The Army gives soldiers stationed in Europe a 4 day weekend every month and we've been taking advantage of those weekends nearly every month to travel. 4 days is often plenty of time to see a city or region, so we're very thankful for the Army's generosity in that regard. For Labor Day weekend we headed to Frankfurt and surrounding areas. It was a cold and foggy drive for the first bit, but still lovely. Fog just reminds me of Europe.
I have driven by this place over 8 times (even though it's 2.5 hours from home. When things that are 2.5 hours away from home are super familiar... I don't know, it's just a little weird to me!) and have always wanted to stop. A newish chic outlet shopping center? I am SO there! Here's an aerial view:
And a map, just for fun:
"Kids, stand in the frame and let me take your picture!"
Snapshots from Wertheim Village. Felt like we were back in America for the morning.
Even has aspen trees! (maybe??) Or birch? Definitely a Colorado vibe regardless.
We didn't buy anything, even an outlet in Europe is still a little pricey, although I debated long and hard over a new Coach wallet. But I just couldn't justify it. Fun to check another place off the good ol' bucketlist! After a quick stop at Wertheim Village we drove an hour to Gelnhausen - recap coming soon!
