Stuttgart-Willy and Hildegard

Mercedes factory in Stuttgart

This mountain made out of the remains of this town caused by world war 2 is standing here to remind us of the victims and to warn the living .

Amazing how travel is – We met Willy and Hildegard in 1984 when Di and I were doing backpacking around the world. We met in Granada  in Spain and since then we have met and seen each other in South Africa/Australia/UK and Germany. Willy is a mature recycled teenager and checks our blog every day. They live in STUTTGART which was very badly effected by the second world war. The entire city was destroyed and had to be rebuilt. We have been there a number of times and it really is a beautiful city. Strange to visit a city in Europe and not find any real history because it was all distroyed. I asked Willy to contribute to the Blog and he sent a couple of photos of images of Stuttgart. The MERCEDES,PORSCHE and BOSCH factory is in Stuttgart and really is fascinating to visit. We spent a wonderful morning at natural thermal spa -Wonderbah!! Afterwards  Hildegard and Willie  treated us to the most beautiful fresh Trout lunch. The stream the Trout live in is soooooo clear and unpolluted. Clive just went crazy for the BRATWORST. He thinks Stuttgart  has the best BRATWORST!!No question!!   I have attached a short slide show with music of STUTTGART for you to watch if you want… click link below…
