The Story of The Frankfurt Edit (TFE)

They say many things are born out of necessity!  ‘They’ would be correct! A few months after moving to Frankfurt, two friends sat discussing online resources for things to do in and around Frankfurt. It was then that they realised just how little information they had access to in English and therefore how many cool events and places they were missing out on.

In the days that followed The Frankfurt Edit (TFE) was born – they took it upon themselves to find, discover and share! Where to shop, where to eat, where to get the best coffee in town and of course where to go for a fun night out! Finally, they wanted more than just run of the mill, they wanted personality, character and to find those places that dare to do something different!

In essence TFE hopes to be your ‘inspirational best friend’ showing you the coolest and best bits of Frankfurt, because trust us, there are plenty!!

About Me, Janice Henry

To give you a little insight into who I am I’ll share first a few labels life has ‘given’ me!  Also, no one label being more important than the other!!   Labels – South African, boy mum, wife, friend, yogi, photographer, coffee addict, global citizen, travel enthusiast and now Entrepreneur!

Life began for me in the very south of the African continent, South Africa.  After school and university (I studied Finance at Stellenbosch, probably learnt more about wine though) with barely 2 pennies to rub together (ignorance definitely is bliss) I moved to Europe where I lived in London for many years working in the banking world.  It was in London that I met my husband and had my 2 most precious (and challenging) gifts, my boys!  Next we headed to Asia as a family where we lived in India for 4 years.

India was an incredible journey for me and a place that allowed me to truly grow as an individual and try accept all aspects of myself (the good, the bad and the downright awesome?).  In India I was allowed to truly indulge my passion for travel and photography exploring and documenting some incredible places. India also introduced me to Yoga something I will forever be grateful for (whilst there I also trained as a yoga teacher, obviously).

I mentioned the word ‘journey’ earlier and my journey now continues here in Frankfurt and I embrace all it has to show me!

Finally, the beauty about a journey is that there are plenty of places to stop and explore along the way…so, come along with TFE for the ride and let us show you a few of our favourites!

P.S.  the images below are me embracing some of my labels!  And whilst they may be in little boxes, I try never to put my real life self in any 🙂
