Similar to Pont des Arts in paris, Eiserner Steg featutres love padlocks along either sides of the railings.

The inscription on the top left of the image is a quote from Homers’ Odeyssy:

While sailing over the wine-dark sea to men of strange speech

Sunday: Having Travelled to Stuttagert on satuday evening, we head out for a late breakfast and a drive before making our  way back to the airport.

This is Stuttgart City library, it was such a shame that I did not have the chance to go in and have a look.

Sunday afternoon/evening: A great ending to the weekend, having traveled by car for the most part of my trip, I have frequented the word ‘Ausfahrt’ several times. I have come to now know that this means to exit (e.g from a highway).

I feel that this trip has truly been a short lived- but nonetheless a worthwhile and rejuvenating- exit from the long road I am taking in my everyday life here in London.

I hope to be revisiting Germany very soon to visit my friend and perhaps learn a few more words along the way.
