After several months in Asia and a few weeks in the US, returning to Europe was a bit of a culture shock. Even though Frankfurt isn’t usually renowned for the beauty of its architecture or strong arts scene, I actually quite liked the large German city.
The old city had several cobbled lanes and squares, full of statues and lined by dozens of colourful buildings. Bars were doing a brisk trade in the fleeting sunshine, locals and tourists alike enjoying a wide variety of German lagers everywhere you looked.
While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend spending several weeks, there are definitely a lot worse places to find yourself for a few days.
