Exploring Stuttgart, Germany: A Travel Wishlist

Germany has always been a country I’ve wanted to visit, from the culture to the history and in some cities, the night life. So when my auntie Val called up asking if we’d like to visit her in Stuttgart (back in 2006!), I jumped at the chance.

We had planned to do a tandem bunjee jump alongside the 02 arena on this trip. But unfortunately they were sold out! πŸ™ Instead we booked an […]
