I travelled to Frankfort airport in Germany and then took 2 trains to reach Moringen, to visit the new BK retreat centre that was just purchased. It is an old hotel, but in very good shape, in the country side near a forest. A top chef could operate in this excellent, well-equipped kitchen. Charming sleeping rooms and meeting rooms, all in all, lovely space, which I am sure many people will visit and enjoy over the coming years.
I was invited by my old friend Denise, she and I always enjoy one another’s company! I should also say Denise makes many excellent TV shows on many areas of life, they are on YouTube (google, Denise Lawrence, if interested).
We visited a couple of cities. What I found odd was that there was hardly anyone in the shops and on the streets and this was Friday and Saturday afternoon. I was told that Germans seldom go out, they have everything they need, lots of TV stations, they can do all shopping online. I concluded this may be the case for some places in Germany, but certainly I hope not cities like Berlin, which I think is one of the best cities in the world.
We were hosted to coffee in a lovely flat, it’s always fun for me to see different houses and cultures as I travel and right across the street was where I took the hippie picture!!!
Denise, very kindly drove me to Hanover Airport, where I was flying from, so I didn’t have to tackle the trains again.
The buildings in Germany are well kept and date back to the 15th and 16th century, lots of wood and slate!!.
Mrs. Merkel could be in difficulty, people do not agree with her refugee policy. It is a long term process, first they have to learn the language, and many other steps before they can start contributing to society.
At the airport, waiting for plane to London. I met an interesting gentleman, on my way now to have dinner with him…
