Show trip route
We left Kolbach (the place where we slept over last night in Austria) around 8:30am. From then on it was pretty much all just Freeways and more Freeways all the way to Frankfurt. There was no more scenic roads and hence fewer pictures. (We think that we've provided enough photos from this holiday :-) )
Most of the way to Frankfurt it rained but once we arrived there it was overcast but no rain. It was quite a difference in temperatures from southern parts of Europe - Germany had tops of 19-20 degrees Celsius today. Just a "small" difference from 37 degrees in Milano. I guess we needed a gradual temperature change to acclimatise to Canberra temperatures. ;-)
We arrived in Frankfurt around 1:30pm and after leaving Roxy's parents luggage at the place they were staying we went out to Frankfurt city for a late lunch/dinner
And as you all know, when girls are around the shops they can't just leave them alone... So Roxy and her mum had "good time". And us guys, well we tried to keep ourselves amused by electronics and when we finished all our stuff we came back and guess what... girls were still in the same spot!!! Some things a guy will never understand I guess... :-) What Vlad "forgot" to say is that before we went to Frankfurt we went to one of our friends who owns a suits factory and he bought "stuff" for more than 500AUD. So girls are looking and guys are buying... (Roxy's insertion)
Around 9:30pm we arrived at the airport. Frankfurt airport in nicer that the London Heathrow. And as you all know we have none of our plane tickets confirmed until the last second. Well when we came to ask for tickets they said there were another 21 staff listed on the same flight!!! It was looking tight even without the 21 staff. But we were fortunate enough to get a place on the plane and we are flying to Singapore.
From Singapore we fly to Brisbane where we arrive on Friday morning. Finally, we fly to Canberra on Sunday... What a trip!!! :-)
