Wake up in Stuttgart, find place to sleep :)

There was a quick change of plan, decided at about 4 a.m. the previous evening. I would no longer be getting a 10 a.m. train to Munich so I can fly to Madrid, but rather I would improvise some accommodation in Stuttgart and hang around to get Socceroos tickets in the morning. Initially this had meant I'd be sleeping on my sleeping bag on the floor of the hostel with about 80 other people, but later in the day I asked reception if any dorm beds at opened up, and sure enough, asking paid off!
At one point I was at the hostel desk asking for the Qantas phone number and the timetable to Munich, basically the process was, figure out what the latest train is I'd need to get to Munich to make my currently scheduled flight, and if I can't figure out an alternate flight before then, then I'll just have to fly to Spain.
Woke damn early, had brekky with Bru, tried to hold a conversation with a Pommie journalist, but was running on about 2 hours sleep.
Handed photo CDs, het etc to the McDonals and saw them in toa taxi, then had to find a place to sleep! The hostel DJH had floorspace with 80 others so that was initially winning.
Walked in to the city, got a message from Ange (who provided the spare ticket to the Brazil game in Munich) so met up with her, had lunch at a good wrap place we'd found.
Watched TUN vs UKR from the fanfest site.
Wandered to the fan embassy, learnt what the differences were in the forger tickets.
Managed to get a dorm room bed rather than the floor.
