Los geht es au die letzte Etappe unserer Tour. Bei noch aushaltbaren Temperaturen geht es los. Es sollen wieder Mitte 30°C werden mit Gewitter am Nachmittag. Unser Ziel ist es bis dahin in Mannheim zu sein.
A travel day: We left out lovely Parador behind at abut 10am, aiming to allow ourselves plenty of time to drop the Sixt hire car off at Madrid Airport by 12pm. Madrid Airport is very large, so we drive around a little more than we needed to to locate terminal 4 and the hire car drop off point - and the GPS was not always as accurate as it needed to be (so Annette at one stage reversed back down the autobahn in a move that was a little hazardous!). Still, we found ourselves with an easy checkin and a few hours to kill writing postcards, and eating very ordinary overpriced airport food. Going through customs was a little odd...no signs that you could not take fluids through BUT...then you are told once in a long queue that you can't...but without a disposal point, you either have to exit and return...or drink, drink, drink. We choose the drinking option...but suffered the consequences over the next hour!!!! The Iberia Airways flight was good, but we had difficulty with the Buchbinder hire car at Frankfurt. It seems that the booked price on the net is not the actual price and that the emailed terms are not the actual terms, so we were 'forced' to accept insurance we did not need/want at an increased cost - or after several hours of travelling look elsewhere. Annette's calmer head prevailed and we continued with the hire and got to our airport hotel (Motel One Frankfurt Airport) after a short drive of about 10 minutes, feeling frazzled! The day ended on a good note when we walked to a nearby India Curry House (www.indiancurryhouse.org) for surprisingly good and different vegetarian food and and pleasant/amuasing service from a cheeky young Indian (Italian) waiter.Read more
