Oct 1, 2010: Pete picked us up and drove us to the airport. How nice is that? I don't know if there is a nicer guy than Pete, but I know there are not many with his particular brand of appeal. Pleasure to be sent on our way with a hug and a kiss from him.
I guess we are intrepid or at least seasoned travellers because we breezed through the airport de rigueurs and multi-hour plane time and arrived in Frankfurt excited and exhilarated.
A few hours later we hopped the "See Frankfurt" bus and after a whirlwind tour of the city were impressed enough to know we would spend more than one night next time we pass through. In the morning we were stunned by the gorgeous Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof, Germany's busiest train station -- handling an astounding 350,000 passengers a day -- and with our first exposure to the renowned German efficiency and their amazing Deutsche Bahn.
