Ready for take-off: Duty-free and more at the Airport

Today I flew from Frankfurt to Nice. Of course, you always have to be well in advance at the airport. My flight was scheduled for 8:25 a.m. and I arrived at the airport at 7:00 a.m. I dropped off my luggage and passed the security check in record time. Sunday morning seems to be a low frequented time.

Duty-free Shopping

I love to stroll around in the different duty-free shopping areas. Usually, I get completely lost in the perfume department and end up finding a fantastic deal on a particular perfume I always wanted or any other beauty product.

This time I fell in love with a pair of Chloe Sunglasses.  Unfortunately, I just got new Prada Sunglasses the other week.

And I was starving since I only had a coffee before I left my home.

I decided to postpone the Chloe Sunglasses. -Which I should regret only hours later.

Would you like to find out more about duty-free shopping at Frankfurt Airport? Please see here.



The duty-free shopping area in Frankfurt Terminal 1 is quite vast and offers several Bistro / Snack points too.

When ever I fly from Terminal 1 I visit Meyer gourmet shop and find something delicious. I had a Turkey Sandwich and a Cappuccino. To eat and drink well when you travel is so important.

Additionally, I bought two bottles of water. This is something I always do. Drinking water is the most important when you travel.

Work at the airport

I love to fly business class as everybody else would love to.

Another extra when you fly business class is that you can you the lounges. But for short haul flights, there is no point for me to spend the extra money.

The waiting areas in most airports are quite nice nowadays. Mostly you can find work areas where you can charge your devices and get some work done.

There is always some for time checking the latest Emails or Social Media or get some work done. In the meantime, my devices are getting charged.

    Wow, this is such a nice airport! The ones I travel from are nowhere as nice to this (JFKor LaGuardia in NYC). I would totally end up lost in those luxury boutiques, especially with that Chloe collection! Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you’re having a great day so far!

    Duty free has always been my best place on an airport or you can say the only attraction for me in the airport.

    I love the deals you can get in the duty free. We are traveling next week to Germany and you actually gave me a good idea to look for a new pair of sunglasses ❤️
