Berlin to Cologne

Another blog without photos as it has been mainly travelling. However, before leaving this morning we did stroll to a local park ( The Humbolthein...also called a Volkspark...people’s park from communist times). It was rather a nice open space with lots of trees and it was good to get a walk before boarding the next train. Intercity express to Cologne...very fast and very comfortable. We arrived (5 minutes late!) in Cologne just after 5 and found our hotel conveniently near the station, and very nice. We got ourselves settled then off for a walk and in search of food and Kölsch ( local beer) both of which we found in abundance...it being Germany where portion size is not an issue😀. The Kölnisch Dom as ever looks beautiful at night as it is illuminated...but as so many lovely buildings, suffers from scaffolding! In spite of a seemingly lazy day, we still managed about 5 miles. Yesterday, while a few entries were still available on th errant “mock Fitbit “, using them plus some stuff I’d put on here, I calculate our walking over the holiday has totalled to date about 115 miles!- not bad for two old codgers like us.
