Sunday Snapshots: Out and In

Cologne, 2017

March is a bit thin on the ground when it comes to travel pictures, so instead of delving into the archive today, these photos are from last weekend.

An old friend of mine from college was traveling through France and Belgium with her mom, and she was lovely enough to work a day in Cologne into their short trip. BV and I doubled down for the trip, and stopped by his grandma’s for a visit before heading to Cologne on Saturday night.

The only other time I had been in Cologne, it absolutely poured rain. That theme continued on this trip, with a *slightly stressful* drive into the city in the midst of a spring storm. We arrived much later than planned, ran out into the deluge to try to find a restaurant that would still serve us dinner, and were rewarded by both a silent city and an epic view of the Kölner Dom* lit up at night.

Thankfully by the next morning the rain had passed and we had blue skies for the majority of the day with my old friend. We took advantage of the weather to explore more of the old city center, the lovely walk along the Rhine, and a short dip into the cathedral itself. Sunday is not the best day to visit if you want to see the entirety of the church, but at least we got in the door. Besides, if they’re traveling through France, they’ll be cathedral-ed out in a day or two anyway, right?

    • You and your towers! 🙂
      Not this time, not even sure if that would’ve been an option. We could only go into the vestibule area as they were starting an afternoon service shortly. Do you remember where the entry was for the tower?

      • Heh. I haven’t been in anything tall for MONTHS. Starting to get restless…

        The tower entrance was around the side, not through the main cathedral entrance.

      • Too much flatness in Florida? Perhaps it’s time to scale Cinderella’s castle at DW?
        Totally missed the entrance then, so no idea if we could’ve done it. Too much catching up to do… hazard of not seeing someone for five years! 🙂
