The last part with the last few hours of the second day of the blogger event in Frankfurt.

The day should have began with sports. Should have! Since (luckily) I wasn’t allowed to do any sports at this time, otherwise I would have weaseled out of it, since my mantra is ever since: “say no to sports!” ;). I had an excuse, but only Torsten made it to sports in the morning! Respect!

After that, we met for a small, but fine breakfast. In the night Nicole worked on a review and lookout paper for us. It was really nice to look at our pictures from the previous day!

We made it to one of my personal highlights, the rooftop of the Sheraton hotel, where an employee of the Fraport AG told us a lot of interesting stuff about the airport of Frankfurt. Mr Spangenberg is already working a long time at Fraport and he knows really everything ;). Normally you aren’t allowed to go on the roof top, since the flight security would be there immediately, so the application is compulsory. Did you know there are microphones all around the airport to record the noise the planes are making and depending how loud they are, the payments for the flights are adjusted? With what does the airport of Frankfurt earn the most money? Why did they shut down the Concorde? And which airplane (and which type) is flying just above our heads? Yes, to every of those questions Mr Spangenberg had an answer! It was amazing!

Then we went again in a warm hotel room, to be precise in a “show room”, where the executive housekeeper explained a room cleaning routine á la Sheraton to us. I was amazed, since they have a lot of time for each room and not like in some other hotels like I already experienced: “come in, take out the garbage and leave the room”. Every wish will be taken care of. Allergies are not a problem, if you prefer to sleep harder, you get an extra board under your mattress and if you don’t like apples, you won’t get apples again in the fruit basket in your room.

Softbox

Another highlight followed up: on our wish we were granted a tour via the hotel kitchen! We were able to take a glimpse at the in-house softbox and admired their thai vegetable carver, while she carved artistically roses in a watermelon! We were already impressed by her work on the buffet the day before. Klaus Böhler is very proud to have her in his team, since it isn’t easy to get someone like her in Germany. There are schools for artists like her and most graduates are appreciated a lot in Thailand and stay in Asia, then.

We saw alleys with gigantic sieves, bowls and gas stoves. A dream!

After that, we were able to decorate our gingerbread houses, while we chat with the chef patissier Petra Kirchmann. You could see the work of the patisserie on some pictures here (the twitter emblem, chocolate butterflies, etc.) and they are just amazing!

Director of kitchen Klaus Böhler showed us the “show kitchen” next to the large restaurant and in the end we are served many small treats in the Skyloft and where the Sheraton crew says goodbye to us.

Maybe you think my posts are very enthuastic, but I was and still am! There wasn’t one single thing I didn’t liked about the event and it was just a whole lot of fun! Thanks a lot again, Sheraton Airport Hotel in Frankfurt!
