Salam uols. It has been awhile… since I last update my travelogue. Hmmm… laziness has no boundaries. Malas tahap gaban. Been to few places since the last time and it’s almost compulsory for me to write about it before I forgot all the details. I’m getting older, my memories getting shorter.
So now, I will start with my most recent getaway… since i’m still super excited about it.. lol
It’s our family getaway. A road trip through central Europe for 10 days
only. Everybody working so their leave from work are limited… some even took leave without pay.
As usual, planning in advance are crucial, especially traveling to Europe
mahal gila beb When i checked the airfare to everywhere in Europe its impossibly expensive. Nothing below RM3000. Finally, in hesitant, I purchased from OMAN AIR – KUL to FRANKFURT via Muscat. MYR3600++/PAX.
I never fly with Oman Air before. Honestly speaking, their cabin and foods are not as good as Emirates but I liked their modern Airport (Muscat International Airport). Transit Hall not far from Gates and smooth transit; not as confusing and crowded like Bangkok Airport. Definitely, I will fly with Oman Air again just because of this.
DAY 1 – 21st Dec 2018 (Friday). Our flight ETD at 021:05 but delayed for almost 4o minutes due to late arrival of the plane from Muscat. More than 5 hours layover at KLIA ( arrived from Kota Kinabalu 3:30PM). Luckily we found an empty spot near gate C37 so that we can sit comfortably for a few hours.
Our flights was good but not able to sleep
not comfortable bah…. Landed as scheduled. Passing immigration was easy. When we gets our luggage, we get down to Level 0 for the Regional Train (BAHN S8 AND S9) to Frankfurt Main Station – 4 stops from airport. Bought train tickets from the RMV machine. One way tix euro4.90/pax.
We stayed at The Frankfurt Hotel just in front of the Bahn. Because we arrived early and unable to checked-in, we leave our luggage at the counter and start our leg work activity… looksie looksie lah.
Our first destination – looking for halal foods restaurant but not open yet because still early. So we walked to Alstadt – The Old Town. If you want to go by tram, took Tram No. 11.
While walking around, suddenly raindrops start to pour.. Shit! what a mess. NEED to find a shelter aka restaurant.
WALK AROUND CHRISTMAS MARKET
Many Malaysian and Indonesian tourists but not so friendly. What the…..
Because of the rains, we didn’t stayed long. Around 1PM we decides to go back to our hotel and stopped by at supermarket to buy our stock food.
