... and is that Frankfurt, which we met on DAY 1 and DAY 2 of the getaway, not only is he financial lung and heart of EuropeIt is also a perfect link point for the start of any great trip (with more than 250 direct destinations) as well as for less ambitious but possibly really beautiful routes and here they are written down for the future. While we return home, that which this time we will take with more affection than ever for the cold we have spent these days in these lands of Hesse.
After breakfast again at the buffet of Intercity Frankfurt Hotel (ALL THE ACCOMMODATION INFORMATION HERE), a hotel that we will never recommend to anyone although we already talk about it in the corresponding article, we have packed our suitcases, checked out and headed for the last time on this trip to Frankfurt Hbf to take the S-Bahn S8 or S9 that returns us to the Terminal 1 of the huge Frankfurt International Airport

After 2 hours and 10 minutes we took land in Madrid. Gone is that dry talk of the Germans, one of the ugliest languages to hear in our opinion. Gone is the "revolutionary tax" of a coffee and an infusion, we never failed ... !! 6.20 EUR !! (and behind it knowing that we are in one of the most expensive countries in Europe for our pocket, at least it seems to us). It is possible that there is also the surprise of finding some rather dirty cities, which we have not commented on and we did not expect ...
... but there is also the discovery of the skyscraper Frankfurt, which really impresses and the romantic town of Heidelberg, of which we are delighted.
He passing through Madrid was ephemeral, and A Coruña, our final destination, awaits us.
Daily life will absorb us again, waiting for any day, again, to close our eyes and appear in another corner of the planet. Although for that, for now there is a long season? ...
