Bonding Time

Last weekend my college volleyball coach, Bond, was in town and we had a great time running around.  It started with the traditional trip to our neighborhood joint, Zur Sonnenuhr. Bond had the pleasure of meeting Tanya. It was a night full of belly laughing, great food, and reminiscing. My former teammate Alex came down from Cologne for the weekend and joined us for dinner. I felt bad for Justin having to listen to us talk about the glory days haha.

Bond was a trooper and stayed up until midnight the same day he flew in and then slept for 11 hours! On Saturday we had lunch at Alex's parents' house before heading to Saarbrucken (south of Frankfurt).

At the train station close to Alex's house. Bond striking a pose.

Reunited! Alex, Bond, me and Justin

The wintery town of Saarbrucken

This town had a ton of French influence, you almost forgot you were in Germany

More French influence with a white/pink church.

Saarbrucken's Rathaus

Just a really cool door we saw

Bond was in town for the weekend and we wanted to make sure he had a good time. So to end the trip we took him to an FSV soccer game. This is the local division two team and it is literally a 10 minute walk from our place. As you can see Bond really got into the game.


This is not the last you will see of Bond because he joined us for one day in Garmisch at the end of his trip. It was great showing him our little life in Frankfurt and seeing someone from home it always a treat.
