day off - cologne

 

and so, another early train!! 6am rise, and marlies is kind enough, again, to drive us to the train station. all this for a day off, but Sunday train travel in germany is busy and all the trains in the late morning and afternoon were sold out. we had to leave extra early too, because there was construction on the track between kiel and hamburg - and you know how well those hamburg tight train connections work - they don't...
so we arrived an hour early in hamburg, enough time to have a good breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the whole station.
next, back on to our favourite IC from Hamburg to Cologne.
This time we had made plans with Martin to stay over. He met us by the crowded waterfront, and we went back to his new apartment, got cleaned up, and went out for some kolsch beer in a local beer garden. 
after that, back to his house to have dinner with him and his girlfriend Eva, and we drank some good whiskey too and listened to our new album...
