Me and my German friend at the Germany World Cup opening game.

I met a girl on Couch surfing... not sure if anyone has ever heard of it.... but its a cool site. Anyways we were "surfing her couch" and hanging out with her for a day in Stuttgart Germany.  She met us at the train station and we ditched our backpacks in a locker. 


Stuttgart was packed with tourists and everyone in German shirts, scarfs, hats, and other crazy things.  Luckily we brought german flag tattoos to put on our cheek.  We walked around shopping a little all the stores on the main street had soccer everything!  Then we found fun games like Life Size Foosball, Ryan played and it was funny to watch. 

We didn't really get to see any real tourism of Germany but we got to go to the town square for to watch the opening game with thousands of people.  It was quite amazing when Germany scored.. everyone went crazy!

After the game we went back to Essington where our German friend lived, changed and went out for some good german bier.  We met some of her friends and it was a great time hanging out with them.  The next morning she introduced us to Nutella and I became obsessed it is the most amazing thing ever!
