Sunday we went into Frankfurt City to pick up my daughter. We saw the famous Roemerberg, Dom (Cathedral) but had no time to visit the birth place of Goethe which is nearby.. A lovely meal sitting by the Main when the sun eventually showed her face somewhat.
At the huge train station, waiting for her train's arrival, my husband wanted to withdraw money with our Bank of America Visa Debit card. He couldn't. He wasn't even asked for a PIN. The machine just gobbled it up. Hubby spent hours on the phone with Bank of America and chatted online with Visa. My daughter and I in the meanwhile went for a walk thru the nearby fields: sunflowers, apple trees etc. Hubby learned that we should have alerted Visa that we were going abroad .Hello? We've been doing this for years. My husband travels all around the world and never had it happen. The jewel on the crown was that we had used the same card at a different location the day before and even got our money. .Now we are down one card.
The weather picked up again and we're enjoying the outdoors.
