... as the rain really started. Later on a woman from a house nearby came and collected 6e for our overnight stay.
We were both glad to get an early night as we were both still suffering with heavy colds and hacking coughs.
We were both awake in the night and heard a lone plane droning overhead - and wondered if it was .......Richard Todd?!!
... pretty easy driving up towards Frankfurt, but because Steffie's parents have an old car, the windows have a tendency to fog up, unless you have the heaters on full blast. Nevertheless the Autobahn was relatively snow-free. We drove through Giessen and Marburg, where we got blitzed by a speed camera, the first of many along the way. It seemed like every single village had a permanent speed camera set up.

... around Kassel, mainly at the Christmas markets which are centred around the Grimm Brother's fairy tales. Really sweet markets with lots of stalls with wood chips on the ground and open fires to stand by. We were able to find a stall that made to order vegan pizza and one that sold vegan pumpkin soup!!! There was also a massive vegan stall with pestos, cakes, pates etc etc!!!! Each time we go somewhere we're surprised to see more and more vegan options!!!
It is warm and sunny, but, autumn is definitely here, as can be seen from the colours of the leaves on the trees.
... France and Cynthia), who are now living in the UK, but, spend most of their time roaming Europe in a Campervan. France is of Dutch extraction, but went to New Zealand as a baby, with his parents. He thus has the luxury(?) of New Zealand, Dutch and EU citizenship.
A very pleasant evening, drinking red wine and comparing notes on the places we have visited.
