Head-over-heels!

April 10, 2010 7 Comments A+ a-

Could I possibly fall in love with another European city?

My husband is working in Stuttgart, Germany.  I came over Thursday to spend the weekend with him. And, Stuttgart, I have fallen head-over-heels in love with you!

Super easy to get around, yesterday we took the bus and train into the city center. We walked the Koenigstrasse--shops, both large and small, buskers....and people everywhere. Of course, ask Norm and he'll tell you I went into every store, but, trust me, that's not even close to true! I did buy some pretty bowls--I have a "thing" for bowls and it was no problem to find some that I loved. I also found some plates that I didn't feel like draggin' around, but will get them the next time I am here.

Char-lot-ten-platz. I love saying this word!  One of the train stations:

























Koenigstrasse












The dishes I want to get next time.  They match little bowls I bought in Munich last year.














The fake silver statue busker...













There were plenty of musicians...







...and biers...



...and bierschnaps
(Norm drank this--I didn't like it much.  Tasted like watered-down whiskey, to me.)
This is a Braille map of the Metro system...I've never seen one like this before.
And, head-over-heels in love with this man, too!  (Even if he does think I am silly for taking pictures of ourselves!)

I lived near Stuttgart when I was a kid. On your next trip try to make it out to the castle in Ludwigsburg (20 mins away)...AMAZING gardens! (And I'm not even a garden type-o-guy)

Thanks, John. We are doing a volksmarch tomorrow and I head back on Monday. He said we'd save the castle for next time!
