December 2018 - Touch of Frankfurt, Germany

A quick last look at Europe from Frankfurt staying with Phil again.  Enjoyed more hearty beer and food and Winter Markets as well as Bjorn's birthday.

Flights out of Europe to Mexico were the best from Frankfurt so it was a no brainer.  Not just for price, but the rating for the flight by Condor is quite high.  So yeah, I fly up to take in a little December in Germany for my first time since beginning Europe adventures in 2003.

One last week in Germany

And that was Europe...August 20 to Dec 5...Portugal, Spain, Germany, back and forth, sailing, motorbiking and as much swimming as I could do.  So many good moments and good people and amazing experiences.  We will meet again...Nos Vemos.
