We landed in Frankfurt at 11 AM in the morning. We took a train to Mannheim where we met Mike. We then took another local train to the town of Iggleheim to Mike and Franziska’s house. It feels like a small village. They have a beautiful home with a nice garden and chickens and a green house. We enjoyed a nice outdoor snack and dinner made with homegrown salad ingredients of different varieties.
After dinner we went to a nearby town of Speyer. This small town seems to have everything from a museum, a large catedral and the River Rhine flowing next to it. And of course best part of Europe, gelato stands. It even has a statue of someone walking the Camino, as there is a Camino trail that leads from here to Metz.
