Day 6

Our final full day was a in many ways a bust, but in others not bad. Our original plan was to detour far into Germany and visit a particular town (the name of which escapes me currently) in order to see a museum dedicated to Medieval Crime & Punishment before heading up to Frankfurt for the night & catching our flight the next day. Unfortunately, after looking over the map, and judging our progress to the "turn off point", it was decided that the detour would be much too far. So, we headed straight towards Frankfurt.

Schloss Auerbach interiorAlong the way, we saw a few signs for Schloss Aurbach, so opted to check it out while we stopped off for lunch. The Schloss is yet another castle (no, I did not get tired of seeing them) that is fairly well preserved. Not fully restored, nor are tours offered, yet still a robust tourist attraction that can be explored. So, needless to say, we were impressed. And the waitress at the restaurant was rather impressive as well, with very cute, um, assets. Something I happened to notice at that point in the journey is that nose studs seem to be very popular in that region, with around 1 in 4 of the women ages 18-35 sporting one. But I digress.

Upon arrival in (or, rather, outside) Frankfurt, we found the hotel, got settled in, then my brother and I headed off in search of some absinthe. Well, actually, my brother was in search of absinthe . . . I was just the driver. You see, absinthe is apparently not available in the US, and my brother had somewhat promised his girlfriend that he'd bring a bottle back. We found a spirit house in Strassbourg that had some, but my bro insisted that it wasn't good quality stuff. And, of course, we couldn't locate any in the small villages we traveled through on the rest of our journey. So there we were, on a Saturday afternoon, wandering around the outskirts of Frankfurt looking for a spirit house/liquor store. Which, we discovered, don't stay open after 3:00pm on Saturdays. And aren't open at all on Sundays. All I could say was, "HAHA!" As such, my poor bro failed to go home with his desired bottle of absinthe.
