    Frankfurt Layover

    July 31, 2017 in Germany

    We arrived at 6 am local time, after a flight with screaming children. Needless to say, Jason wasn’t impressed. Then the security check saga began. Although only in transit, we needed to go through a security check, including a full body scan and a physical body search and then through customs, who grilled us on every detail of our trip.

    Finally on board, we were mistaken for Germans by the German hostess. The mistake was probably ordering our drinks in German.

    Ricky: “Wasser, bitte”.

    Hostess replied with a whole lot of German and Ricky had to admit that his German was limited to Grade 8 German.

    Hostess: ”But there wasn’t an accent so I thought you were German. And you look German.”

    Grade 8 German obviously paid off.

    Every holiday, people seem to think we are German. Last year, it was a Kyrgyz soccer player at Bangkok airport.At least, we weren’t mistaken for twins, which we got everywhere in India.

    Now to complete the final leg to Europe.Amsterdam here we come!

    Germany, Frankfurt

    July 24, 2017 in Germany

    Germany 24-26 July.
    Arrived in Frankfurt at 6.30am. Still tired. Weather matches my mood...wet and Miserable! After all the nice friendly people in Singapore this place is the exact opposite! Cold,dull, not friendly. Train system not as user friendly either. Nice friendly staff at the hotel has made up for it...thank heavens!

    Markets, Brezels and Meandering

    September 15, 2017 in Germany

    Walked around Frankfurt today and it was lovely. Ate good food, looked at shops, stumbled through German conversations, and generally had fun.

    Had lots of brezel. Delicious. Really wishing we could find a good brezel back home now. Suggestions welcome. Currywurst was also good. As was Bratwurst. Saw a few markets including the Kleinmarkthalle - very pretty.

    Found a board game place (typical us). The owner spoke perfect English and was super helpful. Was going to buy a game for travelling called Teubseeabenteuer (Deep sea adventure), but at the checkout saw these cute and tiny games so got 3 (they were cheap as) and take up less space than a pack of cards together. Will let you know how they go.

    Saw the really nice mall building the Zeil. Crazy glass design and longest elevator in Europe which we'll have to try. Also had ice cream rolls - they pour cream and the flavourings onto an open air freezer thing and chop it all up, spread it out flat then roll it up. It's kinda like watching someone make a crepe but different. And tastes good too.

    Got phone sorted so if you want our Europe number let us know. Ordering in some Italian for dinner so hopefully it arrives soon. Ciao!

    Frankfurt, Germany

    September 23, 2014 in Germany

    Buildings new and old? Few old buildings here and from the look of them I got the idea they weren't really old but more likely heavily renovated or reproductions. In fact given the picture below from 1945 I doubt you could even have found a splinter to use rebuild after that devastation. The cathedral looks intact but if you look close it's a skeleton just held up better to the bombs.

    Ein gutes neues Jahr

    January 1 in Germany

    Man, wo ist dieses 2017 hin? Ich hab das irgendwie gar nicht so richtig kennengelernt, da stand ich gestern schon vor einer Badewanne mit Bierflaschen.
    Mitten im guten alten Frankfurt gings dann auch schon los, drei ganze Bier für jedes Jahrzehnt. So alt bin ich in diesem 2017 geworden.
    Und doch gibt es ein paar Erinnerungen, gute und schlechte...es war wieder ein Jahr der auf und abs, ein bisschen wie Rafting, aber ohne Paddel. Bin sogar einmal aus dem Boot gefallen und hab lange gebraucht wieder rein zu kommen. Aber da bin ich, mit zwei meiner besten Freunde und einen Bier. Mehr braucht kein Mensch.
    Vielleicht ab und zu Mal noch ein bisschen Reisen. Ein Berg, eine Stadt, ein bisschen Rafting und vielleicht auch Mal ne Party.

    Also, Vorsatz nächstes Jahr...ein paar kleine Trips das ganze Jahr über zu machen. Vielleicht vier oder fünf. Und heut Abend fangen wir, der neue Norman, der jetzt Deuter heißt, mit Wien an. Ab zum Bus...
