There’s a lot going on in the world right now. Here in Europe, we’re starting another round of Covid lockdowns, and of course at home, the election is on everyone’s minds along with the fear of more civil unrest.
So today, I thought I’d share something lighthearted and fun. It’s a video I shot while driving out of my neighborhood, so I could show you the twisty, turny, car-packed streets of the city. My husband always says this is nothing compared to Rome or Vietnam, but as someone who has only ever driven in the US, I find it a bit challenging still!
Remember that it might take a few minutes for the video to load, and hopefully it won’t make you carsick:
I hope that took your mind off of this turbulent world and its troubles for a few minutes. And may your weekend be full of God’s peace and presence, no matter what happens around you.
Thanks for stopping by ~

Thank you for a little tour of Stuttgart. I was born there in 1956 and have always wanted to come back to see the town. Being an Army brat that never happened.
I was born in Stuttgart in 1954 and enjoyed this video too! I returned later to live in Darmstadt ( Army Brat) and also in 1994 when we lived in Spain ( Navy wife). I hope we get to see more videos of today’s Germany.
How neat that several of you have lived in Stuttgart in the past! I will definitely post more so you can see what’s changed. Aren’t you lucky to have lived in Spain, too? That’s my daughter’s dream assignment.
I know how that goes! We’ve lived so many fun places and always mean to go back, but then we’re off on the next adventure. I’m so glad you liked going on a drive with me.

Stuttgart is so beautiful. Thank you for the driving tour. I did not get car sick 🙂
Wonderful! I’d hate to make anyone car sick!
Christy, your driving was impeccable and truly enjoyed the ride! I can only imagine walking the area since I enjoy walking….though admittedly on a nicer day! Continue to enjoy!!
Hey, Julie–The hikes around here are incredible, but definitely a workout! The one we did last Sunday had 45 degree hills at one point (this was in the vineyards). I tell myself that it’s how I can work off the bread and wine. Harley and I do a long walk every evening and we zigzag down the hill and then take the steps back up. And then we both fall into bed!
