Finding some beauty in Maintal

One of the German teachers at school invited us to her house to celebrate our marriage. We haven't been able to arrange a good weekend for all of us until June, but it waas a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather we have FINALLY started to have in Frankfurt! We headed over to her house, in the little village of Maintal. It was quite a walk from the train station, but the town was SO adorable. We had waffles and strawberries and whipped cream, and
enjoyed chatting with her daughter too. Then, she took us to explore the church right near their house - it was built in the 10th century. The coolest thing we did was to go up the bell tower and the church and see all the way over to Frankfurt. It was so nice to see Frankfurt in that light, and that view, because I find Frankfurt quite grey otherwise. Then we walked around the village
walls, through the apple orchards and through all the fields. It was great to be outside in nature! We came back and had apple juice on the porch, until it was time for us to head home. At the train station, we saw this cute mural of a boar in leiderhosen! It was so cute and funny! It was a lovely Sunday out with our friend!
