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 ’cause of 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 process in 2 hours prior departure then I enter the gate 1 hour prior departure. I had chosen Sun Express as my flight to Koln because it was the best price deal to go. When I am sitting on plane’s aisle seat, I think about the plane. I will fly to Germany for about 3 hour, and here comes with no in-flight entertainment in front of the seat, just a monitor in a row. Haa, for the first time catching budget airline, but further thinking, it is not so bad at all. I got delicious meals and also the service was good. Moreover all flights to and from Germany with Sun Express happened to be 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 seeing Greece islands 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 from above, and astonishingly 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 located 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 :
Is that so attractive and funny?? Haha
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
Ya here I go
Just couples of minutes I go to Cologne Deutz Station. It is big enough, I walk to exit gate and see Asian ( they seem like sort of backpacker, make me bit envy I still not experiencing on backpacking abroad) yeah I should go next year. 😀
