      Frankfurt Flughafen

      February 6 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

      .... und wir haben uns gefunden

      Kleiner Tipp für alle, denen am Flughafen langweilig ist:
      Einfach mal mit dem gesamten Gepäck in den Sicherheitsbereich gehen um dann kurz vor Flugstart zu merken, dass man sein Gepäck noch nicht aufgegeben hat. 😂

      Also komplett wieder auschecken...... laufen was das Zeug hält... einchecken und dann wieder quer durch den Flughafen zum ✈️.

      Workout von 10.000 Schritten 😄.... Entweder waren die Rucksäcke zu leicht oder man verquatscht sich halt, wenn man sich ewig nicht gesehen hat 💃💃

      Wohlverdiente Entspannung und Menuwahl

      May 15, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

      Nachdem ich die Jacke in der Lounge liegen liess und nochmals aus dem Flieger musste, nehmen wir einen Entspannungsdrink. (Paul hatte seinen bereits runtergestürzt als ich zurück war - keine Ahnung warum😊). Die Crew kennt mich also bereits….Read more

      Flughafen Frankfurt

      August 20, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

      Abflug um 11:20 mit einer kleinen Verspätung😐

      Das erste Essen des Flugs waren Nudeln mit Hühnchen, die waren lecker, das zweite eher nicht so🥲Read more

      December 12, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

      ...parkplac na "travniku"... to je to, ko priletiš z majhnim avionom na veliko pristanišče. Rabiš vsaj uro in pol med letoma, da ni tekanja po hodnikih.

      Čakamo še na bus, kamor bojo strpali vse potnike in nas prepeljali tistih 100 metrov do kamorkoli-pač-že.Read more

    • Day 8

      Onward to Munich

      December 16, 2023 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 4 °C

      On our last full day in Mosel we spent the morning reading and at the spa. A nice slow start just like we like it. The spa at this hotel was amazing with 3 dry saunas at different temps, a steam room, and an infrared sauna.

      I think we could have stayed all day had the need for food not promoted us to go explore. We drove out to a cute church on the hill for some nice Mosel area views followed by lunch in town. Igor had a meat & potato soup and lake pike, I had the recently caught boar ragu. And of course some local wine pairing to go alongside.

      This morning we got up early in time to meet our other half of our vacation crew, Ams and Cha, at the Frankfurt airport!

      Es geht los....

      March 23 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

      ...über Helsinki nach Bangkok!

      Wir starten wieder vom Flughafen Frankfurt. Entgegen unserer Befürchtung, dass zum Ferienstart hier überall massenhaft Leute unterwegs sind und wir ständig und überall Schlange stehen müssen, waren wir überrascht wie schnell es dann ging.
      Prima... wir starten also ziemlich entspannt in Richtung Thailand.

      May 10 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Hello, schön, dass du mich und Stephan auf unserer Reise nach Thailand begleitest. Für mich ist das der erste Langstreckenflug mit - alleine! Um halb 6 Uhr früh lag ich schon wie eine Eule hellwach im Bett. Wer mich kennt, weiß ganz genau das mir Fliegen nicht soo liegt. Glücklicherweise verlief alles bisher gut. Die Bahn war pünktlich und ich hatte genügend Zeit am Frankfurter Flughafen. Um 17:15 Uhr ist Abflug. Ich lande erstmal in Doha und dann geht’s weiter nach Bangkok. Stephan und ich treffen uns dort und fliegen zusammen nach Phuket :) nach drei langen Wochen sehe ich endlich meinen Stephan wieder <3
      Update: Nach langem rumfahren haben wir es endlich ins Hotel geschafft. Der Hunger war groß, deshalb sind wir gleich los. Ich hatte ein leckeres Cashew Curry und dazu eine leckere Kokosmilch.
      Jetzt sind wir aber auch platt und sagen - gute Nacht 🌙

    • Day 2


      June 14, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Landed at 9 A.M. Germany time (2 A.M. Abbie’s-body-time). First thoughts: everything here is much greener and much quieter. Also plane food is not as bad as stand-up comics say it is.

      We drove 2 hours to Spangdahlem to meet up with our sixth vacation-squad member. Everyone was very happy and smiley and pretending like it hadn’t been almost 24 hours since we’d last slept.

      Our hotel is in a close-by town called Dudledorf (lol I know) and it’s the cutest little town. If you asked someone to imagine a town called Dudledorf, they’d imagine this. We ate dinner a cute little bistro just a short walk from the hotel. Not the most eventful day but I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight.

      Paris to Frankfurt

      June 21, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 59 °F

      Leaving Paris, almost an hour, looking for gas with the fuel light on and construction everywhere. Very exciting adventure. However, we finally left the Seine, Found a gas station, ate at KFC (Pepsi was marvelous as most soda is Coke) and was on the road.
      3 countries today; France, Luxembourg and Germany.
      More to write later. Turning off the light for an early flight.

    • Day 9


      June 21, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

      This was not the happiest day for us. We began our drive out of Paris back towards Germany to drop Adam off. It was about a 7 hour drive back to his base, which included some ridiculous traffic leaving Paris. The quickest route was the most direct, which was east down the Champs-Elysees and continuing down the Seine until we were in the countryside. We pulled over for gas and adblue. The van we rented was a diesel and required an additive called adblue. Apparently, newer diesels use adblue to improve emissions. The problem here is that we did not know that originally. We were not too far out of Frankfurt on our first day, when a notification kept popping up on the dash, saying that adblue needed to be added within so many miles or the van would stop running. So imagine us, in a small german town, trying to ask people who don't speak English about adblue. Bob did recall that a neighbor of his spoke about it with thier diesel and he finally figured it out.
      Their was a KFC attached to the gas station so that is what we ate. From there it was a nice drive. We cut through Luxembourg, making it the 4th country we visited. In order: Germany, Belgium, France, and Luxembourg and back to Germany.
      I enjoyed the drive through Germany the most as it has more hills and trees to wind through. This is compared to northern France where the terrain is more flat farm land. This part of Germany has plenty of vineyards. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of the rows of grapes that are planted in neat rows up and down the steep hillsides.
      We arrived back at at Adam's base at 5PM. We took a couple of last minute pictures and then hugs all around. Adam does not like long goodbyes. Partly because Michelle can't do it without crying and partly because I might too. Abbie won't admit it but...
      It was great getting to spend time as a family in a new setting. Hopefully we will get to see him in October. He has ideas on coming home then.
      We arrived at the Meninger hotel in Frankfurt about 7. It was right near the airport entrance. They had a limited number of items on a menu but we decided to eat there anyway. We ordered a bacon and onion, super thin crust pizza. Michelle didn't like it at all, but I didn't think it was too bad and ate nearly all of it. The best part was that I had a drink with four ice cubes in it. Actually, it had three, but I switched with Abbie when she wasn't looking. Not having ice wasn't all that bad. It's just that you never take a drink that's really cold. It may be cool, just not that deep cold that I like.
      Our hotel room was small with 3 twin beds and no carpet. It reminded me of camp or a dorm room. It had a shower just like the other german hotel we spent the night in. It was square and about 3 ft wide on each side. It had two sliding doors that meet in one corner. When opened, it was just wide enough to get in and out of. It had a great shower head though and hot water.
      The french showers appear to prefer a different style. Only one of the three hotels had a full tub, but all three had a glass door that went about a third of the way down, causing water to spill out onto the floor if you were careful and absolutely flooding it if you werent.
      The bed wasn't comfortable but I rested fairly well anyway.
