About 3 weeks I jetted off to Frankfurt for a few days. I was accompanying my friends to a trade show where they were helping on the 3D Hubs stand. You may remember this post about a brilliant guy (and if not, maybe get re-acquainted with him… more soon) and my fascination with design engineering. The trade fair took place in Messe Frankfurt, one of Europe’s largest exhibition centres. It is HUGE – on one memorable night it took us an hour and a half to exit the entire site. Whilst there I got to meet lots of inspiring people working in similar design, tech and 3D printing-related spheres – I really enjoyed the networking!
I took some time out on one of the days to explore Frankfurt a little more. It’s a really beautiful city; the old part of town was particularly enchanting with lots of bohemian architecture and fanciful coloured houses. We went in late Autumn so the trees were at their most vivid and chimed in with the yellow, beige and burgundy buildings. It was incredibly peaceful wandering along the river and I felt so grateful just to be surrounded by such beautiful colours.
We were staying in the centre of Frankfurt. I was able to visit all the areas I was interested in just by walking – my favourite best way to get a feel for a new place! I’ve only been to Germany once before and I found Frankfurt to be very unique, so now I’m eager to explore further. Next time I’ll show you the christmas markets!
