Where I stayed
The Grad's

Flag of Germany  , Baden-Württemberg,
Saturday, April 24, 2010

Arriving in Stuttgart in the early afternoon (requiring half the time taken on our Ulm trip, even though we passed the city on the way), in no less than a few hours were we on our way to a beer-garden, a birthday party and some nice drinks and dinner with people not only younger than our parents, but even our own age.

A fun weekend of catching-up with my former neighbours and family-friends ("the Grad's"), showing Ann around the area I grew up, and capping off the trip with being stubborn and insisting that I could finish a pizza larger than the size of a Fiat Cinquecento front wheel. We ate well, drank well, smelt well, and slept well - having our first running shower and proper bed in a long time (Thank you Grads!).

Still no luck with a car, although a Plan B has entered the scene, and it's one I'm quietly fond of. All will be revealed in due course and next we are off to Berlin for a few weeks (with about 3 nights of accommodation organised). We have picked up some heavy duty sleeping bags now though, so I'm sure crashing at random German train stations will now be a treat!
