This region was first visited by Hector in 1976 with a day trip to   Heidelberg.  There was a short stay with not too distant relatives at Freiburg im Breisgau in 1980 during another Inter-Rail after my five months on Kibbutz Ashdot Ya’akov (Me’uchad), Israel.  In more recent times there have been three trips to the Cannstatter Wasen in Stuttgart.
