful time in the surrounding area and the city for 4 days. It is really lovely (partly because there weren't many tourists), but mostly because of the people and it's wonderful charm.Read more

    Stuttgart

    October 5, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Heute beginnt unsere vorrausichtlich 8monatige Reise nach und durch Südostasien. Als erstes wollen wir nach Berlin trampen, wo wir bei einem unserer besten Freunde übernachten können. Es ist zum ersten Mal in diesem Herbst so richtig kalt und windig, was dem Trampen eine neue Herausforderung gibt. Wir fahren mit insgesamt 5 Autos und kommen nach 9 Stunden in Berlin an.Read more

    Stuttgart Kultur und Shopping

    July 6, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 30 °C

    Als Erstes assen wir in Stuttgart ein typisch- schwäbisches Essen. Maultaschen an dunkler Biersauce. Mit einem dunkeln Bier dazu. Sehr lecker. Danach sind wir auf in die Stadt. Das Wetter wurde immer besser, die Temperaturen stiegen. 🌡️Stuttgart ist eine Eins zum Shoppen und nebenbei kann man noch die Altstadt mit ihren verschiedenen Baustilen bewundern. Das Neue Schloss, der Schlossplatz, der Königsbau oder die Markthalle sind nur einige Beispiele...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.

    Tourists in Stuttgart

    June 9, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Our excellent tour guides showed us the highlight of Stuttgart today. First stop was the Mercedes-Benz museum, covering 130 years of German automotive history. It was a wonderful display of cars, such works of art, and fascinating history. For those inclined I'm sure the tech story was just as good. One of my favourites in the room of celebrity cars was the Popemobile, the old fire engine and the London bus also. Then it was on to the Bibliotheque, the Municipal library, a stunning building. Then a gentle stroll through the cemetery and coffee (ice cream, hot chocolate ....) in Schlossplatz. For a couple of members of our group the purchase of fidget spinners was also a winner. We ended the day with a tour of the coveted market.Read more
