What do you do when you have a single day in Frankfurt, but your kids can’t fathom walking into yet another church?

You take a river cruise, of course.

The kids really wanted to get on one of these cruising boats, though I was skeptical. What would we see that we couldn’t capture with a walk through the city? It’s much cheaper – for a start. And, it kills a lot more time. Plus, in my mind, strolling the streets in Europe is a lot more fun.

But, there are two of them, one of me, and I’ve spent a lot more time in Europe than they have.

 

I was pleasantly surprised. Inside, it was possible to order food and drinks.  I was, of course, in the middle of my Flammkuchen dreams and couldn’t have managed to wolf down a plate of sausage or schnitzel in the time it took to cruise the river. And, I have to question how that food is prepared in enough time to cruise and eat.

 

But, I ordered a beer and allowed the boys to indulge in a coca-cola to get them through the day. And, the service was remarkably swift, despite the number of people on the cruiser. I probably could have ordered us food.

There wasn’t much of a point to that, though, the boys stood outside, pointing at buildings and tapping on the window to be certain I was seeing what they were seeing.

 

And, the funny thing is, I truly enjoyed myself – perhaps not as much as the kids did, but that’s a big ask. If I were to do it again (which I absolutely would), I would book a longer trip and order some food to enjoy while doing so. At the very least, that would give us more time for walking after. Perhaps in the next few years…
