Frankfurt am Main | Winter Germany

I never feel tired every time whenever I come back to the Euro Symbol. Sitting on the chair in the small park to enjoy the sunshine especially in such a cold weather for almost 1 hour. Doing nothing but watching people coming and going in front of me.

明明早晨是-5度寒冷的天氣,卻在法蘭克福中央車站的星巴克買了一杯裝了好多冰塊的焦糖拿鐵,呈現一幅不協調的畫面,從中央車站慢慢地步行前往歐元塔,在公園內的長椅上坐著享受著這寒冬中難得的暖陽。

 

 

 

Intercontinental Frankfurt

 

 

It’s time to fly to Frankfurt again. I try my best to come back to Europe almost every month, Frankfurt or Vienna, in order not to forget my German language ability easily. Can you imagine it was -5°C in the morning as we arrived at the hotel at around 7:30 am? Instead of taking a shower immediately, I Looked at the amazing orange sunrise changed slowly through the window for a while.

這次的法蘭克福的活動範圍只有熱鬧的市中心,礙於現在飛德國停留的時間只有24小時,我現在反而喜歡這樣簡單的模式,不用在短時間內特別拼了命跑去很遠的地方探索新景點,而是讓自己在飯店內休息充足之後,再買杯咖啡一個人悠閒地散步逛街。

Back to Frankfurt in 24 Hrs | Germany

 

 

It’s amazing I could come back to Frankfurt again in one month. Even though Frankfurt is not my favourite city in Germany, but I felt so appreciated to fly to any destinations in Europe almost every month to breath the fresh air and eat the wonderful breakfast buffet in the fancy hotel. The most important is, I can practice my German language ability as possible as I could.

Either Taking a hot shower or taking a bath is the best thing when you stay in the hotel room especially in the freezing cold weather. Do you like to take a bath to relax yourself after a long time work? I love these @dresdner_essenz packages from @mein_rossmannand one of each only costs only under 1 euro. Japanese Cherry Blossom is my favourite flavour.

In addition, I love the atmosphere as well whenever the sunshine comes into the room in Intercontinental through the windows to give me more positive energies. This time, I preferred not to go far away from Frankfurt but just walked around in the Park behind the hotel along the river Main first. Standing on one of the bridges over the river Main to look at such a stunning view and taking photos under the comfortable sunshine were the lovely moment in such a quiet weekend morning.

很不可思議,才不到一個月的時間,我又來到了法蘭克福,儘管這不是我在德國最愛的城市,只要每個月能到歐洲呼吸一些新鮮的空氣,享受豐盛的飯店早餐是支撐這份工作最大的動力來源。

這次我沒有太多的想法,到底是要聽身體的聲音待在市區就好,還是去附近的美因茲小鎮走一走呢?腦袋裡一直盤旋著這兩個想法,總之,先趁早晨有短暫的陽光,先到飯店後面的梅茵河散散步再說吧!出了太陽的安靜早晨,當地人都在慢跑運動,只有我捨不得睡覺跑來拍照。

 

梅茵河 Main

 

 

There are famous bridges cross the river such as Alte Brücke which means the oldest bridge in Frankfurt since middle age and the across the river are those popular museums. During this time, I encountered one of my colleagues in this flight and he made fun of me saying if I was doing the shooting in order to submit the article to the National Geography Magazine? Of course not, I said.

Well, I finally made a decision to take the S-Bahn 8 from the main station to Mainz in the afternoon. I would like to visit the Dom in the old town which is one of the famous Cathedrals in Germany. When I arrived in the Main Train Station, the sun was gone and it’s getting dark and cold. I decided to visit here next time in a sunny day.

Bis nächstes Mal!

 

梅茵河,貫穿法蘭克福的主要河流,梅茵河上橫跨了不少橋墩,其中最著名的莫過於法蘭克福老橋 (Alte Brücke)完工於1926年,是法蘭克福歷史最悠久的橋樑,歷史可以追溯至中世紀,梅茵河畔的對岸則是博物館區。

老實說,飛了這麼多次法蘭克福,這是我第一次認真漫步在河濱公園這一帶,剛好遇到一早也不睡的大哥經過,看我拿著相機拍河岸,他開玩笑問我是要參加國家地理雜誌海選嗎?我又不是拿高階單眼,當然不是啊!

最喜歡陽光照進房間的感覺,而這些在Rossman購入具有舒緩壓力的花香泡澡粉,一包才1歐元多左右,總是讓人忍不住泡在浴缸裡享受這得來不易的個人時光。

下午搭乘8號電車前往美茵茲(麥茲)時天色還是亮的,孰不知,抵達目的地已經下午4點,再晚一點可能天空會頓時一片漆黑,只好停止搭巴士前往市中心看大教堂的行程,馬上返回法蘭克福,買份晚餐回飯店休息。期待下一次再飛法蘭克福,前往美茵茲一探究竟。

Euro Symbol

Due to the short stay for only 24 hours in Frankfurt, I try to get used to this kind of style not going out far away to other cities but staying comfortable in Frankfurt to be a truly city explorer. After taking the shower and taking a nap, I put on my favourite new fake fur jacket from ZARA and then bought an cup of caramel ice latte from Starbucks walking from Central Station toward the Eurotower.  Why I bought ice latte not hot latte? I wondered why as well.

I never feel tired every time whenever I come back to the Euro Symbol. Sitting on the chair in the small park to enjoy the sunshine especially in such a cold weather for almost 1 hour. Doing nothing but watching people coming and going in front of me. Before leaving this place, I didn’t forget to take the picture like a tourist for sure.

明明早晨是-5度寒冷的天氣,卻在法蘭克福中央車站的星巴克買了一杯裝了好多冰塊的焦糖拿鐵,呈現一幅不協調的畫面,我現在也忘記為何當時不點杯熱拿鐵呢?從中央車站慢慢地步行前往歐元塔,在公園內的長椅上坐著享受著這寒冬中難得的暖陽,當然離開前也不免俗地再當個十足的觀光客和著偌大的歐元標誌來張合影,才心滿意足地前往下一個目的地。

 

Around Römer Platz

 

 

As usually, I would love to find something new in the little shops first on the way to Römer Platz before actually going shopping. I love to explore the beauty of the city and found a place around the corner to listen to the musician playing the beautiful songs which touched people’s heart and made me burst into tears as well.

前往羅馬廣場的途中,天色已經開始漸暗,儘管這些都是再熟悉不已的道路,總不會感到厭倦而是像個孩子般帶著好奇心的探索這一帶新的變化,坐在廣場的角落的階梯上,仔細聆聽街頭藝人拉著小提琴演奏著動人心弦的曲目,再疲倦的身軀也得到了心靈上的釋放。

每次走在采爾購物區 (Zeil) 總是令人開心且興奮,就算瘋狂不血拼,這裡有不少時髦女生最愛的流行服飾商店,所有來自世界各地的人都聚集在這裡逛街,百貨公司的人潮總是絡繹不絕,我覺得其實不少歐洲人的消費能力真的不輸亞洲人。

My Zeil Gallery

 

 

Finally, I went to My Zeil Gallery which is full of people from all over the world and encountered a cool mountain Bike competition. Oh! I love the luminous halls in this biggest shopping mall in Frankfurt. The most exhilarating is watching the show in each level in the whole building with crowed of excited audience. I felt lucky because it was such a big surprise for an ordinary Saturday cabin crew life.

最後我在法蘭克福最大的購物中心My Zeil裡,意外看到了腳踏車極限運動的比賽,棟仿造柏林國會大廈的玻璃帷幕流線建築,全長47公尺,擁有歐洲第一長的電梯,先不說特殊的設計結構,對於身長在亞洲,從小習慣看到科技產品或是高樓大廈的我們而言,法蘭克福的商場只有如此的規模或許真心覺得還好,但在歐洲人的心目中,這可是個充滿科技的突破。

這熱鬧的電音讓整棟樓層全都high翻天,每層樓都是選手們的比賽場地,工作人員小心翼翼實施了道路管制,最後一層樓是選手們決賽的最後一關,每個人都使出渾身解數還有表演特技,超酷的阿!好幸運讓我這外國人也能在以為只是平凡的星期六,看到精彩的單車演出。

 

Happy New Year!

 

 

At the Chinese New Year Eve, all the cabin crews in this flight to Frankfurt got 7 red envelops from our cabin manager, captains and first officers and ground staff manager based in Frankfurt. It’s our tradition to get the small money from senior persons. That means not only good lucks but also a motivation to keep working for the next year!

After taking off from Frankfurt airport, I saw the amazing view over the Europe. I guess that is the Alpen and the glacier with beautiful snow covered near Hungary. I was so happy at that time and wish you guys all the best!

從法蘭克福機場起飛之後,大概是在匈牙利的布達佩斯上空,向下眺望竟是一片不可思議的美景,阿爾卑斯山的冰河地形一覽無遺。新年期間還能拿到7個紅包,內心充滿著喜悅,只希望新的一年也都順順利利,心想事成。

 

 

Love,
