Weekend in Stuttgart Part 1 - Ulm

Since I have been in Germany I have only been in the city over the weekend once and that was the first weekend I arrived. From then on, I have been busy going on one adventure or the next. As my time is pretty much over here, I decided to stay in the city this weekend and explore some of the things I told myself I would see way before I even landed on this continent. I thought that I would visit the Wilhelma Zoological and Botanic Garden my first weekend in but I was busy doing other things so I decided to throw it in this time.

In any case, this is what I did last weekend. Took a train to Ulm, Germany which is on the river Danube and the birthplace of Albert Einstein. In Ulm I visited the beautiful, colorful and busy Ulm Marktplatz. But, my real purpose for going to this city was the see the famous Ulm Cathedral and climb all of its 768 stairs.
the beginning of the 768 stair climb. Which I did of course albeit huffing and puffing pretty much all the way up. So was everyone else so I didn't feel too bad.

Hi Demmi

The guys in Germany are cute yes but not all. They can be/are blunt. I have developed a term, 'the German stare'. You might get this a lot as I did and a few other black girls I know who ventured into DE for vacation. You just have to ignore it. I think most times they might find you attractive but have no idea if they are allowed to approach you. The only advise I can give you is to have an open mind and have fun. Smile also and you will be surprised how many smiles might be returned. Don't take anything personally as I can almost guarantee noone cares.
I think you might find more attractive men (I think) in Italy but Germans have some great light and intensily dark blue eyes or hot sexy smuldering brown eyes. They are a blunt set of people so just have fun. Let me know if you have any other questions.
