I like to travel by train. Nostalgia aside, its convenient and relaxing. Getting to the airport and having to endure the screening, it has becoming a trip of its own – a weary one.

Even during the high of summer, the trains, in Germany anyway are not fully booked. Even if it is, one could still sit in the dining car. We took the early AM train to Köln, wasn’t full but we had breakfast there anyway. The ride was little over an hour, so by the time we finsihed our last bite, the tip of the Cathedral (Dom) came into our view.
