    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.
    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.
    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.

    Aujourd’hui hui on a lever a 5h15 pour nous rendre au gare de train pour prendre un train à Stuttgart. Le train train a Stuttgart été faciles à trouver mais quand on st arriver en Allemagne aucun des annonces été en anglais et notre train a changer de raille. Quand on été sur le train tous été bon.Sauf que notre train est arrêter dans Singen alleux e Zurich alors on est aller sur un train d’un different compagnie et puis finalement nous some arriver en Zurich.

    Puis on est aller acheter du chocolat et du chocolat et du chocolat chaud mais avent qu’on a acheter du chocolaté chaut on a aller dans tour que tu peut voir tous de Zurich dans.

    August 24 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    My final trail in Stuttgart for this trip. It was an excellent 10 Km trail, with lots of killer up hill stairs. I ended up paralleling many stretches', to avoid just running back to the check, so added a wee bit. Off to airport tomorrow morning . . . for the next adventure.

    Birkenkopf Stuttgart

    December 5, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 0 °C

    Das Wetter ist auch heute richtig toll. Die Sonne scheint schon am frühen Morgen. Doch es ist recht kühl, so zwischen -1° und +2 °C.

    Ich starte langsam in den Tag und mache mich auf zum Birkenkopf. Das ist ein Ausflugshügel mit einem tollen Ausblick auf die gesamte Stadt. Das spezielle am diesem Hügel ist aber, dass er zwischen 1953-1957 mit Schutt der im 2. Weltkrieg zerbombden Stadt Stuttgart um über 40 Meter erhöht wurde. Während dem Krieg wurden 45% von Stuttgart zerstört.

    Ich genieße die Sonne und bleibe eine geraume Zeit oben.

    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.

    Peace at Johanneskirche am Feuersee

    August 11, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    The Johanneskirche is built on a peninsular piece of land in the Feuersee lake right in the middle of town. It used to have a grand spire, which was destroyed in the wars and not reconstructed. The absence of the spire is keenly felt though, and leaving it unfinished makes it an even more poignant reminder of what once was. The main interior space of the church has been beautifully restored and well-maintained. Many people, locals and tourists alike, stop by the gardens and rest on the benches to reflect. Davy was particularly pleased to find a rare statue of Saint David inside. Unfortunately no such luck finding the even rarer Saint Megan - at least not this time.Read more

    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
