Back in the Cold

As-Salamu Alaykum, that’s how our captain greeted us in the morning, two hours before arrival in Germany. The crew served breakfast, offering a choice of omelet and chilli prawns on rice. I went for the chilli prawns and a last taste of Asia.

At 6:45 we touched down in Frankfurt. First thing I saw when embarking from the plane was a mobile heater and a big bucket of grit. Winter hasn’t left Germany yet and when I had my luggage I headed to the next toilet to change thongs and shorts for boots, jeans and a fleece.

Some seven hours later I reached my final destination and was greeted by my whole family at the train station. Nice to be back.
