Day 1: Frankfurt, Germany

Best of Germany


View European Surprise 2015 on Kris and Kayla's travel map.

This was the first day of our tour. We flew into Frankfurt from Copenhagen, after our lengthy goodbyes to Kris' family. We missed our transfers, so we thought, and decided to taxi into our hotel in Offenbach. We arrived safely, checked in and napped before our tour officially started at 4pm.

We were very excited for the beginning of our tour, but were starving, so grabbed a small something and a drink before it began.

We met everyone in the foyer and we see that we are the youngest by far - the oldies didn't seem to like us much to begin with.

We explored Frankfurt that afternoon and had some free time to explore it by ourselves. Frankfurt is really pretty and much different to what we thought. We saw the famous buildings, churches and memorial sites.

In the main city area is a huge Catholic Church with a tower that you can go up. Being the crazy people that we are, we decided to walk up the 320 steps to get to the top. Walking up the steps almost killed us, but was worth it with the views, they were amazing! I was impressed with Kris' efforts up there, because we were VERY high!!

After returning to the bus, we went back to the hotel for a welcome dinner. We met some nice people on our tour, and the 'oldies' seemed to warm to us. After dinner, Kris and I decided to go to the bar for a drink to end our fun-filled day.

Next up, Cologne.
