Last week, I spent part of my birthday in my birthday suit, and then part of it eating ice cream with friends. Both things were free and relaxing.
I found out that Monte Mare, the spa/swimming pool/sauna in Kaiserslautern, gives a free admission on a person's birthday. I showed my ID with my birthdate and was given an unlimited amount of time in the whole facility. Parts of the facility are family friendly, such as the area with a huge swimming pool, hot tub, and water slides. The other part, which is mostly the sauna area and some pools, is for adults only because it it is FKK/textil frei (in other words, no bathing attire is allowed). I went for a swim, sat in a sauna, and dozed in the cozy area for relaxing.
Following that, I met some friends for dinner at Papasote. I walked there and the three of them pulled up in unison, on their bikes. It was so cute! We enjoyed dinner and I received a free fried ice cream, a birthday gift from the restaurant.
All in all, it was a great day after work. I relaxed, spent some time with great people, and shared ice cream, for free.
