We made it to Germany! Aaaand we were reunited with our 2 early travellers….so farnow we feel complete with all 19 of us! Not much sleep was had on the overnight flight collectively between the group but we landed in Frankfurt ready to hit the streets. After some realizations that Carolyn’s life long dream of riding a double decker bus to tour the town was unattainable, we decided to hit the sights on foot. Turns out all bus tours have been cancelled because today is the big marathon in Frankfurt.
We headed downtown and found an old faithful spot on the patio to enjoy 19 schnitzels together for lunch. I am not sure how it happened because we seemed to leave our winnipeg character behind on our flight…in my opinion it is a beautiful day to enjoy lunch on the patio…clear skies, 12 degrees, and music ringing through the old streets while the marathon runners passed by. Apparently to the rest of the team it was WAY too cold out.
We hit the streets to see a few sights and made our visit to the beautiful St Bartholomew’s Cathedral. This is where we need to take an internet poll….was our fearless leader Carolyn (A) fervently praying for our team….or (B) was she giving in to her weakness and dozing in the House of the Lord?
Apparently she wasn’t the only one needing to rest in peace as a few others joined in 🙂
After a bit more walking we found an alternative to our double decker bus and boarded a boat to take a sunset cruise down the Main River. I think what it actually turned out to be a ticket to the snooze cruise…a warm cabin and the gentle purr of the motor was too much for most to resist.
We are now back at the airport and awaiting to board our flight to Johannesburg. We are grateful to have our entire team together and that nobody is stranded on top of a tower (not that that’s ever happened…AHEM Bryan & Cheryl) We are thankful to have had a great day together and now turning our minds and hearts to Swaziland. We pray for good sleeps on this overnight flight.
We will see you all on African soil 🙂
Good night from Germany!
