Our last full day today!

It has been set that we will meet in the foyer at 1pm for our departure to Frankfurt.

Our morning starts with listening to the Anzac day match between the Pies and the Bombers! Half time was breakfast time - Our last European buffet breakfast. We catch up with everyone else down there! Cale ends up listening to the final 10 mins of the footy in our hotel room. If you didn't know, it was close! Collingwood won!


We've all decided to take the cable car up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress this morning. We head off together but split up not long after arriving at the fortress. Roddy doesn't cope very well with the movement of the cable car and needs to stop to get his head in order before continuing on.


The fortress is huge - It would be very easy to get lost inside! The walls were made thick back in the day. We all manage to fill the morning in and we meet Bidsy at the altered agreed time of 1.30. He is there waiting with the next vehicle - A big black van. We look like the mafia!

The drive to Frankfurt takes about an hour and a half, through some lush green forest and a huge highway! We detoured slightly to visit the final resting place of the Red Baron.


Our final nights accommodation has been a closely guarded secret for about a year. We finally arrive at our B & B - beer and breakfast! Beers are €1, and stocked, ready to go. And even better, the rooms are themed. We are in the African room - very weird! There is also a beach, music and red room.


Cale and Bidsy doing their washing!


We walked down to a local restaurant for our last authentic German meal, and it didn't disappoint. Three of the boys now have matching 'rust' coloured pants! Patto tried to get his drink order across.


We're starting to get the hang of this German - well, not really!


Our last sleep on German soil - in the African themed room! We are due to fly out to Bangkok at 2.45 tomorrow afternoon.
