End Bahnof, two small words with big meaning. Picture this: Two people... foreign country...with little knowledge of the language, but they didn't let that stop them. They hopped the train into the city to go sightseeing and visit the zoo. After a fun afternoon, and feeling quite proud of themselves, they boarded the train to return to their hotel. Theirs was the last stop and so they waited. End Bahnof came and went and still they sat...waiting for their stop...until... The train finally came to a stop...in something like a tunnel, dark and deserted.

Who were those people, you ask? Why, that would be me and my hubby, of course, in Germany, back a dozen or so years, and after sitting in what was probably a turnaround, we'll never forget the importance of End Bahnof. (Translation - end railway station, or the end of the line).
