Those of you who follow me on Instagram or Snapchat might know that I’ve been on a weekend getaway to Frankfurt last week. I actually didn’t take my camera or laptop with me and rarely had wifi because I decided that I needed a little break from all the buzz that’s going on online. And it actually felt really good! I did miss checking Instagram, Snapchat and of course the blog from time to time. But at the same time I enjoyed some off time to recharge my batteries and here I am, more determined and happy about the blogging thing as ever! Sometimes you just need a break from everything.
That’s why I do not have an awesome Frankfurt travel guide or diary for you. BUT despair not! I still took some pictures with my phone and decided to share them with you guys. They’re not the best quality pictures as I only have an iPhone 5 but I still thought it would be nice to post them up on here and show my impressions with you guys. I hope you like this different kind of travel post too :) And next time I’ll make sure to take my stuff with me on my travels so I can post more exciting travel content up here!
So… Here’s Frankfurt through my phone:
In flight-essentials: A good book to pass the time during the flight. I do love flying but sometimes the waiting at the airport or on the plane can get a bit boring, that’s why I always make sure to bring a book or some magazines with me. This time I took this new one with me, which I am absolutely enjoying so far.
The historical part of the city is incredibly beautiful. I loved walking between all these historical and fascinating buildings and imagining what life must have looked like at different centuries. This is something I especially love about European cities – they always have this historical city centre that buzzes with life and stories of forgotten times and families.
We had lunch at this steak place called “Maredo” and were seated right in front of a big glass wall with an amazing view over the big plaza and the buzzing Zeil. What I found particularly interesting was the amount of people walking though the streets even though it was Sunday, all the shops were closed and it was kinda cold-ish.
The other parts of Frankfurt are much more modern and filled with luxury brands and skyscrapers with offices and banks in them. As a girl from a small town in Austria I find these buildings extremely fascinating. The highest building I knew growing up was 10 stories high!!
These two pictures I took while waiting at a traffic light in the car. I actually quite like how they turned out despite being shot through the car window. And again, I’m utterly fascinated by all the mesmerizing skyscrapers in Frankfurt and the clash between modern and ancient in this city.
Airplane views are my favourite! I don’t think I’ll ever stop being fascinated by mankind’s ability to fly around the globe. There’s something about sitting in a plane and watching the clouds pass by. Also I’m always the annoying kid that has to have a window seat so she can snap some cool pictures for her Social Media. Turned out amazing, didn’t it?
DE: Wenn ihr mir auf Snapchat oder Instagram folgt dann wisst ihr bestimmt, dass ich letztes Wochenende in Frankfurt war. Leider hatte ich weder meine Kamera, noch meinen Laptop mit. Außerdem waren wir sowieso nur auf einer Familienfeier eingeladen und hatten nicht viel Zeit in Frankfurt. Deshalb gibt’s diesmal keine super tollen Reise Tipps oder ein Tagebuch für euch. Damit hier aber trotzdem ein bisschen Wanderlust aufkommt zeige ich euch ein paar Fotos die ich mit meinem Handy geschossen habe. Ich hoffe der Post gefällt euch trotzdem und beim nächsten mal nehm ich dann auch bestimmt wieder alles mit :P
