Maria’s Beer Balcony in Germany

In mid-November, I had two friends here from London for a weekend visit to Frankfurt, and of course we got together on the beer balcony.

Dilshini, a German with Sri Lankan roots, and Harjit, a Brit with Indian roots.

Dilshini and I have known each other through her time at Frankfurt International School (FIS), and I met her husband, Harjit at one of the FIS reunions in Oberursel. The last time we saw each other was in May 2013  in London at their wedding at the Gherkin on the 40th floor. This time, we met a bit closer to the ground. :-)

Where’s Maria?

Today I’m going on my next three-day trip to the place where this kind of glass is made. Can you guess to which European island I’m going?

Hint: I’m going to have pastizzi, drink a Kinnie, spend euro, and speak English.
