This is my 100th blog post! It doesn’t even seem like I’ve been writing for that long, but I’m super thankful for all of you that follow this blog and like my posts. Here’s to 100 more!
For the next entry in my travel series, we head over to Frankfurt, Germany. I had never been to Germany before and didn’t know that much about German culture before our trip, but I was super excited to visit a new country. Read on to find out about my first night in Deutschland.
Where To Stay
We stayed at the Novum Hotel Imperial Frankfurt Messe. The hotel overall was pretty small, but not bad. The room was pretty standard, but the bathroom was really nice. Again, we got a triple room, but the third bed was oddly smaller and lower to the ground than the other beds? The staff were all very nice. The only real con that I have was that we only had like 7 channels on the TV, but we were only there for one night so it wasn’t too annoying.
What To Do
We got to Frankfurt around 5 and wanted to do some sightseeing, but almost everything was closed or about to close. Frankfurt is a pretty chill city and most things tend to close earlier than somewhere like Paris or New York. If we had got to Frankfurt earlier we had planned on going to the zoo, the botanical garden, or taking a bus tour. Instead we just headed to hotel and decided to chill out before going to dinner.
What To Eat
Everyone knows that Germany is famous for dishes like sauerkraut, bratwurst, and pretzels, but for our first night in Germany, we ate the gummy bears that the hotel gave us (very yummy btw), then headed to a tapas restaurant called Ponte. The area of Frankfurt that we were in was kind of deserted and we were really hungry and the tapas place was only about a 5 minute walk away. Ponte is amazing! The food was really good and the waiter was really nice and waited while we found an English version of the menu online. I suggest the shrimp and the baked potatoes. But to give you an idea of how quiet Frankfurt is, when we left the restaurant around 9 or 10 we were the only people left in the restaurant.
Where To Go At Night
Later that night, we decided to do something lowkey, so we went to a hookah place called Deja Vu Shisha Lounge. The place was nice and chill, and played good music. Tbh, the people there weren’t as friendly as the people in other places, but it wasn’t too bad.
For the next entry in my travel series, we’ll be heading to Berlin!
