Exploring Frankfurt and A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That
Hi! How are you? Hope your week is going well! We have a busy week this week. My husband got home on Saturday and everyone was so thrilled to see him. This week we have 3 school open houses and I am going away with my church group on Friday to Freibourg. I am so excited. Haven't really been away from the children more than a couple of hours since we arrived. Don't get me wrong, I adore my gang, but I am looking forward to getting to know some of the woman at my church, to see a new city, and to have some time away where I don't have anyone demanding anything from me. I was going through my photos on my phone and I realized that I had a bunch of miscellaneous photos that I haven't posted. I will start with our day in Frankfurt. Only 40 km from where we are living, Frankfurt is the largest city in the state of Hesse and is the home to Goethe, A very busy airport, and is the largest financial district on the continent. Somethings I have learned about the city since living here is that 1 in 3 of it's inhabitants don't hold a German passport, making the city very diverse. Sadly, much of Frankfurt was destroyed during the war, but if you look you can still find some old world charm. Often overlooked as a travel destination the city has much to offer as we are discovering. On our day in Frankfurt, we took a Hop on Hop of Tour with Greyline also known as a double decker bus tour because I wanted to really get a good overview of the city. We did not choose to get off on any of the stops as I knew we would have many more opportunities to come in and explore the city, so the tour took us a little over an hour. Afterwards, we did some shopping and headed home. I can't wait to go back one morning while the children are in school and go to the art museum.
