Don’t you hate it when you’re having fun and something bursts your bubble.
I left Frankfurt early to make sure I returned the rental car in time.
What was great was the graffiti art sprawled along the highway. It was unfortunate that I wasn’t able to take photos of them.
I almost picked up a hitchhiker. I even turned my car around and drove 20 mins to go back to where I saw him. He wasn’t there when I drove by again.
I know you must think I’m crazy but I do know how much it sucks to want to go somewhere and you don’t have the money or whatever the reason they have for hitchhikking and have cars drive by.
So…since I was on my own for 5 hours I turned up my music and was dancing in my seat. I was having so much fun and as I made a turn just before a bridge before Düsseldorf…BAM!
A bright light. I was caught speeding by a speed camera.
I went from carefree and fun to serious and anxious. All I could think of was how much money is it? How do I pay for it? And just how stupid I was for getting caught not even so much that I was speeding. I still don’t even know by how much I was speeding by.
What I do know is that if the car company gets the speeding ticket they will charge my car with an extra €25 for a service fee.
Anyway, that is in the past. The next journey which I decided last night/this morning was to travel to Berlin.
I know, I’m kind of kicking myself for renting a car when I could have just left from Frankfurt.
I’ll be staying there for about 5 days then back to London to meet Hannah then back on a train to Glasgow.
See you in Berlin.
