Our way to Wyk auf Foehr

This morning at 0800, our trip by train to Wyk auf Foehr started.

I went from Obernburg via Aschaffenburg to Frankfurt by regional trains first which took two hours. At Frankfurt Central Station, I changed trains to my long distance express train which brought me at the end to Dagebuell harbour after a ride of an additional eight hours.

But what a trip…

First, I was not able to believe it… My car number did not appear at any of the wagons of that train… So I was a bit puzzled and asked one of the officials of the trains. And what did he say… Yes, indeed, we are running with our restaurant car and without business class coach. But exactly this was the one I had reserved my seat in!!

So what now??

He advised me to take a seat in second class as it is not full yet. I got the ticket signed off that I can claim back some money as by booking class and reserved seat was not available.

Well, long story, short result… It went OK at the end, even while the air conditioning in the coach broke down.

In Hamburg, Sven joined me coming from Bonn and the rest of the trip was agreeable.

Have a look at the pictures I took during the trip. 🙂

Today, our holidays 2013 began. 🙂

I drove 6.5 hours from Rambouillet to Obernburg with our two cats, Luna and Nera. Both will stay with my parents for the next two weeks.

I started shortly before 0900 and went via N10, A86 and A4 towards A320 which leads to the German border. Then via A6, A63, A60, A67, A3 and B469 towards Obernburg. I arrived shortly before 1530 in Germany.

The drive lasted 682 kms. Our Bretzelmovil went very well and without issues, despite of its age and kilometers. I am proud of it.

This evening, we will watch the Bundesliga opening Munich – M’Gladbach in German HD television. I am going to love the glass of beer. 🙂
