A Morning in Frankfurt

Getting away here in Germany is much harder as I don't have steady daycare, but the other morning I was able to get away and explore the city.  Months ago, I had read about the Chinese Garden located in Bethman Park.  This park is located on the east end of the city.  Sadly, the doors to the Chinese garden were closed. Why?  I don't know; however, I then went and explored an adjacent park along Eschenheimer Anlage then stumbled upon a cafe where I enjoyed hot cocoa and almond pastry. Later I enjoyed a yummy Greek salad at Hamburger Am Turm. The restaurant has been open for over 25 years and is one of those places that if you are hungry at 3 a.m. you can still get a bite to eat. It really was a lovely morning, and I had fun getting to know the city better. Thanks to my mother-in-law for watching the children for me.

That's what we call Me Time, and it's a must for everyone.
I like the fast food restaurant in the picture. It sells Falafel too, my favorite fast and street food.
Many happy returns of such a fine morning!

What a wonderful time out for you. The park looks beautiful (and not having the garden open gives you an extra good excuse for going back!). And I loved your snacks. I think we all need time for ourselves to BE our best selves and I'm glad you got a bit. Your Mother in Law sounds like a good person.
I love Chinese gardens, too. Let's enjoy the beauty of spring in nature.

Lovely to discover your blog and many thanks for visiting me.
Looks like you had a wonderful day out and the park looks gorgeous.
We have only stopped off at the airport at Frankfurt.
Happy weekend

What a charming place to visit. The red tulips are so pretty. My daughters love to travel as well, and my youngest visited Germany many years ago. She had a wonderful time. That dessert on here looks scrumptious, and the Greek salad caught my eye, as I'm part Greek myself.

Thank you for your visit to our blog.
