"VT Meeting with Kimi the Bear" Göppingen by Russell_the_Wombat

Göppingen Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 177 photos

My best friend on VT is Kimi the Bear. He lives far away on the opposite side of the globe, in Kiwiland.

However, the two of us finally had the chance to meet in person when Kimi and his Mama Kakapo2 visited their old home at the foot of the Swabian Alb, only two hours by train from our home.

More pictures of our meeting, which involved all in all four VT members, two humans and two animals, can be found on Kimi's Göppingen page! You will also find the Official Meeting Group Photo there.

We met in Göppingen, which is not far from where the Kiwis were staying, and started with a quick walk of the town and a coffee break.

Kimi and his Mama Sissi brought me gifts from my other best VT friend Wallywombat in Sydney. They had met her during a stopover on the way to Germany. Now isn't that sweet?

After the coffee we took the bus uphill to Hohenstaufen. From the village we hiked to the top of the steep mountain to enjoy the view and see what is left of the old Staufer castle.

    It looks like the two of you had a very full day, no wonder Kimi fell asleep on the bus. Great pictures of all the fun you had!
