I woke up on Sunday morning and decided I wanted to visit a castle. Fortunately living in Germany, it’s not that difficult to turn this thought into a reality. What did surprise me though was that we found one only 6km from our apartment.

Stuttgart, Germany is home to the world’s largest pig museum featuring over 40,000 pigs in 28 theme rooms. Despite this, the Pig Museum is not well known but is an entertaining way to spend an hour or so.

I feel very fortunate to be an expat living in Stuttgart, where there are several clubs for expats, making it easy to meet other expats living in Stuttgart and Germans interested in meeting expats. I’m actually in awe of how much easier it is now compared to 10 years ago when I lived in S.
