Frankfurt - Hunsfeld
07.01.2007 - 09.01.2007
This morning we caught a train to Fulda, Germany, where we met with Annika who had kindly invited us to stay with her and her family for the next few days. Annika was a gap student for 6 months in Australia where she worked with Kylie at Glennie, the boarding school that Kylie works at. Kylie and Annika had made plans to catch up when we arrived in Germany. Catching the train was an interesting experience especially as neither of us speak much German and each stop was announced in German so that ment we had to be extra careful paying attention and watching each stop to make sure we got off at the correct station. We were a little confused at one point when a stop appeared that had Fulda in the name but we later found out that it was simply part of the Fulda area and we were correct not to get off at that stop. We arrived safely and drove through Fulda to Hunsfeld where Annika and her family live. Upon arriving we met with the Brodala family and Annika and her Mother cooked us a wonderful traditional German dish (Goulash, Kartoffelknodel and Rolkraut – Goulash, potatoes and red cabbage) before we went for a stroll around the Hunsfeld local park.
After our walk through the park, Annika had arranged to for us to meet some of her friends and we had a scrumptious cake Annika had made for us. It was great to meet some of Annika’s friends and here about Annika’s time in Australia. We spent the remainder of the afternoon with the family before having some dinner and watching a movie and then heading off to bed.
