I feel extremely guilty for laughing right about now. Seriously, guilty.

Small dogs.

One was well behaved and lay down quietly the whole trip.
The other...

I'm not sure, but I think if you took Satan and shoved him in a small furry four legged body... he'd be that dog.
Every time someone would walk by, all you could hear was barking, snarling and growling.
The gentleman, perhaps bowing to the inevitable, made no move to quiet Satan.

Lovely.

It makes sense, of course.
I mean, first we descend into hell, then we meet Satan.

It's obvious, in hindsight.


Later on, a staff member came by and offered sandwichs.
I had to try one when she said it was cheese and fig.

meh.
It was okay, but I wouldn't bother having another one.


Eventually, Kay mentioned that she had to use the restroom, but wasn't sure where it was.
I went with her to find one.
I walked first to the closer end of the train where I was told that the washroom there was not in service, but there was one at the other end of the car.
We turned around and headed in the opposite direction.

Darn it if I hadn't forgotten about Satan.
As I walked past the aforementioned gentleman, I noticed a small dog sleeping at his feet.

Aww. Nice puppy. I miss my dog.

Suddenly, Satan comes charging out from under the seat, barking and snarling and trying....
Well it's a small dog, so I'm gonna say... trying to gnaw on my ankle.

Oh no. Hysterical. Aww. Nice puppy.

Still, scared the prac out of me (I 'membered this time, Heather)


After a few hours, we arrive in Cologne, Germany.
Upon exiting the train station, the first thing you see is this



I'll have more to say about the incredible Cologne Cathedral in the next chapter.

Wow, can't wait to hear and say.
Right now we're tired and want to get rid of our bags, so we set off to find a taxi to take us to our hotel.

There's four of us with all our luggage.
No teeny tiny euro clown car is going to work.
One of the drivers is commandeering a van, and after sizing up our haul, agrees to take us.
Once all the bags are loaded and we cram ourselves into the cab, I tell the driver that we're going to the Art'otel Cologne.

I'm usually a pretty quick study.
Well, sometimes I'm a pretty quick study...

If you hit me over the head often enough, I eventually realize that something's going on.


The driver's look of disbelief clued me in that perhaps the hotel wasn't overly far away.

Turns out it was about one mile away.
This is all priceless. Perfectly communicated!

I don't know what to think here.
I get that he didn't have far to drive... but it's his job, right?
I also get that Europeans walk a lot more than your typical person on this side of the pond.
But then again, we did have a ton of bags to schlepp...

What do you think?
Would you walk a mile with suitcases?
Or would you take a cab?

Walking a mile. Walk many miles most days. YES. But with suitcases - unless it's one and a small one and on wheels, NOPE to walking and I'm a huge walker.

More on this in a couple of chapters.


We arrive at our hotel where I've booked two rooms.
One for the the rugrats
The other for us.

Or you could say, I booked two rooms in an effort to preserve what little sanity we might have left after spending the last few days in one room together.

The kids' room




Evil suitcase in bottom right hand corner!!!


Our room





Oh, just ADORE. Love both of them. I love clean lines.

The green tinge comes from the green tinted windows that were there.
I have no idea, why.
Style? UV blocking? One way?

Wasn't it nice of Elle to come by and model our room for us?

It was.

Now get out.

Harsh.

This hotel was ultra modern and was easily Kay's favorite of the trip.

Why are we in American spelling? YOu know my hands stop every single time I'm typing Canadian/British spelling on here. It's so annoying. I talk to my hands but it's still happening.


After we had settled in, it was time to find someplace to have supper.
Between our hotel and the train station, I had read that there was a shopping area and an area where there was a collection of restaurants.

We set out and found a nice place to sit outside and have dinner.

Our view from our table



Oh lovely.

We lucked out with the restaurant as it was the best meal we'd had so far.
I think it was even the best meal of the trip.
I don't remember exactly what everyone had, but I know some of the highlights were sausages and pork steaks.
It was all really, really good.

That's nice.

Now, I'm not a beer drinker.
Usually I'll order almost anything else before I'll have a beer.
But Cologne is known for it's own brand of beer, called Kölsch.

When in Rome....
But when in Germany, drink beer.

So I ordered one.



Not bad, actually.


After dinner, we strolled along Schildergasse.

Schildergasse is the busiest shopping street in all of Europe.
How busy?

How about 13,000 people... every hour.

Wow, really loved the information and seeing it.





We strolled the street for a while and popped into a few shops,
but eventually we decided that we were done for the day and it was time to head back to the hotel.

We'd turned around a lot.

So we got lost.


We wandered in what I thought was the right direction for a bit, but couldn't find anything that we recognized.

So on this leg of the race, to find our pit stop, we did what any good team would do.

We popped into a hotel and asked for directions.

Good team. Remember when, oh those two gay guys, crap - O - starts with O was it Oscar and _____________ - anyway remember when those two gay hispanic guys, who were friends, went into one area to get information and they went shopping instead? They went shopping while they were on the race. So funny! Totally entertaining myself on your TR.


And once again, I've totally blown any chance of ever getting my man card back.

Men do not ask for directions.
Ever.

Funny.

Ah well.


It turns out that we were headed in the right direction, we were just one street over from where we wanted to be.


As we sashayed back to our hotel, we discussed our plans for the next day.
I was really looking forward to knocking another item off my bucket list.

For years I'd heard that one of the nicer ways to see Germany was via a Rhine river cruise.

Oh. Sighing. My mother always wanted that. A river cruise through Europe. Now she's in her later stages of dementia and it will never come. At least she did a UK trip. Sad.

I had done tons of research on how we could fit a cruise into our itinerary.
I discovered that it's best to cruise from south to north (with the current).
I found that the best part of the rhine was from Bacharach to Koblenz.
I also learned that you couldn't get tickets in advance, but that there was always plenty of room on board.

Our original plan was to take a train down, take a day cruise up the Rhine then take another train over to Munich.
With a little more digging, we decided that it would be easier to stay another night in Cologne.
This way we could leave our bags in the hotel instead of either lugging them along everywhere on the ship
or storing them in a locker at a train station....
that we'd have to double back to.

The only hitch was the train travel.
If we waited until the day of to get our tickets we ran a small risk of finding that the train was full.

So I purchased the train tickets in advance.

We leave Cologne at 7:53am and arrive Bacharach at 9:30am.
We then have 45 minutes to catch the ship.
If for some reason we miss the ship, there's another one an hour later.
Depending on which ship we're on, we would arrive in Koblenz at 1:10pm or 2:10pm.
Lastly we catch the 3:15pm train which gets us back to Cologne by 4pm.

So we're all set! I can't wait!


Anyway, on the walk back to the hotel, we decided not to do it.



Apparently I had too many smilies!

Plus I think she thought it would be boring... which, to be honest, it might've been for her.

Elle wanted to go. But Ruby's vote holds more weight.

Smart decision.

It wound up costing us about 100 euros in non-refundable train tickets,
but it wasn't worth keeping our plans if it was going to make Ruby (and Kay) miserable.

Yep, smart decision!


Oh, well.
I've done the research.
Maybe next time.

Next time!
As we got close to our hotel, we decided on a quick detour to a building that was quite literally a stone's throw from our hotel.

I mean, who wouldn't?

Wouldn't you?

It was the Lindt chocolate factory and museum.


Unfortunately, the museum had just closed.
But (surprise, surprise) the gift shop was still open for a bit longer.



We looked and salivated for a bit then bought some goodies for ourselves and for friends and family back home.

Some of the goodies up for sale.





mmmmmm... chocolate.

mmmmmmm... chocolate.

Back at the hotel, we gathered up our laundry so we could get it done the next day.
I have no idea where a laundromat is, and I don't want to know.
The hotel can do it!
Why not?
We're on vacation!

Exactly. Why not!

Next chapter I'll tell you why not.

Oh no.
Loved the update. Thank you. And can't wait for the next.

You don't have to apologize to me.
They walk (or bike) way, waaay more then we do over on this side of the pond.

I remember hearing how my aunt and uncle (who were in their 70s at the time) were in a walking club.

They'd walk 30 kms (19 miles) and then have torte (rich cake)... then they'd walk back!

yep he broke his leg. we are 55 days out and hoping that he will have the cast off in time for WDW. If not we will just have to rent him a scooter and he can be "that guy" you know the one I am talking about the one who runs over us at the parks

Well, since his stroke he was told to walk everyday for exercise. So since or granddaughter was born he has been walking with our daughter with Scarlett in her stroller pretty much every day. Last Tuesday he slipped and the ankle went one way but the rest of the leg stayed put until it fractured that is. So long story short is he laid up for 6 weeks or so. this of course happened right after we paid for our trip in Jan. But the doc said he should be ok for the most part by then.
to add to the irony of this we really wanted to take scarlett to WDW (yeah she is young but they are just so darn portable at this age) and in order to do that we need to take the food source and ok I guess the son in law can come too we will make it work either way and make sure to pack some bubble wrap for lance I guess.
Lady H said she should come out with a bubble wrap cothing line and between Nebo and Lance she could make a nice bit of cash just from them

betsey, thoughts and prayers for you guys and a speedy recovery for Lance. sucks about the timing, too.

you should be ok; I'm sure you'll make the best of it. spend some time over on the disabilities board to get info.. they are a nice bunch over there. Sue M and katy peveler are the moderators, a great couple of gals. if you don't see ithe info you need, just start a new thread to ask.

mostly you'll want to find out where are the handicapped entrances are. with ecvs and wheelchair, with the new DAS system, mostly you go through the regular line now, except for a few things. not sure, I didnt check that out, I only checked out the low vision stuff. don't be afraid to ask for al the help you need!

Wow. I do really long walks that I go "did I just walk that?" but I would bet they are 5-6 miles tops. I would do well over there.



You were in Japan!

I was in Sendai.


That's how we designed our house.

Lucky you guys! I just took out the meal information. I don't know, something nasty. Hysterical.



Oh, man! I hear ya! Every time I type 'colour' or "behaviour" I always wonder if readers are thinking, "British" or "typo".

Looks like we both need to stop our nonsensical behaviour!

Thank you on Mom.

And can't wait for the update.

I think she should fill the bubbles with helium too... so they float.
You ladies could attach a tether to your respective accident prone husbands and float them around Disney.


No wait. More then likely the tethers would break and they'd get sucked into a passing 747's engine or something.

Better keep 'em on the ground. Getting run over by an ECV is probably not as bad.

Geez I wish I had access to photoshop right about now. (at work)

Please note.
Nebo did not, repeat not mention my name among those he did not wish a hug from.

Poor guy. Obviously the mind is going too.
