JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Cologne & Dusseldorf

We disembarked at Cologne and joined our tour guide for a one and a half hour guided walking tour of Cologne then free time to take in the lovely city.  It's lovely to take photos with a blue sky background and today didn't disappoint although it is still very cold particularly in the wind.  Cologne is dwarfed by the Cathedral standing proudly in the city centre.  At one time it was the tallest building in the world.  We asked why it wasn't bombed in WWII and it is thought that the allies used it as a landmark for their bombings.  Cologne was bombed more than a hundred times during the war.  Once our tour finished we boarded the bus to Dusseldorf and our ship.  Tonight all passengers were taken by bus to Schlossburg Castle for a guided tour, dinner and entertainment.
