    Konstanz and Lake Constance

    For years I’ve been planning on visiting my friend in Konstanz for a sailing trip on Lake Constance (Bodensee). In August 2008 we both finally found the time to realize those plans. I took the train from Frankfurt to Konstanz, arriving on late Friday afternoon. But before we entered the boat on Saturday my friend showed me what Konstanz had to offer culturally.

    Paros

    Paros is one of the biggest islands of the Cyclades. My friend and I spent most of our time in the island's capital Parikia where we arrived with the ferry from Piraeus. It's a nice town with cute little streets, all in the typical white and blue, and nice shops and restaurants.

    Frankfurt Eastend

    If you are in Frankfurt and don't want to see the typical tourist spots you could check out the eastern part instead. There you can find the industrial port, built in 1908 (which you can only see from the outside unfortunately since the entry is forbidden) as well as ancient rail tracks that aren't used anymore, old cranes and the old Grossmarkthalle, one of the most famous market halls in Germany, built in the 1920s.
