2016 - Day One

Home to Frankfurt

I was up early and shuffled the cars about to get the Rocket out of the garage. I had fitted the Saddlemen sissy-bar bag the night before and it was just a matter of popping my sponge bag in one of the pockets.

A quick top up of petrol in Hythe and I was at the Shuttle terminal in time to meet my brother Neill who was already there.

After picking up the Czech cash from Travelex we were off. Almost a miracle in that the train was almost on time leaving.

The ride to the first overnight near Frankfurt would be a mile crunching motorway trip.

Neill had planned the route pretty extensively including petrol stops. Off motorway where possible where they are cheaper.

We finally arrived at the hotel about 1730 and checked in. The NH Frankfurt Airport West as it says is near the airport and also pretty much next to a railway line. Incredibly, the hotel was pretty soundproofed.

Once we changed we needed to get out for something to eat and a beer or two.

The hotel is actually in a small town called Raunheim. The first few places were shut and we walked further along to find a beer. The first being very well received.

A further walk revealed a restaurant where we could eat and have a beer. Perfect.

It had been a long day and so we headed off to bed. The fresh air and the beer hadn't helped.
