Unforgettable Journey Across Europe with My Best Friends: Part 13

So, the fifteenth and final day of our journey had arrived. We had initially thought it was the last day and that everything would be calm. However, we had to rethink that because adventures didn’t want to let go of us so easily. But first, let’s go back to the morning. After a delicious breakfast at our hotel, we checked out and headed into the city.

After walking in the city center, we decided to take a city tour. To be honest, I am not a fan of these, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The tour incorporated a story throughout the entire route, presenting and describing buildings and places. I was actually immersed in the story, and it felt as if all the characters were dancing right before my eyes.

Throughout the whole day, I didn’t take a lot of photos in Stuttgart. To be honest, I thought I had more; maybe I put them somewhere? Oh well, some are better than none! Haha! 😀

So, until then, everything went smoothly. We caught our train from Stuttgart to Venlo, the Netherlands. Everything was fine until Monchengladbach. The train crew informed us that we needed to disembark in Monchengladbach and explained where to go because there should be a bus in front of the station with the sign ‘Venlo’ that would take us to the Venlo train station. Everything sounded easy and simple, but oh boy, it wasn’t.

Other passengers were also confused when they left the train and didn’t know where to go because there was no sign with ‘Venlo’ in front. So, we asked all of the bus drivers if they knew anything. Then we decided to check the other side of the station just to be on the safe side. Yes, there was the bus, but it didn’t have a sign for ‘Venlo’ and was standing a bit further away. So, we were quite stressed, even though we were so close to the Netherlands border.

When we finally returned home to the Netherlands, we were so happy to be back with a baggage full of memories and adventures. 😊

And with this post, I conclude the series of our two-week trip that took place this year. But… already planning new trips. Because the experiences we gain during our travels, we cannot obtain from books. I mean, I love books, but some experiences are meant to be lived and felt. Like I always say, once a traveler – always a traveler.
