Bonn & Cologne

After a month of traveling around Europe, I have reached my main destination at last. The conference is the reason why I was able to visit Europe. Since I had a complex time in applying for  Schengen, I opted traveling around so my efforts will not be wasted.

I did not really travel much while I was at Cologne. I spent most of the time meeting with new people and catching up with my schoolwork since I had already miss a week. My focus that week  was to be a proactive participant. In addition, several of the attractions in Cologne are found close to our hostel hence we were able to explore in less than a day.

We also visited Bonn as part of the program. Bonn is the hometown of composer Ludwig van Beethoven and here, you can  visit his home (designated as a museum) where he spent his early years. The musical instruments he used and some compositions are displayed at the museum.

My three-month journey overseas is finally coming to an end. It was a pleasant experience full of excitement, and unexpected twists. The friends I made, new cultures I had learned and challenges I had overcome will always be a significant memory for me.

    I was born and grew up in Cologne and since 12 years Bonn is my hometown. I’m very proud that you visited both cities and gave you a great impression and showed it different faces. Although they are near by, they’re very different. And a your pictures are wonderful!
