I decided that after Maastricht I didn’t want to go back home on Sunday as that was such a short trip and a waste of my days off and a waste of being in Europe. I decided that I would look at the map to see where was close to Maastricht that was easy enough and short enough to get to on the train.

Cologne won the battle. I had been there on the same trip Jamie and I did the Christmas markets and we only had a couple of hours here and a brief look in the cathedral. I decided that this would be a good place to go since I hadn’t seen a lot of it.

I also decided when I was in Cologne that I would go to Bonn (since the tram went from Cologne to Bonn).

In this post, I will write about Cologne and Bonn. Apologies if it is a long post.
