  • Welcome to Cologne.

  • After a relaxing stay in Amsterdam,

  • we decided to do a quick stopover in Cologne.

  • From Amsterdam to Cologne

  • it was roughly 2 hours 40 minutes by train.

  • We just got off the train at Cologne

  • This is one of the cities I've been looking forward to

  • because of the cathedral.

  • And we're just walking out of the station

  • and we should see the cathedral right away as soon as we step out.

  • Can't Wait!

  • Just arrived in Cologne and literally just stepped into this room

  • so I'll show you guys this before it get messed up this time.

  • So this is Hotel Engelbertz

  • in Cologne.

  • It's really convenient!

  • Right outside is the main strip with all the shops and everything.

  • And it's really close to the station,

  • about an 8 minute walk.

  • So, right through the front door we have a sofa bed - single bed.

  • And that's for Jenny.

  • And then,

  • we have a double bed over here.

  • And this is the bathroom.

  • Looks pretty clean.

  • And we have a little TV.

  • A cupboard to store stuff.

  • Here we have a window

  • so

  • let's see what our view is.

  • So our view is of a cafe.

  • And then there's a heater for winter.

  • And on this side we have another window

  • of the shops.

  • It seems pretty good.

  • Anton was saying that

  • it seems like every single room we get

  • gets more and more like a nursing home.

  • A: Getting old... W: *laughs*

  • Here, look at him,

  • he's all run down now.

  • Cologne was so laid-back and relaxing

  • Every person that we met,

  • was so friendly and helpful

  • that is was hard to not fall in love with this city.

  • I think the most iconic building in the city

  • would have to be the Cologne cathedral

  • or dom.

  • I first came across this cathedral

  • in a documentary I was watching

  • and straight away

  • I turned to Anton and I said:

  • "We have to add this to our itinerary."

  • Entry to the cathedral is free

  • so make sure you check it out.

  • So when travelling, be prepared, to catch the wrong train

  • 'cos you're bound to do it.

  • Which we've just done.

  • Um...it's bound to happen

  • when you don't know the language

  • and um...

  • when you look at the board and you have absolutely no idea what it says.

  • We hopped on the train, but then someone helped us,

  • told us to get off

  • and so we're just waiting for the next train right now.

  • We're currently in Cologne, Germany.

  • I haven't had the chance to really explain much

  • because we've just been so run down and tired.

  • But, today it's raining

  • and I managed to get a few shots of the cathedral

  • and we went on a walking tour yesterday which was really interesting.

  • Pondering life...

  • on the German train.

  • A: "What will I eat today?"

  • "What has the world got in store for me?"

  • W: Pondering life...

  • as a Pokemon master.

  • A: Oh, I wish I was.

  • We didn't spend long in Cologne

  • but it made a really good stopover

  • between Amsterdam and Berlin.

  • Wandering
