Thanks, this is some very useful information.. My Parents are on vacation in Scotland and from there they're going to Heilbronn since dad has to visit a company there. I've booked an online Eurorail pass for them.

I helped that I had been to Heibronn recently so knew a few things only someone who had been there would know. Like where is a nice Tchibo.

Now I'll let Sam continue....

Did you know Wilhelm Maybach was born in Heilbronn. I visited Atmel there and there are quite a few housewares, automotive and semiconductor comapnies based in and around Heilbronn.

Mindbogglingly true love story.
I was expecting next post of Sam will be after 24 hours from last one.
But lot of water passed through river since my last log in to this thread.
Remarkable change in writeup i.e. fast, fast and really fast and that is good.
We would like to read Theone's post about Theyeti's unexpected sudden appearance in front of her.
Waiting for Theone's reaction.

Default YetiBLog® - 19th July 2008

Wake up nice and easy, Japanesy. No rush, we're on holiday.

Soon we're out in the town, near the city centre walking around. A quick brunch and then we're out into the centre, shops, people, city-life on a weekend.

Then we find the hotel where Navin was supposedly "staying" when he bluffed to Jenny telling her he was visiting Heilbronn. Nice hotel by the river Navin, lol.

We then decide to go swimming. It's a mixed decision as the weather cannot really make up its mind. The sky is full of clouds and when the sun peeks through, it is BRIGHT and warm and swimming weather. But everytime the clouds go in, it gets a bit chilly and brrr...

On our way to the Freibad I spot an old lady. She must have been 60ish, wrinkled but all decked up, eye make up, lipstick and everything, on her easy rider motorcycle. I try to take a picture but I am too late to get her face.
