A Very German Layover
Updated: Jul 21, 2020
On our way from Portugal to Lebanon, we intentionally planned a long layover in Frankfurt.
We arrived early on a Sunday morning and had 7 hours to go exploring. It was sunny and very peaceful, almost too peaceful. What we hadn't anticipated was the endless rows of closed stores since it was a Sunday. More than slightly disappointed, Talal and I wandered around town. We walked around for hours looking for a spot to eat that looked just right. Eventually we stumbled upon a large crown in a hidden square. Talal chose our dining spot and managed to snag the only outdoor table. The over-worked staff was not enjoying the heavy traffic, but we were in no rush and took our time at the table.
A beer for him. An apfelwein for me. We ordered a quintessential German meal - sausages and mustard - before walking it off and heading to the airport. And let's not forget the magnet that now lives on our fridge to remind us of this German layover.
