Well this was our last weekend in Stuttgart (since next weekend we’ll be in Cologne, and the weekend after that I’ll be in Iceland)… so we decided to hop on a train and explore the city of Ulm – the home of the tallest church in the world, most crooked hotel (so says the Guinness Book), and the birthplace of Albert Einstein. It’s a beautiful city – they were just setting up for their Christmas Market – so all the lights were up, and the city was looking very festive. :)

On Sunday, we went to a small town just outside of Stuttgart where I rode a giant rabbit through the countryside. Kind of.

I also bought some Christmas gifts, but since some friends and family read this blog, I will not disclose what I bought, or where I bought from. After Christmas, I’ll do a full breakdown of how much I spent on presents.
