A boring Saturday

2004-10-09 | Cologne, Germany

I didn't do a whole lot today. I woke up and spoke with a Canadian girl that was in my hostel. She is traveling the world solo for over a year! I have met many people that are doing this and it is pretty cool. I was surprised that she had enough money saved to do it. She has been all throughout Asia and Europe. I did mistake her for an American because of her accent.

I slept in probably because I am getting a little sick. I am just getting a little cold. But I took my vitamins (Barb) and some of the cold medicine to help fight it early.

I am bound to get a little sniffle here on my trip because I am coming in contact with so many germs, I am not sleeping a ton, I am eating all the local food and much more. Oh well, I will be fine. I am insured so if it gets bad I will go to the doctor.

I mostly hung around the hostel chit chatting because I was seeing if I could get another night here. The hostel was booked which didn't matter

I saw general Patton several times in passing in World War 2because I was in a special service (a recon service) under which he was thegeneral. One time I remember seeing himwas a nice spring day in Nurnberg Germany. We were waiting for orders to go forward andour batalion was there for cleanup. Itwas a week or two before the war ended.

It was at this time that I had a jeep, and having a jeep waslike being a taxi driver; you had to take everyone everywhere.

I came along this part of the road where it had been bombedout and there was only about 1 lane open for about 1/2 mile. I took my sweet old time. It was that nice spring day and I thought Iwould take it a little slower than we usually were paced.

It was then I heard an air horn (bleep bleep). They used to use air horns with the coloredtroops got assigned driving trucks and I thought it was one of them. But pretty soon I got to a wide part of theroad and what went by me was a

The full German Experience (in a day)

2004-10-13 | Munich, Germany Today was absolutely great. But it did start out a little scary. Once I got into town, it was very difficult to find accommodation. I thought it would be a piece of cake because Oktoberfest is over with. (Yeah I know...I missed it.. but read on) Anyway after a lot of wandering to find a place and a lot of phone calls I finally found some really cheap accommodation.

I dropped my bag off and left because my room wouldn't be ready until 2 PM. I hadn't had a shower yet but didn't feel entirely gross. I still just mapped out some sights to see while having breakfast and was off.

Today it was free for me to get around by the train because I have a rail pass. The funny thing is, is that there is no security for tickets to ride the trains. Anyone can hop on, but if you got caught I am sure there would be a hefty fine.

My first stop was a huge church and also some gardens and the main
