Sep 4, 2019 - Auf Wiedersehen, Deutschland

We had decided to meet for breakfast at 0845 so that we could get some rest and still have the car ready for return at our scheduled time of 1030. The breakfast in the Tommasi Hotel was good and consistent with what we had enjoyed for the past three weeks. I think we were all in the "let's get this on the road" mood, as we were out the door with our luggage and ready to depart ahead of schedule. Let me me make a few comments about the Hotel Tommasi here. The staff is really good about helping, to include moving heavy luggage out to the car....

Sep 3, 2019 - Last day in Germany

The next morning, I was up and dressed well before the time we agreed to meet for breakfast, so I took a walk into the small village (about 500 full-time residents??) The air was cool and I should have had on a sweater or something, but it felt good after the hot weather we had experienced. I took some photos of the village, which is mostly hotels and restaurants, and rejoined the ladies for breakfast. After that, we were on our way for the day. Our first stop was in Cochem, a fairly major tourist attraction on the lower Moselle River. We...

Jun 25, 2019 - Day 42 - Frankfurt

Day 42 - Tuesday 25 June 19 - Frankfurt. I have decided to rename Wurzburg, Cashburg; it is the only town where the majority of cafes want payment in cash and will not accept the card. Frustrating when you are trying to run down your cash holdings without drawing more. Otherwise a lovely city which we have thoroughly enjoyed. I quote from a cushion cover “ Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you rich” ; a new belief for us. Our final leg of 113km to Frankfurt completes the 4070 km journey that we have undertaken in the past 41...

Jun 12, 2019 - On our way

Tuesday-Wednesday, June 11-12 Our flight from JFK was on a BIG plane. We were in row 93 out of 94, the plane was a double decker, and the seating was VERY TIGHT. :-( The flight was listed as 8 hours. Dinner was served a while after takeoff. After dinner, I took a little nap, but then they started serving breakfast before landing. We landed at Frankfurt at 6 am local time (midnight EDT). Larry had spent the whole flight reading -- and trying out his new noise-cancelling headphones. Now he was getting sleepy. Deplaning took a long time,...

Sep 22, 2018 - Frankfurt

We arrived in Frankfurt on Friday morning; we are finding that jet lag does us in these days so we try to schedule ourselves with a bit of down time so we can restore our groggy brains to functioning mode. After a nap, we headed out to check out the city; then on Saturday we took a walking tour. Our guide was an American who has lived in Frankfurt for the last 16 years. Not only is he American, he also lived in Tacoma for quite a while. We followed him around the city for about four hours and learned a lot. Frankfurt was pretty much leveled...

2018 Adventures

Aug 10, 2018 - Up to date for Friday

Dear all, How things change. I am writing this in real time. We left the hotel Thursday morning arriving at the airport in Budapest with a couple of hours to spare before our flight to Amsterdam via Frankfurt. Due to severe storms in Frankfurt our plane was 1 1/2 hours late leaving Budapest. As we approached Frankfurt it was announced that we were in a holding pattern because of the number of planes effected by the weather and now wanting to land. By this time we had missed our connection to Amsterdam but when we landed we found out that...

Our Big Trip

Sep 9, 2017 - Our least favourite place so far... Frankfurt

We arrived in Frankfurt after a short bus journey from Cologne. Our first impressions were not exactly great. The area around train stations typically are not know for their scenary, but this one was on another level. Perhaps it's coming back from Asia where everywhere feels safe or perhaps it's just the area where we arrived but it was not a great start. The next morning we visited some of the nicer parts of Frankfurt including the Romer area which includes the old town. The buildings were nice, however we are expecting to see better when...

Jun 16, 2017 - Day 1 Europe 2017 - Frankfurt

Our flight was scheduled to leave Melbourne on time. At the last minute one of the passengers decided to not fly anymore. We had to sit and wait for 30 mins while they removed her bags. The rest of the flight to Dubai was pretty uneventful, I managed to get some sleep. When we arrived in Dubai, it was 6.30 in the morning and already 36 degrees. The second we landed you could feel the heat. I'm not sure what was happening, but we seemed to be waiting on the plane to disembark for about 20 mins. Once we got off the plane we had to get buses...

Europe 2017

Jun 10, 2016 - Gothenburg to Frankfurt

Friday June 10 We were up before the wake-up call and ready for our breakfast which the hotel starts serving at 4:30 (lots of flight crews). We ate a quick breakfast and then took the hotel complementary shuttle over to the terminal -- nice to have because it had rained overnight. The terminal was very, very crowded. We used the electronic kiosk to (fairly quickly) check in and obtain boarding passes for both the Gothenburg to Frankfurt and the Frankfurt to Ottawa flights, but there was no option to print any baggage tags. We had to wait...

May 17, 2016 - A short time at Frankfurt airport

Tuesday May 17 We arrived at the Frankfurt airport 30 minutes late and had to rush from our Air Canada 787-9 ‘Dreamliner’ (nice new plane) to a bus on the ramp, then to passport control, then rush back onto the bus to be taken to our Lufthansa plane waiting for us on the other side of the airport. The plane departed several minutes late en route to Gothenburg.

May 7, 2016 - Crete, Greece

Meet my little friends.... I always wanted to try the fish foot bath and now I have. The bucket list just got another check mark! It was kinda freaky at first but actually nice after you got used to them. Crete is a lovely city filled with so many little cafes, shops and museums and sites. It is one of my favorites so far for its beauty and quaintness. The food is devine and the shopping is not bad as we have hit the mid-season sales. Jamie took about 500 pictures at the museum today - he looks like a tourist alright! I am surprised at how...
