A traveling we will go

I am usually quite the planner. I like to know where I’m going and how I am getting there and what I am doing when I get there. This trip has made me throw that all right out the window! Now, I really just go with the flow.

Where I have been

For the past few days I have been staying in this great hostel called Alex30. They are located 50m off a bus stop and give you a welcome drink for 1€ upon arrival. The staff was very friendly and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. I was able to walk to almost everything that I wanted to see, and what I needed a train for was just as easily accessible.  If I ever find myself in Stuttgart again, I would absolutely stay at Alex30.

I was very hesitant to buy my bus ticket to Frankfurt on-line but it was 11€ vs 70€ for the train. The website was giving me an error message and then my credit card was not going through. I decided that I would buy it when I got to the bus station. I think I knew deep down that I would almost miss this bus. I had to take the U-Bahn to the S-Bahn to get to the bus station. My S-Bahn was late and had a 10 minute delay on the track. Things were not looking good.  I read the signs wrong when I got off the S-Bahn and started walking in the wrong direction for about 5 minutes before realizing I was nowhere near where I needed to be, and turned around and walked as fast as my extra 60 pounds of backpacks would allow me, and begged the ticket counter to sell me a ticket with one minute until departure! I made it, barely, but left my bag of snacks and neck pillow at the ticket counter. This little snail is leaving her trail of things as she travels.

Let me know your thoughts!
