    Cologne

    October 7, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    A very cold day out and about in Cologne as our guide showed us around the massive Cologne Cathedral. The allied forces largely spared the cathedral during WW2 due to it's value, so it is in original condition.

    Also checked out the Eau De Cologne store (Farina fragrance museum), Lovelock bridge, and the city shopping precinct.

    We were warned about pickpockets, so were careful, but one of the young male passengers from our ship was shoulder charged by a young german bloke in the city...probably an anti-American sentiment we think.

    Köln, Germany

    Day 28:

    Back in Germany, away from the unbiasedly offensive Dutch language to the mildly angry sounding German language. Yes, you read that right, German sounds less abrasive the Dutch.

    At Amsterdam Centraal, we knew what train we were going to take, and what time it left. But while waiting at the track, we noticed a little message at the bottom that translated to surcharge train. We decided that we would go get reservations, just in case. But since reservations technically aren't allowed to be last minute, we thought we would have to go on the next one 2 hours later. The lady at the desk told us she could put us on the one that was leaving in... 4 minutes. On the complete opposite side of the train station. And she said, "you're young, you can do it. And its the last car, so it'll be easy". So we jet for what we took to be the last car that would be easier for us to catch. Turns out we were at the wrong "last car". So it was an adventure walking through thin aisles with our massive bags on. After that, we had a painless train ride of just under 3 hours. But just as we were approaching the city... you know the clouds that come over Pride Rock after Mufasa gets killed, Scar takes over and Simba goes away? Pretty much those exact clouds completely covered the city. After that ominous experience, we pulled up to the train station, got out expecting it to be bitterly cold. Nope, perfect temperature. Oh, and we were also greeted by the tallest twin spired church in the world. Absolutely our favorite church so far. We were stopped in our tracks for a good 3 minutes. We thought St Petri in Bremen was going to be our favorite, but it just lost its top spot.

    While on this trip we haven't done too much on travel days, and this one was no different. We made dinner at home and, being in the home of the Kölsch, picked up a local beer. We also made a new friend and subsequently named him Meeko because he has a racoon tail.

    Thunderstorms are expected for tomorrow, so fingers crossed that we can still make it around to see the sights. I see quite a bit of potato soup in our future!

    Das alte Kölner Rathaus

    August 24, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Nachdem wir aus dem Dom gegangen sind, haben Nadines Füße immer mehr weh getan, da ihre Schuhe leider etwas zu eng sind. Damit wir zumindest noch etwas weiter gehen können, sind wir dann in den Tamaris in der Nähe und haben nach Schuhen geschaut. Selbstverständlich hat Nadine Schuhe gefunden und mit neuen Tretern ging es dann weiter. Zwei Ziele hatte ich für heute noch auf dem Zettel. Das alte Kölner Rathaus und die Groß St. Martin Kirche. Erfreulicherweise war am Rathaus heute eine Hochzeit und somit hatte ich das Glück, den wunderschönen Oldtimer vor dem Rathaus zu knipsen.Read more
