SAP HQ is in Walldorf, about 4 kilometers from the village I live in which means we get a lot of tourists wondering around. The other day I was on main street of the town I live in with my neighbor and there were a couple of Englishmen walking along the sidewalk.

We lived in the same area from 2000-2005. We rented an old farm row house in the Rot side of St. Leon-Rot. I loved those two little villages. Summer was filled with walking and riding bikes through the farm fields between St. Leon-Rot and Waldorf. You can ride your bike all the way to downtown Heidleberg from there all on bike trails. We had a great ice cream shop on the St. Leon side that we frequented in the summer.

What is interesting is how quickly people get used to taking where we live for granted. People spend a lot of money to visit villages like the one I live in and I try to be appreciative of what I have and where I live. It's fun to see tourists ooing and awwing over stuff I drive by every day though. lol

We have a version of that here in Alaska during the summer. I see moose, bald eagles, and even bears quite a bit. For me it's a normal thing, but for a tourist it is a once in life time adventure. My only gripe is that some of them don't realize that moose and bear might look cuter, but the are still wild animals and one needs to remain at a very safe distance.
