I've had better rooms and service in a hostel. The front desk clerk was rude and not helpful. Our room still had the previous guests bathroom stuff in it (forgotten hairspray and gel), and our towels were askew. Our room was directly on the freeway and it was loud all night. Our room also smelled of smoke, even though we had smoke free. When we checked out the front desk attendant charged me more for parking than the previous attendant had told me. Overall experience was very poor.

Haven't have wifi for a day or so. Checking in now. We are loving this trip! Meeting a lot of amazing people, too! Trip highlights:
Toured the biggie castles of King Ludwig. Fairytales! Met some new friends from Pittsburg. Lots of walking! Lots and lots and lots of walking. And stairs; they're everywhere! The castles were …
... we were there for the whole afternoon and ended up coming away with two bags of lollies! They even started throwing out kitchen sponges just for fun.
Of course if you wanted something then you had to reply to the carnival salute of ahoy, which is the local greeting here. In other areas it's helau. And I was the only person in the crowd who spotted the two drunk Bananas in Pyjamas from the local ski club! Some cultural references just don't travel well!
... see their geographical locations. You would be surprised what makes the list and what doesn't. I could imagine that the Heidelberger Schloss made the cut, but it didn't.
So how many have I actually seen so far?
1. Melbourne - Royal Exhibition ...
... seen a proper one!
I have to say that my favourite animals are the birds of prey and the Riesenseeadler or Steller's Sea Eagle was amazing. The flamingos were also good to see as well as the kangaroos. It's always funny to think that animals from Australia are somehow exotic like a toucan, but the Germans love them! Germans have weird names for animals sometimes like:
1. Der Waschbär - raccoon (wash bear)
2. Raubtiere - ...
... town center has some really nice old buildings, however, they need to be taken care of.
Also most shops are especially made for tourists, esp. for Asian ones. Asian employees work in the shops and there are Asian letters on the windows. That at least to me is a definite turn off as after all it is Heidelberg, a town famous for its history, culture and university. I guess though that everything changes over time.
The Christmas markets ...
