Living with intent, social engagement, learning, growing, giving
I am currently studying towards a professional accreditation in project management, in the hope of becoming more employable when my expat assignment comes to an end. I travelled to Frankfurt last week to attend a project management course.
I added one day to my trip and did some relaxing and sightseeing.
I stayed in Sachsenhausen and walked into the city via the river side parks.
It was so cold that one woman cyclist who stopped to put on a beanie under her helmet beside the river looked at me and exclaimed (in German) about how cold it was.
Museums are closed on Monday so I didn’t have the option of spending the day indoors. I took refuge from the cold in the church on the Römer. An attendant spent over half an hour telling me the history of the church and it was pleasant to sit in the warmth and learn about the history of Frankfurt.
I spent 2 hours over a delicious lunch of salad, pasta and a glass of wine in the Italian restaurant beside the cathedral.
At 3pm I remembered a sign I had seen at Harmonie cinema in Sachsenhausen for a film in English starting in 20 minutes. I walked there as far as I could, arrived 5 minutes late, bought a ticket to the wrong film, realised and exchanged the ticket (in German) for the film The Denier and entered the cinema just as the opening credits started. It was a very pleasant way too finish the day; relaxing with a film.
I enjoyed my time in Frankfurt but I don’t recommend it as a tourist destination
