    Default Flying off to Frankfurt

    I won't be around next week, as I'm in Frankfurt on a training course.
    From what I can make out from the website, there's no wireless network in the hotel, so I'll catch up with you all in a week or so!

    Cheers, Phil

    Frankfurt is quite a nice place. Be carefull on the underground at night. A good english bar right next to the business centre. I carnt remenber the name. The old town is great for a good beer. Have a good trip mate.

    I'm safely back. it was an interesting week! We had trouble finding hotel accomodation, as the annual book fair was on. (Typical! It was Oktoberfest the week before!) We ended up in a small hotel in a little village. The hotel was cheap, but the 40 Euro taxi trip each way wasn't! After spending so much time in Taxi's over the past week -all of them "E" Series Mercs, and all of them going like hell (200kph on the A5 autobahn is the record!), I've got a serious urge to go and buy one.
    Otherwise, not much else to report, apart from the fact that German beer is still excellent, and flying is a pain in the ar53 these days.

    Its not just the German's Phil, the one and only time i have had to get a Taxi abroad(While working) was in Switzerland, they're almost German's, and it was an E Class Merc, and he was driving like a nutter too, at similar speeds to your man! I'm not the best passenger at the best of times, let alone with a guy who dont speak a word of English, doing silly speeds in rush hour in Basel!

    I swore after that i would never get in another taxi abroad!
