Travel Diary, Day 4 – Stuttgart

Hey!

Welcome to day 4 of my travel diary! This is the day that we went to Stuttgart, a bigger city in Germany. Our plan was to sightsee, and pretty much just walk around to look at everything.

First, to get to Stuttgart, we took a train. I think it was the first time that I have ever taken a real, actual train anywhere!

We arrived at a big station in Stuttgart, which had some little shops, pieces of artwork (there was one statue-like display that was a bunch of chocolates on top of each other!), and pigeons. The pigeons will become a theme on this trip!

The city was big and very pretty. It had a lot of sights to see, like historical streets, where there were fountains, big buildings, and old palaces.

We stopped for a drink, and I got a Fanta. I think Fanta is the Coke of Germany and France; many restaurants offer it, and I’m pretty sure it just means an orange-y soda, but they usually serve it with the Fanta bottle, so I guess it’s usually all Fanta!

We then went into a building that had an elevator up to a room with glass walls so you could see a view of the city! It was very beautiful!

Here is an interesting gift shop that we entered, with some unique trinkets.

So many of the streets in Germany were made with this pattern; it was interesting to me. I wonder why? Is it a style people like, or did it serve a purpose?

Another really amazing place that we went was a world market, which had so many different types of food!

I got a few pictures of that, but one of my other favorite parts of this market is what they had upstairs, which is a bunch of home dΓ©cor items, plus some beauty products. One of my favorite styles is shabby/cottage chic, and they had a whole section devoted to it! It was so fun to walk through!

We went to have lunch in a cafeteria-like restaurant inside of a shopping center. I was excited to find some pasta (ravioli) because I hadn’t had it in a while and I was relieved to eat something a bit different than the normal German meals that I had been eating.

After lunch, we looked through the mall just for a bit and saw some some lederhosen and dirndls, and they looked quite fancy! They even had a style of lederhosen meant for women, which was cool!

After that, I don’t think we did much else! We walked around a bit more, got on the train, and went back to the house!

I hope you enjoyed the fourth travel diary day! It was mostly just walking around, so I didn’t have that much to say; mostly there were just pictures I wanted to share!

Happy Fanta ordering!

Love,
