The reason why I have named the title “Togethernesss!” is because this is my first time sightseeing with such a big group overseas. A total of 11 of us which consists of 10 pretty ladies and a handsome hunk with awesome fun spent in Frankfurt and Heidelberg. Everyone is so spontaneous and agrees in one thing together. We eat together, shop together and sightsee together as a group – Togetherness! πŸ™‚ And…This is really rare and I am so glad that this 9 days trip turned out so good!

Fried Calamari

The very first thing we will do after we touched down into a destination is to find food! We have at least one “crew joint” in each destination. You can be guaranteed a good decent meal in 99.9% of the crew joints. I have only been to one sucky crew joint so far and I will show you where is it on my later posts.

We shared the fried calamari as our starter. Yums!

Seafood Spaghetti (Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare)

I had seafood spaghetti and it is called spaghetti ai frutti di mare in Italian. I love pasta! I like my seafood spaghetti with lots of tabasco, spicy oil and chili flakes!

I ordered a glass of Lambrusco. I am not a wine lover or neither am I knowledgeable about alcoholic beverages. I would classify myself as “just drink and try” drinker. My favorites would be Lambrusco and Moscato. Lambrusco is an Italian red wine with a sweet and slightly sparkling taste. Nice wine for ladies!

Tiramisu

We shared the tiramisu for dessert. I like tiramisu but this is not the best tiramisu I have ever tried. I like tiramisu with really soft cakey layers and strong alcohol taste. Hard to find really good tiramisu! Nevertheless, I like having dessert at the end of the course. It completes the meal and rounds off nicely with a sweet satisfaction. I would say this is a pretty satisfied lunch! – Nice wine, nice starter, nice main course and nice desert! πŸ™‚

All of us is figuring out how to buy the train ticket but we came to realize that most of the locals did not buy tickets at all.

Waiting for a train that will never come..

The funniest thing is we waited stupidly for the train in the opposite direction at the last stop when we were supposed to stay on in the train instead. Thus, the train went off without us and we boarded the next one.

We camwhored to kill time since we got to wait for the next train.

We went to the “town” (something like Orchard road in Singapore)Β as the girls wanted to buy long champ bags. I have no idea what is the name of this “town” cos I am just a “follower” in the group.Β Yiiyin is the “planner” and she is so much better than me in getting directions and reading maps.Β One of the best things about going out in a big group is you can just follow and leave the person who is good in directions to find the way. Heehee!

He can sell sausages anywhere he wants!

Random place in the "town"..

We went back early cos we had to wake up early to prepare for our trip to Heidelberg the next day. Stay tuned for the next post! πŸ™‚
