Finally after such a long time waiting for getting free trip to Germany, my great dream. Today I am able to go there. Before going to Germany I was facing lot of simple and complicated problems. Issuing visa was so cruel, it took 13 days only for me becoz my nationality, but finally I could handle it.
I will depart from Izmir(Adnan Manderes Airport) to Cologne(Koln Bonn Airport) at 22:45. I begin check in 2 hours before departure then I enter the gate 1 hour prior to departure. I had chosen Sun Express as my flight to Koln because it was the best price to go. When I am sitting on plane’s chair I think about the plane. I will flight to Germany for about 3 hour, and here not any in-flight entertainment front of chair, just little big monitor. Haa I think it is the risk for getting cheap flight. J but think fully it is not so bad at all. I got delicious meals and also the service is good. Ha almost forgot that all flight to Germany with Sun Express may be just served in 2 languages on board, Turkish and Deutsch, so be aware if you don’t know both.😀
3 hours goes so quickly. I just watching over and I see Greece at the night, impressive!! Then I just was spending all time with log sleeping. J after that I awake from my short sleep because of stewardess’s announcement about plane will landing in no time. I see around cologne over, and beautiful!!! Especially Rhein river, it so great!!!
After had a baggage claim I go to cologne airport station to take a train to Cologne Deutz where my hostel locate and I will stay there for 5 days later attending 14th World Business Dialogue. I make payment from this machine:
And this is my train ticket:
2hour to go!!!!
Waiting for the train, I was interested in walking around here. I see attractive photograph :

I also catch a picture of Germany’s bullet train :ICE trains which passing through.
Finally my train comes at punctual (think that here like Japan): so happy that Germany is really one of best country to go
