Ilona and Derek Take The World - Part 2

While Stuttgart, Germany might not be the first town that comes to mind as a top tourist destination in Central Europe, this home to the Porsche Museum is where our story begins. Well, it really begins in Krakow, Poland where our protagonist, Ilona was born and raised alongside a very close childhood friend and her brother, Derek. Around 1994, Derek moved to the United States and in 2000, Ilona made a trip to the US to visit her friend and as luck has it, Derek. There, in New York City, Derek and Ilona hit it off well enough to classify this visit as a summer romance. In 2002 the same summer romance occurred when Ilona and Derek found themselves spending the summer together. After years of this, we finally find ourselves in 2010 in Stuttgart where our love birds decide to have their first official date. Germany was the perfect place to meet because Ilona’s work was there at the time, and Derek is always up for a visit to one of his favorite countries.
