Stuttgart, Germany: My first time in Europe

Synopsis: My parents called me and told me my dad was taking a job in Europe, and invited me to go with them. I have been saving for a couple of years, so I could move to France next year and pursue my dream of pro basketball in Europe. Why not move there a year earlier and get a head start on the competition?

Trip Overview: We land in Stuttgart, Germany in the middle of the day and we are met at the airport by some of my dad's colleagues. We get on the autobahn, and it is just a highway. I don't know why, but I thought it was either a dirt road akin to what the motocross racers ride on, or it was a super futuristic highway like Rainbow Road from Mario Kart 64.

We get to the hotel and walk down to the imbiss (snack shop) and notice that the "american burger" has egg on it, since we do that in America all the time. We see the kino (movie theatre) across the street and they are playing films in english with german subtitles.

Back at the hotel it is about 10:15 in the evening and I notice the sky is still blue and I can actually still see the sun. Wow, never seen that before.
Going to our new place

Moving in is always new and exciting



Final Thoughts: Over the course of the next 21 months, I traveled in and out, and all around Germany and Europe. This move was the catalyst for the experiences that you will read about in my blog.
