Walk to Work

May 18, 2014:  By the time I got to my  hotel (about an hour’s drive from Frankfurt….and it was a drive that made me very happy I’d hired the car service, and not rented my own car!), I ate (hotel restaurant:  excellent) and went to bed.  

The next morning I was to meet another instructor at 9:00 a.m., and class was to start at 10.  One of the reasons I picked my hotel was because it is within walking distance of SAP, and has a shuttle (in case it rains!).  Also, boss John told me that if I stayed in Walldorf, I’d walk though a sunflower field on my way to work. Sold.

The sunflowers aren’t up yet,but  I can see where they will be.  The walk is still beautiful.


Leaving the hotel at about 8:30 a.m.  





The town of Walldorf is across the highway from the hotel and down a bit, but  there’ a great view on the walk.  It looks like one of the paths from SAP leads directly  into town…I’ll be checking that out tomorrow.Image

There is a path from the hotel parking lot directly to the SAP campus.  Once I got closer to the campus, the signs even helpfully point to the exact building I neededImage



I literally stopped to smell the roses….and they were even yellow.


More views on my walk….



And then, suddenly:  SAP.  I couldn’t get a picture of the entire campus; it’s huge.  And apparently there are two more campuses, also huge, within about 10 miles.

I flew from Minneapolis to Amsterdam on May 17-20th. I didn’t get much time to see the Amsterdam airport (I was there for under three hours), but I DID notice that there were lots of tulips. Everywhere.
