After 14 weeks of counting down the months, days, minutes, hours, and seconds I was finally reunited with Britty in Frankfurt. This 14 week period seemed to last forever! Each day at work was like extracting teeth, no actually extracting teeth was more fun (yes I had my wisdom teeth out during March).
When I stepped off the plane in Frankfurt, my heart was beating faster. The walk from the gate to Customs seemed to take forever (I guess it was about 600 or 700m). When I finally got there I saw a huge line, but then I realised it was for EU Nationals. The other line for non EU Nationals was very short. After getting through Customs I found my way to the baggage collection section.
After about 35 minutes standing around, watching, waiting and becoming a little impatient, my bag finally appeared in front of me! I collected it (all 28kgs of it), and then headed toward the door. The sliding door opened and I could see Britty!!! There she was, beautiful, smiling, and as gorgeous as ever! It was a surreal feeling when we hugged, it was like a dream, but better than a dream because it was real. One of the reasons for traveling to Germany is of course to travel, but the number one reason for me coming here is to be with my beautiful girlfriend!
While in Frankfurt we walked around the city, and saw some of the sites. Frankfurt is a nice city, quite large, with some beautiful old buildings, green parks, as well as some high rise buildings. The weather in Frankfurt for my arrival wasn’t too bad, but we did get a little rain.
I had a great weekend catching up with Britty, and seeing Frankfurt. Here are some of our photos.
After our 2 night stay in Frankfurt, we needed to drive to Kiel by 5pm Sunday so Britty could get to work. Britty had borrowed her Dad’s Audi for the trip down, and on the way back I got to drive on the “wrong” side of the road for the first time. At first it was strange, but I am getting use to it.
I also got my first taste of the German Autobahn. On the way back I managed to crack the 200km/hour mark in an unlimited zone. You can certainly get from A to B pretty quick on those roads!!!
Keep Well. Scott
