My Germany Trip Part 4: Frankfurt

Some people warned us that Frankfurt won't be much of a tourist spot...and they were right lol
This wasn't a bad thing at all to be honest, it was just another experience to check off. Anyways, the area we stayed at was in a bit of a sketchy area and both my friend and I were scared out of our minds as we ran to our hotel from the station. We decided it would be best to not move around much so we browsed through the Christmas Market first and crossed the bridge to what we believed to be "the safer side" and just lounged around along the river.

フランクフルトはあまりすることが無いよーなんてことを聞いていたのですがその通りでした。笑
夕方に着いたのですが、冬は日が暮れるのが早く、もう真っ暗な状態でした。ホテルの場所の治安もあまり良くなく、友達と2人で「怖い、怖い」といいながら、走って駅から向かいました。
せっかくの旅行でしたが、なるべく外出を控えようということで、一日目の夜はとりあえずクリスマスマーケットを見てきて、その後は橋を渡りもう少し安全の方に行き川沿いでゆっくりしました。



The landscape was really beautiful despite our initial scare and it reminded me a bit of Tokyo.
As we sat along the river, we got into a pretty deep conversation for the first time in a while and I feel like that made us even closer.

景色がとてもキレイで少し東京を思い出しました。
久しぶりにディープな話もできて、もっと仲良くなれた気がします。


The Christmas Market.
We were lucky to have been able to see it as it was coincidentally the last day open.

クリスマスマーケット。
たまたま最終日だったので行けてラッキーでした。


Although our initial plan was to stay in Frankfurt until the afternoon, we decided to just move on to the next city in the morning. We had a very satisfying morning buffet where we had a bit of a variety of hams and cheeses.

本当はお昼までフランクフルトにいようという予定だったのですが、朝からもう次に町に行く事にしたので、朝は少しゆっくりホテルのバイキングで朝食をすませました。
ハムとチーズのバラエティが豊富でした。


See you back for Heidelberg!

次はハイデルベルクです!

アップするの忘れてたちょっと前の

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。



前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


じゃまた。

Saturday:
There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my thesis...like I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…

GRADUATION and MOVING TO HAKATA

Hello again.
I'm alive and well and slightly busier/have more responsibility on my hands  since the last time that I posted. Let's just first begin by saying that I am officially a college graduate. Here's the cake and plate of gigantic Gyozas that I celebrated with: 
大学を卒業しました。 台風直撃前で良かったです。 お祝い用のケーキと巨大餃子。




I'm starting my new job soon in Hakata, which is located in the Fukuoka prefecture.  I've moved into my new apartment, which I'm really loving but the last two months have just been such a whirlwind of prepping for graduation, moving, and getting things ready for my new job, that I'm just glad I can see finally start seeing an end to the commotion. Of course work is going to be a whole new journey but for the time being, I'm glad I have a roof over my head. My room has this loft and the stairs going up to it is basically a bunch of shelves. It's my bookshelf for now and it's looking pretty cool. I have a couple more books getting sent over an…
