Frankfurt  
Our final flight to Dublin has been delayed (well, cancelled & we'll be on another), so we unexpectedly have 12 hours in Frankfurt (in the day time). Any suggestions what to do with them? I've never been to Germany at all.

Ooo don't tempt me! My resistance will be low after all that flying. Though luggage restrictions should help. Hmm... I wonder will we be able to check our luggage all the way through from Singapore, or is 12 hours too long? We're having a lot of waiting around on the trip back - 12 hours in Sydney, 24 in Singapore (by choice) and 12 hours in Frankfurt.

Great! Don't really want to be carrying it around all day.

Hoping there's luggage storage in Singapore airport too. While I will want access, we won't need most of it.

Brilliant! Thank you!

Re meeting - it probably depends on how tired we are. There again, maybe meeting for coffee/lunch would be easier on us than sight seeing :-) It'll be a weekday (Friday 1st), so you probably can't meet for longer than that anyway. Would it be ok if I contacted you closer to the date?

Ah. I didn't know if it would be for you too. Ours is the 4th, because it's the first Monday in May. It means nuteile will have three days to recover from the holiday before going back to work :-)

Hurrah! I would not be able to go that long without eating!

Noting for myself, tourist information is open from 10:00-16:00 on public holidays.

I think I would have like to have seen Frankfurt pre-1944.

Sounds beautiful!

@Skyring's suggestion: Take @elhamisabel for icecream in the Romer, lunch on a riverboat, chocshopping and bookbrowsing. I love Frankfurt. And Elham...

I could bring that book I promised you over a year ago. It's a small one, so not a problem to stick in the luggage.

I'm the one that should be ashamed - I haven't sent it!
It's a German book with something about Ireland in the title.

From unblinkered: Try Ebbelwoi/Apfelwein or Apfelschorle, and savoury onion pizzas.

I think Apfelwein was my favorite part of Frankfurt. Well, and all the sausages. I do love sausage. (TWSS)
a very caring potatomollydot on April 8th, 2009 08:56 am (UTC)
Perhaps nuteile and I can have sausage together...
Blinkunblinkered on April 7th, 2009 10:05 pm (UTC)
To be fair, Apfelschorle is my own personal craving rather than a must-have delicacy....mineral water is different over here, so it never tastes right. Ebbelwoi, on the other hand... ;)
a very caring potatomollydot on April 8th, 2009 08:57 am (UTC)
If mineral water is different, perhaps it's something I should add to the list itself :-)

Cool, thanks.

BTW, I've discussed it with nuteile, and we would like to meet if you're on for it - don't want to interfere with any long weekend plans you may be thinking of.

Cool! Hopefully see you then, then! We shall communicate from NZ to pin it down more :-)
