Ana (stone31)and the ghost. ;)

Ana and I had been talking on TravBuddy for a while but never got to meet until this day. It was a rush decision but I'm glad I made the trip to Heidelberg where Ana used to live. It didn't take long to get to Heidelberg from Stuttgart, because I was extremely lucky with traffic.

We had arranged to meet at the main train station in Heidelberg as it is one of the easiest places to find in any city.  I waited a little bit, but I don’t mind people watching at all and she was arriving on public transportation.  After we had found a suitable place for my car to be parked for longer than 15 minutes, we started exploring the downtown area. 

It was more about getting to know Ana better than really seeing the city.

  I wasn’t looking for a free tour of Heidelberg.   I remember us getting coffee at a small restaurant where we sat outside and talked for a while.  We clicked instantly and had a great chat about travelling and travel partners.  She actually met her current boyfriend while travelling. Great love story and he shares her passion for travel.  Oh, how I wish, I could get my hubby to really catch the travel bug.  He’s down with the flu as I am typing this, but that’s a different kind of bug.

The stroll through historic Heidelberg was absolutely impressive. The fortress that sits on the hill overlooking the city is massive, but I was going to visit it at a later time. I'm sure to return one day. It's such a pretty city. 

Ana and I had something between lunch and dinner at some point, and the food was amazing. I can’t remember the place’s name though.  After the food we ended up at Starbucks where we had yet another coffee, before we headed toward the river and crossed the massive bridge that Heidelberg is famous for.

As I am typing this, more than three years later, I’m sad that I still haven’t returned to this gorgeous place.  I also haven’t seen Ana again, even though we stay in touch.
