“It’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.” ~ Unknown author

This morning was a day of relaxation and gentle cruising down the Rhine River to our next destination in Cologne Germany. After a leisurely breakfast we headed to the deck of the riverboat to watch a little of the world go by. Despite the chill and the fog it was still beautiful until the rain started.

After lunch we arrived in Cologne, Germany. It is one of the oldest and one of the largest cities in Germany and dates back to Roman times. We took a city tour and passed by the famous Farina Cologne factory. The original Eau de Cologne is a spirit-citrus perfume launched in Cologne in 1709 by Giovanni Maria Farina. There is a central rail station in the city and many historical sites.

We headed on to the Cologne Cathedral. The cathedral has two massive towers which dominate the cities skyline. It is a renowned monument of German Catholicism and Gothic architecture and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1996

After all of the history lessons my brain was in need of an afternoon gin and tonic and then another delicious dinner with good company, good conversation and good wine. This was followed by a fun, frenetic, disco, black light and alcohol party to continue the upcoming wedding celebration for tomorrow!

“I’m having fun. I’m being myself. I’m doing what I love. That’s all that matters.”
