Hanging out at the Market with my gorgeous young cousin and her special man Tomasi who is a world-class Tattooist. One day I will have my own special little tattoo – just like actress Dame Helen Mirren decided it was time, I too will do so, but I need some more gluhwein! Maybe yext year …
Instead I’m here sporting my new gangster hat bought in Palermo, Sicily.
Seeing Tomasi Suluape Tatau Samoa’s work today at his studio, he’s the only official Sua trained Sulu’ape tatau artist based in Europe, keeping the traditions and the family name alive through his tattooing. Each piece, whether machine or traditional is a completely unique customised work of art with an unmistakable style.
Onwards to Frankfurt to travel home, one of the most recognisable buildings in the city and a favourite. Westendstraße 1 is a 53-storey, 208 m skyscraper in the Westend-Süd and close to my hotel, you can always spot it coming into the Hauptbanhof (main train station) and for me it means either arriving in Europe or departing … Almost time to head home to Australia.
The fun costs €8.00 for adults and €3.50 for children and teenagers up to the age of 14 and includes an audio tour lasting one hour. Not only will you enjoy an extraordinary journey, the ticket price also includes your choice of a bottle of cider, apple juice or mineral water and a bag of pretzels. Other beverages can be bought additionally.
Heading home on the unmanned train between the two terminals is quick and easy, just check your electronic ticket if your airline is departing from Terminal 1 or 2 as Frankfurt Airport is one of the busiest in Europe.
