Snowed under in Germany

Earlier this afternoon, we left for the Oberursel forest to buy a Christmas tree. Well, they were all sold out, just like snow shovels are right now.

We have lent ours out so many times  and then one of the borrowers calls to ask if he could lend it to one of his friends… A snow shovel is the hottest commodity on the market right now. My husband was able to get the very last one from TOOM Baumarkt (home improvement center) back in early November. I had just told him about this post on a Korean website, which had stated Germany should get ready for the worst winter in 1000 years.

We passed the school on our way to the forest .

Where did I park my car again?

More of this white stuff is expected through the night. Wonder if the Kuwaitis would be interested in buying some for their indoor ski slope..? We have enough to share.

Frankfurt-Hahn Airport and Marketing Ads

Just a few hours ago we arrived at Frankfurt-Hahn airport with Ryanair. We had a splendid time in Trapani, Sicily, but more about that later on my travel blog.

What I noticed today, and not on 3 April (our day of departure), was the marketing ad for the airport. I cannot fathom what company would publish this as an advertisement slogan.

frankfurt hahn airport - Wir können Flughafen

There is no mistake – as the same message is written in English as well.

frankfurt hahn airport - we can airport

What is the message here? Cheap airport, cheap translation?

On a different note, Ryanair is turning into a hardcore flying sales engine. Not only flight attendants, but also pilots have to announce items for sale. If you try to rest, be assured to wake up about every 10 to 15 minutes for an advertisement. On the return flight, among the various offers, substitute cigarettes were also advertised for € 6 a pack. After listening to about five different offers, I would not have been surprised to hear goose down feather bedding being sold on board. These flights look more and more like a cheap Werbefahrt (low-priced bus trips around Germany, geared at the older generation, with the intention of selling high-priced items).

What is good about Ryanair? Well, we had a direct flight to Trapani and arrived safely.
