Travel Day - Lisbon to CologneMarch 23, 2018 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C
The rain is back. We walked in the drizzle to the Metro station, a 1 km uphill walk and then down 2 flights of stairs. Despite the fact we are now quite experienced with this routine, it just never gets easier. The Metro took us directly to the Lisbon Airport. John was pleased that we arrived 3 hours before our flight. There were no snags; the 3 hour Air Portugal flight was smooth; and we arrived in Cologne on schedule at 6:00. It sure was nice to see the smiling faces of Cheryl and Uwe (pronounced “Ooo-ver”) welcoming us to Cologne.
They have a large, bright apartment just outside of Cologne with a spare room for guests. It was perfect. We shared our travel stories and got updates on their lives. Dinner was at a nearby Turkish restaurant with very good chicken shish-kebabs. We’re both enjoying having someone new to talk to.Read more
