Köln dom and its city

So after a great few weeks of escaping Koln am back here with a few days to kill before heading to South America. It’s time to hit those spots that I had skipped during my initial days here. First stop is the Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral). It is a renowned monument of German Catholicism and Gothic architecture and is a World Heritage Site.

It is Germany’s most visited landmark, attracting an average of 20,000 people a day. It’s Gothic architecture from the outside is a sight to behold. The interior tells a story and as you ascend the 533 narrow and claustrophobic staircases it becomes all worth it.

The concept of the love bridge is one that I admire and like, well am a sucker for love and the idea of putting a padlock on the bridge and hoping its permanency there reflects the permanency of your love is beautiful. As I walked on the love bridge and looking back on my initial days when i arrived and comparing to my feelings now; I am happy to say it may have started roughly but it all turned out to be an extremely exciting time and vacation.

The architecture of Köln or generally Europe always make me awe, it’s old and rich and just gives a good feel of prosperity. My host is a walker and so we walked and walked and walked some more all around the known and unknown corners of the city. As I drunk in the last sights, last walks in the deserted parks, I knew it was time to pause the Europe chapter and venture into a new world in South America.

In one week I will be in somewhere in South America and I look forward catching up with you on all the sunshine the Latin world will bestow on me. IMG_0989
