Altstadt


Saturday morning. I had a bad night, not because of Alex…. He was 500 meters away from me J but because of the noise at the streets and in the hostel. After a shower and a breakfast with Pablo at 9 am, we did walked around Heidelberg. I was waiting for Brett’s call to join us in Heidelberg. He sms’d me and was surprised that we were already walking. So we picked up Brett and Guido and started walking to the river. We crossed the river and are going to the Philosophenweg to get a good view from the castle. There were quite a lot of steps but it was worth it. Back to the river we followed the girl in red. J

We heard were the others were and joined them in the centre on the street having there breakfast.

Resting
We saw that Narrie and her friend Wilco were there also. But after a little bit off talking they left for there siesta, they were tired also from travelling to Heidelberg.

We all start shopping in the centre and we walked around a bit and stopped somewhere for a drink. Luckily there were girls on the terrace too!

Around 3pm we were back at the hostel and Narrie and Wilco were awake. Alex and me walked pĂĽnktlich to the square in the centre and then we met Bettina and Sam. Ana was already there.

They first official part of the Meet-up was going to start. Visit the castle and taste the wine. There were only 315 steps to the top, so no problem J . We saw the castle inside, tasted the wine, take a lot of pictures and suddenly Oush arrived. The second time I meet him.

Around 5:30 we were back at the hostel and we met Koosje and wouter.

They had had a lot of traffic jams. We gave Ana her T-shirt

“I am not a tourist, I live here”

Narrie and Wilco checked in between 3 and 6 pm, and then you get a free drink. Wilco thought: Why not taking the biggest glass they have, and he got “1 LITER BEER” for free! Nice job Wilco! J  Another TravBuddie showed up :  Sven,  welcome !
At 6 we went to the restaurant at the layergasse 6, (20 meters away) and we had our drinks and diner. It was a complete surprise that Ana was called by Lili from
Lima, Peru. She loved it so much; she showed her biggest smile she had!

At 9:15 it was time to find a place to see the WORLD FAMOUS  “Schlossbeleuchtung” and fireworks. It looked likes the castle was on fire. The fireworks were great. It took about 20 minutes before they finished it. Great show!

Then we were with 9 left and went to the Cave. We had just one drink and left, to go to the centre of the Altstadt, were everything is happening. We just entered a bar and had our drinks and fun.

Ana, a great TravBuddie Meet-up in Heidelberg. You are a perfect host!
