Onward to Germany and Switzerland! I am with my BFF Dolores for our next annual adventure.
But this time I get a treat and fly first class to Frankfurt. The word “spoiled” now takes on a new meaning. Immediately upon sitting in my wide comfortable seat, I am asked what wine selection I would prefer! And dinner is served! -seafood, rice, collard greens, bread, ice cream, the list goes on. I am too full and too tired to talk.
However, I do sleep a bit and before I know it, we are in Frankfurt on bus number 61 platform 16 outside the terminal. It’s a pretty quick 45 minute ride and then a short walk to our hotel Maingau.
We are given a good map and directions by a passerby. Voila, we arrive! Since we are unable to check into our hotel, we stroll the cobblestone streets instead, admiring the churches and numerous beer gardens and pubs. We find a supermarket café and enjoy a sandwich and a cappuccino.
After crossing the “Main” (river), we find a cool square with lots of pubs and churches. (Dom Romer)- so much to see!
Later in the day we have dinner in Klaane Sachsehauser ( Old Town) at Dauth Schneider. I am loving the homemade noodles with salad and asparagus soup. Dolores opts for spareribs and sauerkraut. Frankfurt rocks!.
To wrap up the day, we have a nightcap nearby and enjoy chatting with the bartender who speaks nine languages. He is only about 22 years old..How does a person know 9 languages at such a young age? Impressive.
Soon enough it’s time for bed! More streets to walk tomorrow.
