What I Did in Stuttgart (Part 1)

I am in love with Germany and am seriously considering never leaving. Once again I am astounded at the beauty that surrounds. The rolling green hills are stunning. Red roofs dot all of the little towns that are tucked into the small valleys all over the countryside. Everyone NEEDS to visit this amazing place. Stuttgart spreads out over several hills, which provides numerous lookouts where you can see the whole city. Katy and I found one of these last night just as the sun was setting. The whole city was bathed in golden sun. It was so perfect.

Today we went to Liechtenstein Castle today. The castle is an hours drive outside of Stuttgart and my face was glued to the window the entire time. I can't seem to soak in Germany fast enough; my eyes feast on the never ending hills and trees. The view from the castle was just as enchanting. I had a magnificent view of the valley and town below through the crisp summer air. From the castle we stopped at an old town square. Most of the buildings here were constructed sometime in the 15th and 16th centuries. How amazing is that?! Sometimes I wonder what the walls would say if they could talk.

Our last stop was to the Ritter Sport chocolate factory. This place might just be heaven on earth. When I walked into the shop there was wall-to-wall chocolate in every flavor imaginable: vanilla mousse, strawberry yogurt, chocolate with cornflakes, creme brûlée. It was hard to narrow down my choices so, naturally, I walked out with 10 different flavors :) 

Also, normally I would apologize for a huge number of photos, but I'm not even sorry. I couldn't help posting so many because I love them all!
