05 Danube

Page 2- Cologne, Germany
Day 3 – October 24, 2005
This morning we cruise on the Rhine. Peaceful river meadows and idyllic villages appear along the river banks. We pass Duisburg, the world’s largest inland port. Here we encounter the mouth of the Ruhr River, the lifeline of Germany’s Rhur District. Cruise through fashionable Dusseldorf before arriving in Cologne, where we tour the Cathedral (550 foot spires). The ship docks near the cathedral, making it easy to enjoy a walk through the old town where you can find many good pubs and taverns for an after dinner drink. It was cold and rainy in Cologne. The Guide at the Cathedral is very interesting, but none of my pictures are very good. I do not have a tripod and its dark and needs a long exposure to get anything worthwhile. We spend our free time walking through the shopping area which is crowded with other shoppers. We finally figure out where to get some Irish whiskey and then it is time to meet the bus to go back to the ship for dinner. We dress for the Captain’s welcoming dinner this evening

Read the Travel logue for this trip. It will be a long scroll to get to the 2005 Danube River Cruise travel journal notes. There are fairly comprehensive travel journal notes on this photo album page. HERE - Pre 1989 Travel Logue
