Frankfurt am Main

After my three days in London, I continued on to Frankfurt am Main to visit with one of Horst Engineering’s top aerospace industry customers. I last visited this customer 10 years ago, so it was a long overdue visit. I was excited to meet with them, tour the renovated plant, and discuss their growth prospects.

I got to Frankfurt late on a Wednesday night and between the plane, shuttle bus, train, and walking, it was past midnight when I reached the hotel near the  Hessen Center on the outskirts of the city. Thankfully, the plant was also walking distance from the hotel and train station.

After my customer visit, I returned to the hotel and did some work. Then I headed back into the city center to walk around and take in the sites. I hadn’t been to Frankfurt in years, so it was an enjoyable afternoon.

A late day thunderstorm didn’t dampen my spirits. I visited Foto Rahn, a Leica dealer and photo gallery. I soaked in the sounds of the city. Thanks to the Happy Cow app, I found a great vegan restaurant called Naturbar. After dinner, I walked around some more and then return to the hotel because I had to catch the train again early in the morning.

@trailrunningmom at the counter @veggiegalaxy where they serve breakfast all day long! #vegetarian #vegan #cambridge Great seeing fellow ultra-runners @spencer.farrar @mikewardian and @trailrunningmom @racemaniaexpo in #boston #trailrunning #ultrarunning "Looking back, 2:04 does sound better than 2:05."-- @ryanhall3 (Being interviewed by Dave McGillivray @racemaniaexpo in #boston ) #running Even though I've heard @markallengrip tell his 1989 @ironmantri World Championship story many times, I never tire of it. He presented @racemaniaexpo @bostonu this morning. #markallen #ironman #triathlon Coach Al and @trailrunningmom demonstrate a proper front #plank and illustrate true #functionalstrength at their #trailrunning camp at @camphazenymca Campers had a day packed full of learning, exploring many other topics: descending technique, pacing, mental strength, nutrition, essential oils, and injury prevention. They even did pre-dinner #yoga and I joined them!  #fitinspiration #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #ultrarunning #pursuitstrong Our version of the Poggio...after 10 years of waiting, I think we found a new training partner in the household to join @trailrunningmom and me...at least on the easy days. I'll take advantage now since in another 10 years, I'll be the one getting dropped. #horstspikes #cycling @islabikesusa #islabikes #teamhorstsports #boltonheritagefarm #bolton #Connecticut L to R: Places 2, 4, and 3 at the frigid  #BoltonRoadRace We had lots of fun. The best part is that I tower over the crew in this photo! #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #railtrail #vernon #Connecticut @seven_cycles #sevencycles #teamhorstsports
