Rethinking Stuttgart
Posted August 26th, 2009 - 4:06 pm by from Apeldoorn, Netherlands (Permalink)
Hi all, I have been thinking about NOT coming by car to Stuttgart ( having a small operation and other treatment which may make driving difficult ), but as I was planning to go to France after the meeting I am now rethinking the whole thing. Maybe flying somewhre? Is there an airport close to Stuttgart where there is a cheap airline to somewhere warm? I have been searching but am under the impression that Frankfurt-Hahn is the only one. Am I correct or are there other possibilities? It seems a shame to go back to Weeze ( Duesseldorf) by train and bus if there is another possibility. Any and all suggestions will be welcome.

Hi Annette, thanks for the info. I must admit I had no idea where Zadar was, but it looks a good place to be in that time. Thanks I'll start looking into it.

Hi Heidi, Thanks for the offer but I found several opportunity leaving from Stuttgart , so I think I'll go to Croatia instead of France.
The only problem I now have is that I have a couch on the outskirts of Stuttgart, so maybe I'll have to swap that with someone who is staying closer to the city center and nearer the U Bahn with Ryan Air.
I'll try and get something done about that as soon as possible.
First I'll have to finalise arrangements with a house sitter, then book a train ticket to Stuttgart and then two flights to and from Croatia. And then ....resting.... My mouse arm is getting too thick.

Hi AUssie, I have booked the train to Stutgart and will arrive on Thursday. I DO ahve a couch but it is outside the city as I was planning to go by car. Maybe there is someone who has a couch near the U-bahn or near the centre, has a car and is willing to swap? I am also willing to share with someone although I prefer CS-ing over a hotel.
Suggestions anyone ??? :-)
Going into hospital for along awaited operation tomorrow and will be back in a couple of days.

Hi all, my plans are now finite. I am coming by train to Stuttgart , staying with my very interesting host in SIndelfingen. On Monday I will fly to Zadar in Croatia and stay there for a fortnight. I have never been to Croatia so f anyone has suggestions I will be happy to hear them . I will be renting a car so getting somewhere is no problem. Hope to see you all in Stuttgart.

Hello,
I am very sorry that I can not come to Stuttgart because of a funeral of the wife of a good friend (next Saturday); you will understand my reason without any doubt. But I wish you all a succesful weekend, enjoy the German hospitality and have a lot fun!
Afterwards we will read your experiences.
Wish you the best,
Peter
