I can’t believe our trip to Germany is coming up so soon now. We leave REALLY early this Saturday morning – flight is at 6:30am, which means getting to the airport at 4:30am. And this will be right after my work christmas party which finishes at 2am! So.. I guess I’m not getting much sleep that night! But no matter coz this holiday is all about relaxing, de-stressing and pampering. On Saturday night (after a nice long nap upon check-in at the hotel), we’ve booked in a hot stone massage to kick off the week at the nearby Taunus Therme (huge sauna and thermal springs – our sole reason for staying in this hotel on the outskirts of Frankfurt). On Sunday we’re meeting with some friends for FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck (traditional german brunch on a Sunday – its amazing) and visiting the Christmas Markets around Frankfurt. On Monday we have a few necessary errands to do, like seeing a podiatrist for Kwai, our dermatologist, and some shopping.
Tuesday and Wednesday will again be all about relaxation – with massages booked in on both days. Firstly a two person synchronised massage (yes two people massaging you at the same time – I’ve had this before there and it is AWESOME), and secondly a honey oil massage (really nice and great for the skin too!) We’ll spend heaps of time in the thermal pools and saunas too (yep getting nekkid with the germans). I love it there.. it is so relaxing, de-stressing, peaceful and really re-energising. I always feel so much healthier afterwards.
On Thursday I’m gonna get my hair cut at my usual hairdresser in Frankfurt called Obscura – they’re great and sooooo much cheaper than London. And finally to finish off our holiday, the last two nights will be spent in Cologne, visiting the christmas markets, the huge dom (cathedral – image above) and beautiful Rhine river.. and of course FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck at the luxurious Hyatt Regency (image below) where we’ll be staying. :). Hopefully we’ll be able to meet up with AericWinter too as he’ll be at his home town which is nearby that weekend. Should be really nice.
*sigh* I can’t wait! I totally don’t feel like working now… just counting the days.. hours.. minutes..
Whenever I start feeling too fed up, depressed, frustrated, stressed and downright annoyed with living in shitty London… it is these moments that I get to spend on the european continent that remind me why I’m here.
