As promise, through out my “Impulsive Travelling 2012: Spain & Germany”, I will keep running a session of PathTest whenever I have WIFI connection.   Please remember to follow this blog if you are interested to see the geek side of my latest trip =)

This is my third time stopping by Frankfurt and I continue to stay in Best Western Hotel Plaza because of its location.  It is close enough to train station (about 5 minutes walk)  yet it is not busy.  Honestly, every time I stop by Frankfurt to for connecting to another city.  Being nice and close train station is always a big plus!  I really plan to stop at Frankfurt for some shopping and good rest.  No major sight seeing/activity planned.

The internet in this hotel connection feels smooth.  I am continuously using my laptop, iPad and iPhone and not notice any issue.  Here is the PathTest result.
