I really didn’t have an itinerary for my Cologne trip. There is no Lonely Planet city guide for Cologne, and sadly, I feel a little lost without an LP. So mostly, I just based my daily activities on the weather (the rain was just crazy! it was April after all), my energy level and my mood. On the first day, I just got totally lost and wandered off past a really huge cemetery (I was rather creeped out) and into a residential area when all I wanted was to visit a trendy neighborhood I read about. Oops.
But whaddyaknow, walking is the only exercise I am really good at, so getting lost is no problem for me at all. I always find my way back.
Walking miles and miles, I not only accumulate steps on my Fitbit, but also get to see a lot of random stuff. Here, a round-up of cute things (and a person) I saw:
At the House of 4711, I found this cute vending machine on display. It says “please refresh yourself”
