Just a little over a month ago now C and I went on a whistle stop tour of Germany for a wedding, travelling on Friday June 13th threw up many interesting challenges, not least getting lost in a Bavarian forest! We arrived unscathed and had a wonderful weekend helping our friends celebrate tying the knot. We had allowed for an extra day in Germany so we could make the most of having a long weekend break and so we could have a cheeky explore, We headed to frankfurt for a night and a day, here’s how we spent our day in Frankfurt…
7.45: The view from our hotel room
9.05: We brave the Frankfurt underground, which had let us down just a few days previously!
10.14 Breakfast at the delightful Zeit Für Brot. I opted for an apple and cinnamon roll. Simply amazing
11.37: We take a stroll down the River Main in the sunshine
12.05: We go in search of some culture and decide to hit some museums and in the process learn a new german phrase ‘Montags geschlossen’ = closed on Mondays, fairly obvious in hindsight!
2.10: Refreshments in the form of home-made lemonade. I opt for lemon and rosemary which is absolutely delicious
4.25: or two!
6.45: We finally track down a restaurant that sells frankfurters (Harder than you would expect in Frankfurt!) So dinner is traditional German sausages and sauerkraut! I only manage abut half of this dish, it was incredibly tasty if more than a little touristy!
8.15: Just time for a glass of wine and a catch up with Gatsby whilst we wait for our flight to be called
On a sad note, this was the last outing for the sony a37 and 50mm lens, they have left me, goodbye old friends
